Cricket Australia Statement on MOU Negotiations

Cricket Australia (CA) notes the Australian Cricketers’ Association advice that players are unavailable to tour South Africa in the absence of a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

Australia A is a development tour which gives players an opportunity to perform at a high level. It is therefore surprising that players would elect not to tour, however CA has never, and would never attempt to force anyone to play for an Australian team who is unwilling to do so.

CA remains ready to negotiate a new MOU and has again called on the ACA to show genuine flexibility and commence negotiations in the best interests of the players and the game.
