Pay Dispute Between Sri Lanka Cricket, Players Ends After New Deal

A pay dispute between Sri Lanka Cricket and its 23 centrally contracted players has ended "after players signed new contracts ahead of this weekend's Test match against Bangladesh," according to REUTERS. SLC and Sri Lankan Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage had warned the players they "faced being dropped from the national team if they did not sign new deals" by Tuesday. SLC officials said that the players were demanding a pay of 75% of the board's total earnings, while a senior cricketer said that they were "merely opposing SLC's move to cut their terms" (REUTERS, 3/4).
