Between the discussion between Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and national players, the Cricketers have agreed to tour without being hired in England. This is due to the fact that the governing body ordered players to return to Sri Lanka after the English tour to make the assessment marks public. Cricketers were showing resistance to contracts because they felt a lack of transparency and did not compensate older players properly.
“This is the transparency that players demanded from the start,” ESPNcricinfo player lawyer Nishan Premathiratne said.
“They will play this tour without signing any contract. They have signed a voluntary declaration, but there is nothing about the players’ remuneration. They have always been committed to playing in Sri Lanka,” he added.
According to a report on ESPNcricinfo, performance and fitness are the two main criteria that make up 70 percent of a player’s overall mark, according to the proposed new scheme. And 10 percent each to achieve leadership, professionalism, and future potential or adaptability.
Earlier, thirty-eight cricketers from Sri Lanka signed a document refusing to sign tour contracts and this is an increase for the 24 players who previously resisted the new scheme.
Sri Lanka will travel to England on Tuesday evening starting on June 23 to play three T20I and three ODI.
