SYDNEY: Cricket Australia (CA) will not be announcing the fresh list of contracts in March as planned.

The board has postponed the announcement to the end of April given the financial uncertainty that looms due to the Covid-19 pandemic.The contracts, which run until June, normally get announced in April but the board had planned to do it in March this year, in order to give more clarity to the state associations. The Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) has agreed to the move.

“Given the uncertainty around what’s happening around the world at the moment, it makes sense to take a minute, take a breath and work out what we’re dealing with and what potential impacts it might have for the game moving forward,” Lanning, the women’s captain, told the reporters on Monday.

“We’ve been communicating really well with Cricket Australia and the ACA, working together with them... At the moment, it’s about waiting a little while for everyone to get the relevant information and is ready to move forward with that.”The pandemic hasn’t hit Australia’s home season as hard as say India’s, the latter in the middle of a crisis to find viable dates for the Indian Premier League 2020. —
