CA rejects appeal

Sydney : The complains of players regarding the tight schedule between the Twenty20 tournaments and test matches has been discarded by Cricket Australia , following terms and conditions mentioned in the lucrative contracts signed by the players for the Indian Premiere league.

Sources say that Australian batsman Mike Hussey's request not to play in the Champion's League in order to prepare himself for the upcoming
series against India was turned down by Cricket Australia and he was being instructed to play for Chennai Super Kings.

Although its quite evident that CA has forced its players to participate in the Champions League because of the 25 percent stake that it holds
for the six million dollar tournament.

But the board stated on Saturday that the clause to participate in the tournament was already there in the IPL contracts that the players signed and it was helpless to prevent the respective franchises to ask
the players to play in the tournament.

“The players who choose to sign IPL contracts do so presumably on the basis of eyes wide open. Those contracts are nothing to do with us. It
is a condition of those contracts that players stay until the end," CA spokesman Peter Young told The Sun-Herald.
