Bangladesh tour depends on MoU: Smith

Bangladesh tour depends on MoU: Smith

Cricket Australia is on the verge of an agreement with the players' union to end the long impasse over a new pay deal and avoid the need for arbitration, local media reported on Monday.

Smith said he has been in regular contact with members of both parties' negotiating teams to act as a go-between, while continuing to pledge his support to the ACA and their commitment to maintaining the revenue share model of payment to players which remains central to the stalemate.

If all goes well, this will be the first time in 11 years that Australia will play a Test series in Bangladesh.

Sutherland said last week that his organisation would take the pay dispute to arbitration if a resolution was not found by this week. "I don't think it would be fair for us to go away after the (Australia) A guys were very strong on not going away on their tour, for us to then go away I don't think that's fair".

Tax-Free Holiday Weekend: What You Need to Know
According to the Ohio Dept. of Taxation, clothing is considered all human wearing apparel suitable for general use. The period begins at 12:01 a.m. on the first Friday in August, and ends at midnight on the Sunday following.

There had been a special interim deal in order to see the women through to the end of the World Cup, but with that now expiring there comes added urgency from all corners for a resolution to be reached as soon as possible for the benefit of all parties and the need for there to be no impediment on the preparations for the Ashes, which remain the jewel in the crown of the cricket world.

A CA official told on Wednesday that the negotiations with Australian Cricketers' Association has now moved to the "final details".

"I told Pat Howard personally this was how things were going to be", Smith noted on Fox Sports.

But Smith said a deal would have to be struck before Australia board the flight for Dhaka on August 18.

"And try and get this dispute solved as well as I can". The upcoming tour was originally supposed to have taken place in 2016, but Australia postponed that trip because of security concerns.

Players, having central contracts and state players without multi-year deals, were left unemployed after the deadline for a new MoU was not brokered by June 30.

More than 200 Australian cricketers, including Smith and David Warner, are now unemployed after the players rejected the CA's latest contract offer, with negotiations still taking place.

ACA had earlier rejected the new pay offer from the game's governing body, saying the proposal will be a win for cricket administrators but a loss for the game.

UBS Cuts Rating On MGM Resorts International (MGM)
The active investment managers in our partner's database now hold: 401.91 million shares, up from 401.64 million shares in 2016Q3. The company reported $0.31 earnings per share (EPS ) for the quarter, beating the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.28 by $0.03.

Under CA's proposal, only male global players would have the chance to share in any surplus revenue, while other domestic male players and women at both domestic and worldwide level would have to settle for fixed amounts which would not fluctuate according to the game's income.
