Australia to send full-strength team for ICC Trophy
St John's (Antigua): The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is expected to meet with national squad players to discuss the disputed contracts for the ICC Champions Trophy in Sri Lanka. This follows the announcement that the Australia Cricket Board (ACB) had reached agreement with the Australia Cricketers Association (ACA) over the ICC's disputed 'ambush marketing' clause that bars players from endorsing products conflicting with those of ICC sponsors 30 days either side of an event."The ICC had worked with the ACB and ACA to develop a new agreement, a copy of which has been sent to cricket boards around the world including ours," said Gregory Shillingford, chief executive officer of the WICB, in a statement released by the West Indies Board on Thursday. "We are studying the document to see how we can adapt it to our circumstances and are delighted a breakthrough has been achieved. We are optimistic that our players will follow the direction of the ACA."
