Oz cricketers' body prepare report for CA outlining concerns over country's cricket

Sydney, Oct 19 : The Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) is reportedly preparing a report outlining the players' concerns about the state of cricket in the country and offering proposals to stop the decline.

ACA chief executive Paul Marsh will gather feedback from past and current cricket players from the country before submitting the final report to Cricket Australia (CA) by year's end.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the major issues tackled in the report include scheduling, 'over-prioritisation of Twenty20 cricket', strength of pathway competitions, injury management, coaching, governance and leadership.

Expecting the CA to take the concerns seriously, Marsh said that they expect a proper discussion around those issues, adding that he has not yet convinced whether the Argus review had made any difference to Australian cricket given that the team has gone down from being the most dominant men's team to a team ranked mid-table in all three formats.

Marsh also said that the report also questioned the failures of the production line of batsmen, the fast bowlers frequently getting injured and the struggle to combat swing and spin bowling.
