All is not well between cricketers and administrators in a country where such ties have been decorous, seamless and regimented. Bad blood is brewing between Cricket Australia (CA) and top Aussie players, like national team captain Steven Smith and vice-­captain David Warner over players’ salary. A five-year-old MoU between the CA and the players expires next month, and CA chief James Sutherland has shot off an email to the players about a pay cut. So much so that Warner has told Sydney Morning Herald: “If it gets to the extreme they might not have a team for the Ashes (this summer).” Thi­ngs have not rea­ched such a head in India yet, but there are enough grumblings among pla­yers about the BCCI playing scrooge when it comes to share of revenues.
