No strike plan by Australian players despite pay deal dispute
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Melbourne, June 3: The continuing stalemate over a pay dispute notwithstanding, Australian cricketers have no plans of going on strike.
Amid speculation that they might boycott the tour of England scheduled to be held from June 29-July 10 or the World Twenty20 at Sri Lanka in September-October, a senior Australian cricketer has said there is no talk of strike at the moment.
"It won't be happening," an unnamed senior player was quoted as saying by 'The Daily Telegraph'.
Australian Cricketers Association chief executive Paul Marsh also said that strike would be a last resort.
"Our absolute priority and desire is to negotiate a resolution that works for both parties," he said.
"But it takes two to tango and we're still a long way apart ... and there is a strong resolve among the player group. It's in everyone's interests that we keep working at it."
The players will leave for England on June 14 to play six one-day internationals - one against Ireland and five against England, the last three of which will be after the current deal expires.
