Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) chief Paul Marsh said his organisation and Cricket Australia (CA) had hit a stalemate over negotiations for a new five-year deal and were looking at all their options.
However, he insisted any strike would be “an absolute last resort”.
Marsh said the ACA was looking for about Aus$30 million ($29m) but it is not clear yet how much CA have put on the table. Marsh said Australia’s participation in the Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka in September could be under threat, along with Australia’s one-day international tour of England in June-July. “You can’t rule anything out,” Marsh told SEN Radio.
