Australia pay dispute a distraction – Lehmann

Australia coach Darren Lehmann

Australia coach Darren Lehmann says the ongoing dispute over players’ pay will not threaten November’s Ashes series, but admits it will be a “distraction” during the Champions Trophy in June.

Cricket Australia (CA) has proposed to increase pay for men and women but end benefits from a revenue-sharing scheme.

The offer was rejected, and CA said it would not pay players after 30 June.
