The Australian players are currently unemployed as they have a pay dispute to settle with Cricket Australia. The Federation of International Cricketers Associations (FICA) has extended its support to the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA).
"FICA is concerned with CA's desire to end the percentage revenue sharing model that has so successfully underpinned the partnership between the players and administrators in Australia for twenty years," FICA said in a media statement.
"The model has not only been hugely successful for Australian cricket but has been a model of best practise adopted by associations in cricket and other sports, worldwide," the statement said.
According to FICA, 230 professional cricketers, whom it represents, have been rendered unemployed following the ending of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the players and CA and the failure of the latter to negotiate a new agreement with the ACA based on the same partnership principles of the previous MOU.
Former Australia skipper Michael Clarke feels that the current situation in Australian cricket must be sorted at the earliest and the players should be allowed to focus on the upcoming Ashes. He also feels that while the women’s team deserves praise for their current showing in the ICC Women’s World Cup, the media is busy covering the on-going pay dispute.
Clarke feels that the current Memorandum of Understanding should continue to be in effect for the next 12 months while Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) can sort out the issues behind closed doors.
