Post by bayman on Tue Apr 25, 2017 11:44 am

Stanlake, Agar and Cartwright big winners in proposed offers awaiting MOU confirmation
Cricket Australia has today announced 33 male and female players as its centrally contracted players for 2017-18. Twenty men and 13 women have been offered contracts by CA, which are intended to come in to effect on 1 July this year. Towering Queensland quick Billy Stanlake and Western Australia allrounders Ashton Agar and Hilton Cartwight have been offered contracts for the first time. Tasmania allrounder James Faulkner, NSW wicketkeeper Peter Nevill, WA batsman Shaun Marsh and Victoria fast bowler Peter Siddle were not offered contracts.

 CA male contract offers for 2017-18: Ashton Agar, Jackson Bird, Hilton Cartwright, Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, Peter Handscomb, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, James Pattinson, Matthew Renshaw, Steve Smith, Billy Stanlake, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.

CA female contract offers for 2017-18: Kristen Beams, Alex Blackwell, Nicole Bolton, Lauren Cheatle, Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy, Jess Jonassen, Meg Lanning, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Elyse Villani, Amanda-Jade Wellington.

Faulkner has to be the biggest surprise & M. Marsh keeping one is almost as big a surprise to me

Agree on M Marsh.
He has done so little with the ball and even less with the bat.

How they work this out is beyond me.

O'Keefe plays in the Indian tests but can't get a gig.
Nevill is a bit stiff too imo. Wade has been ok, but is getting on and his test batting is average.

No idea how M Marsh kept his contract. Surely there is a limit on how long people can be picked for "potential".
Thought Agar and Cartwright were both very lucky to be offered contracts, cant see either being a regular Australian representative in any form of the game in the next 12 months.

Neville is very stiff to miss out, I remain totally unconvinced by Wade. Neither his keeping or batting is more then usual Sheffield Shield level.

What is your take on the Cricket Australia v ACA impasse?

Are we going to see cricket this summer?

I read today that the ACA is taking steps to set up a legal entity to hold the players' IP in their images, voices and videos. Once their contracts expire with CA, it will not be able to use the players in any promotional material without their consent.

It sounds like the complexity in the contract dispute is increasing rather than being resolved.

Will be interesting to see if any olive branches are offered by either side before the June 30 deadline.

Agree Chambo, they seem further away from an agreement then ever. Surely one side will have to make a move.

Maybe Sayers might finally get a cap!
Or they might pluck a bowler from Sydney's Bankstown D grade instead.
