Steve Smith and Meg Lanning have endorsed their union's resolute stand in cricket's pay dispute in an apparent bid to head off any divide-and-conquer campaign from Cricket Australia.
The national captains have joined their teammates in standing firm with the Australian Cricketers' Association in its rancorous and long-running pay dispute with the sport's governing body.
"The playing group are fully supportive of the ACA," Smith tweeted on Friday after the ACA announced it remained opposed to CA's offer.
