ACA player relations manager Simon Katich also just returned from a stint in India as both a commentator and consulting coach for the Test team.
The former Test opener said as part of the new pay proposal CA should look to cap administrative costs to ensure maximum revenue is channelled not only to the players, but to grassroots cricket too.
“Cricket is thriving and that’s a credit to all parties. But like any thriving business, administrative costs must be kept under control. Especially when there are far more pressing priorities,” Katich said.
