Full coverage of the pay dispute between CA and the ACA

ESPNcricinfo staff

The dispute between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers' Association over the next MoU, which defines the pay structures for players in the country, became a stand-off with nearly 230 cricketers out of a contract, and tours by Australian teams, including the Ashes, having come under a cloud. At the core of the dispute was CA's desire to break up the fixed revenue percentage model, which had been a part of all agreements with the ACA since 1998, an arrangement the players' body was keen to continue.
