Unemployed Australian cricketers will meet on Sunday in the aftermath of the ugly scene between the cricketing association Cricket Australia (CA) and the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) in order for a new deal between the two. The contract that existed between the two expired on the 30th of June at midnight, following which the likes of David Warner and Steve Smith are currently unemployed.
In addition to the captain and the vice, there are also 230 other cricketers, who are officially unemployed, thanks to the deal. There are only 70 other cricketers, who remain in the line of the contract, while the Southern Stars will be paid for the Women’s Cricket World Cup.
CA confirmed a new deal was not forthcoming before the deadline. “This may place significant financial and emotional strain on them (players) and their families,” CA said in a statement on Friday afternoon. “It is unfortunate that the ACA’s hardline and inflexible position has not been conducive to delivering any positive outcomes or certainty for players.”
Steve Smith and David Warner:
Following this, Australian skipper Steve Smith had taken to Instagram to upload the video of him practising baseball. Fans on social media took this opportunity to say that Smith has already started looking at Baseball as the alternative for cricket, with the expiry of his deal.
Just like his skipper, vice captain David Warner took the same platform, to express his disappointment while posting a photo of him and his wife.
The caption of the picture read “I may be unemployed but I still have the support and backing from this amazing lady. Family is everything to me. I thought the same about my old workplace but I guess I was wrong. #thebull #fairshare.”
