The dispute between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers' Association over the next MoU, which defines the pay structures for players in the country, became a stand-off with nearly 230 cricketers out of a contract, and tours by Australian teams, including the Ashes, having come under a cloud. At the core of the dispute was CA's desire to break up the fixed revenue percentage model, which had been a part of all agreements with the ACA since 1998, an arrangement the players' body was keen to continue.
