Darren Lehmann says Ashes strike won't happen

Darren Lehmann says Ashes strike won't happen

Lehmann spoke as he prepared to depart for England for the ICC Champions Trophy tournament, which will bring Australian cricket's leading male players together for the first time since the pay dispute escalated.

"He is (in good spirits)". Both sides have their side, but just getting together and actually working it out is the way to go, as we know.

"It always traditionally stays quite late in the negotiations".

"Most of all, he stressed the importance of the two parties re-opening effective, respectful communication to get a deal done", he added. I'm literally talking to both players and CA.

"The ACA clearly wants to resolve a new MOU before June 30, and given the differences in both parties, mediation seems the right step".

Asked whether the involvement of Australia's top-line Test players in this summer's home Ashes series was at risk, as has been canvassed in the past week, Lehmann - who was closely involved when Australia players last contemplated the prospect of strike action in 1997 - claimed it was highly unlikely. "We've had discussions - I mean he's an excitement machine, so we hope he pulls up well with his injuries and plays some cricket for us", said Lehmann, as reported by cricket.com.au.

Texas Lawmakers Pass Statewide Ride-Hailing Regulations
Greg Abbott confirmed in a Twitter message Wednesday night his intention to sign the bill, which would become law June 1. According to Lyft spokeswoman Chelsea Harrison, the Senate passage was a success for all ridesharing companies.

“Im sure that wont happen.

"Unfortunately, however, the players and CA still appear to be a long way apart in the current negotiations, especially given CA are now refusing mediation". But, at the end of the day, we concentrate on the cricket, we're there to do a job and play as well as we possibly can.

"He's really looking forward to getting the lads back together".

Relations sunk further when a scheduled meeting on Wednesday (May 17) between the sparring parties didn't happen after a letter from CA chairman David Peever told the ACA its approach was "the fundamental reason why no progress has been made".

CA wants to move away from the revenue-sharing model that has served the game for the past 20 years, a stance that has thrown players into an open revolt that has included the threat of a boycott. The players, through the Australian Cricketers Association, view things rather differently: not surprisingly they see themselves not as subservient but as central to the growth of the game.

In March, CA made an offer, proposing that the average pay of Australia's global women's players would rise from $A79,000 to $A179,000, while the average remuneration of state cricketers would more than double to $A52,000.
