CA-ACA pay dispute set to end soon

Even as progress is being made, the wait for a solution in the pay dispute between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers' Association is set to continue longer. While most key aspects of the dispute are reported to have been resolved in the discussion and a Heads of Agreement is still being redrafted with no formal announcement made on Wednesday, reports Cricbuzz.

"Progress is being made with the ACA but we will not comment on details of the negotiations," a Cricket Australian spokesperson was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

With optimism that the Heads of Agreement will be signed as early as Thursday, it should allow Australia's tour of Bangladesh to go ahead as per schedule. Australian vice captain David Warner is confident that a solution will be reached within the next two days.

"We're hoping a deal gets done in the next 24 to 48 hours," Warner told the Nine Network. "We want to get out there and play cricket. That's our job."

In June, the negotiations between the two sides had broken down, with the previous Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) expiring at midnight on June 30, leaving 230 Australian cricketers officially unemployed. Only about 70 domestic male cricketers were on contract at that time.
