Oz star cricketers considering pay cut to 'address issues' facing sport in country

Sydney, Dec 3 : Australia's star cricketers are considering dipping into their own pay to fund some of the solutions to the game's problems in this country, as some believe Cricket Australia is not doing enough to address the issues facing the sport, according to reports.


According to the Sydney Morning Herald, as Australia celebrates returning as a force in the Ashes, the players' union is pushing ahead with a state-of-the-game report that tackles their concerns about the sport's health down to grassroots level.

The Australian Cricketers' Association canvassed the views of Test players in Brisbane before the series against England began, and is continuing a series of state-by-state roadshows with former players, and is on track to hand its report to Cricket Australia before the end of this month, the report said.

It is understood that concern among players over a raft of issues, from the schedule to coaching and the strength of pathway competitions, runs so deep that they have discussed offering to sacrifice a portion of money from the player-payment pool to help fund some of the solutions proposed in their report, provided they meet certain criteria, the report added.
