    Aus cricketers reach new pay deal: reports

    Sydney: Australian media reports that Cricket Australia have sealed a new pay deal with its top players, avoiding possible strike action by the national team during its current tour to England.

    The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Wednesday that Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers' Association have signed a memorandum of understanding, heading off action by top players when their contracts expire on June 30.

    Talks between the governing body and players had reportedly stalled because of differences around the current revenue sharing model and CA's push for performance-based contracts.

    The Herald said that the deadlock was broken when CA agreed to share a quarter of revenues from the 2015 World Cup with players.
