Australian cricketers have made little effort to ensure that their displeasure with Cricket Australia is known to the public. Earlier, pacer Mitchell Starc had posted an image on his Instagram account in which he plays golf and talks about it as a viable career option.
Vice-captain David Warner is the latest to put his feelings out in the open. “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” said Warner in the caption of an image of himself and his wife.
Australian cricket has been fractured with talks between the Australian Cricketer’s Association and Cricket Australia reaching an impasse. This has led to more than 200 Australian crickets being unemployed due their contacts with Cricket Australia expiring. The episode has put a cloud over the Ashes that is to be played in November. Warner had said that CA may end up without a team to pick for the Ashes if the board does not take the Australian cricketers’ demands into consideration and refrain from introducing a new remuneration egime.
