Batted sensibly.

Apparently this is a better deck than the last two. It looks worse than it is. Although I hope it turns to **** at about tea tomorrow

Good to see I was wrong and honestly I was about to put my hand up anyway without you posting.

In other news, great figures from Pattinson in a shield game against Queensland today. 5 for about 6.

We survived. That was lucky. What a turn around from the 1st day and a bit. We need to re-group but it will be hard with all the overs that the bowlers had to bowl. Let's just hope that we win the toss and bat in the final test.




Whilst India may claim the day with how they have recovered after Australia was 1 for 144 at one stage, I still think a score around 300 puts us in good stead heading into India's first innings.




So close yet so far.

Got closer than we all thought, but we have been about one batter short.

Just very quickly on cricket and the pay dispute, I think CA should hold out as the players aren't going to get any better when the reduced tv rights deal comes through for the next one.

We also really need them to take less that what they are demanding as it may force CA's hand to consider more favourably than what it was going to the pay tv offer to cover the Australian international season with a fta provider.

It's just not cricket..............................................................without the players.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-30/australian-cricket-pay-deal-mou-expires/8666232

Australia's elite cricketers will be officially unemployed tomorrow after a breakdown in talks to secure a new pay deal.

Cricket Australia (CA) has acknowledged there will be no agreement before the current deal expires at midnight, meaning almost 230 cricketers will be out of contract.

With the exception of 70 domestic male cricketers, Australia's domestic players both men and women are off contract as of 12:01am July 1, though participants at the ongoing Women's World Cup in the United Kingdom will be paid for the duration of the tournament.

It was hoped CA chief executive James Sutherland's return from England could break the impasse between the two bodies, with high-performance manager Pat Howard and negotiator Kevin Roberts having led CA's talks with the players' association.

The sport's governing body said the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) had refused to "show genuine flexibility in the best interests of the players and the game" during the lengthy negotiations.

"CA has been disappointed by the ACA's unwillingness to consider the sensible and necessary change CA has proposed to the fixed share of revenue player payments model.

"The model was adopted 20 years ago to address the underpayment of players. The game has changed fundamentally since then: players are now justifiably well rewarded and the modern challenge is the chronic under-funding of the grassroots of the game, particularly junior cricket.

"CA believes this challenge can be met while still rewarding players very well for their undoubted contribution.

"CA and the State and Territory Associations are responsible for the health of the whole game, not just the elite level where more than 70 per cent of all CA funding is currently directed."

One of the biggest stars of Australia's national side, Josh Hazlewood, appeared in a video on the ACA website on deadline day.

He said it was "hugely important" to the players that more money be filtered through to state players and female players and said they had the right to feel disrespected by CA.

"They always seem to point out the no crowds at Sheffield Shield cricket, but they always leave out the Big Bash that draws in massive crowds every game and the Australian cricket team aren't a part of that," he said.
"That's solely domestic players with a couple of internationals in different teams. But they provide a great spectacle and that six weeks is just thriving with crowds and attendance.

"So yeah, I think they would feel disrespected, definitely."

Of the 70 domestic male players still on multi-year contracts, they will have to choose to strike to retain solidarity with their locked-out colleagues.

If currently uncontracted players want to train, they will not be prevented from accessing the Australian cricket training facilities and staff.

The ACA said the players were expected to turn up, unpaid, on Monday as an act of "incredibly good faith".

The players' association now has an executive meeting in Sydney on Sunday, where it will discuss player availability for the Australia A tour of South Africa.

Australia's cricketers also face up to the prospect of being unable to play in ICC-sanctioned, money-making events like the Indian Premier League, lest they face an Ashes series ban.

The potential for exhibition matches has been discussed among players, with the option of taking part in global Twenty20 events also on the cards.

But Howard sent an email on Thursday to the ACA which said bans would be enforced for those taking part in "disapproved cricket", adding that players could not take part in ICC approved events, like the Indian Premier League, without CA approval.

"Players (including uncontracted players) cannot play in ICC approved cricket (e.g. domestic T20 competitions operated by overseas cricket boards) without approval from Cricket Australia," Howard wrote in the email.

"Players who participate in disapproved cricket (e.g. exhibition matches) are not permitted to participate in ICC approved cricket for a minimum of six months thereafter."

With the Ashes due to start in November, any ban would rule that player out of the series.

Players were also told any delay in reaching an memorandum of understanding (MOU) agreement from July 14 would mean they would not get back pay for the elapsed period.

"If your contract expires on June 30, you will not be an employee of CA, a State Association or a WBBL team from July 1," Howard wrote.

"This means that you are not required to play, train, perform player appearances or media commitments, and you will not be paid a retainer until such time as a MOU is agreed and a player contract is agreed with you in writing.
"If a MOU is agreed on or by July 14, your playing contract would only commence from the date the MOU is agreed. CA does not intend that retainers would be back paid to cover any elapsed period between your current contract expiring and the execution of a new contract when a new MOU is agreed."

The ACA has set up a hardship fund to support players in financial need all except international men covering all female players and male state-based players.

It is a bit disingenuous when certain players come out and make comment about their situation that they are unemployed now etc (Warner for example) when they are still getting paid from all these other sources (sponsorship, county teams and IPL). It doesn't really help their cause when other players on the fringe of Australian selection, state players and women players don't have this alternative revenue stream to supplement their income.
