Mitchell Starc, the left-arm paceman, says Australian players remain unwavering in their stance over the pay dispute with Cricket Australia (CA) ahead of the Champions Trophy.
Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) chief executive, met with the Australian squad on Sunday (May 28) in Birmingham to update them on the current situation, which has engulfed Australian cricket and created much uncertainty once the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) expires on June 30.
Starc, who has been forthright in his views on social media, was unsure whether a deal could be struck before June 30. “They have four weeks to go on the MoU and the players are leaving it to the ACA to sort it out for our side of things,” he said. “He (Nicholson) just told us where things are going to at the moment and we’ll stick with everything else in-house.
“I guess we’ll find out (whether or not there will a resolution) in four weeks’ time,” he added.
