Looks like a well balanced squad...

Would have liked to see Jaydev Unadkat in the "Test" side...

Now the Australia A players PULL OUT due to PAY DISPUTE with their board...

If this was happening in India you can bet the likes of cricinfo would be blasting BCCI but they are MUTE here...

True. What is surprising is that Indian writers also play ball with Cricinfo.

In any case, pay dispute in Australian set up is surprising. They call themselves first world after all.

The David Warners and Steve Smiths can take on Cricket Australia on the back of the FAT pay packages they have gotten from IPL...

They know that even if CA doesn't immediately play ball...they eventually will have to...

Kerry Packer was the first to pay INTERNATIONAL level cricketers more than minimal wages... but the pay really started rising with the money Dalmiya and BCCI brought into the international game...

In John Wright's book, he talks about retiring from FC cricket and taking a job at the NZ equivalent of Home Depot...with his colleagues kids who were high school grads or at the most have done a bit of community college...

The pay also was commensurate... i.e. just a step or two above minimum wage

Apparently Afghanistan A has been roped in to play instead of Australia A. Well it is to the benefit of all, especially the Afghanis...and to the LOSS of Australia...whose board are acting like petty and greedy dictators...
