The ACA had asserted last month in a meeting that none of the nation's 300 professional cricketers would make themselves available to for matches organised by the CA until a new MoU fulfilling the demands of the players is agreed.

While the new deal has not yet been signed off, chief executive of the ACA Alistair Nicholson suggested there will be no further problems in finalising the contract.

The bone of contention between the association and the players was the revenue sharing model, which, as per the former, was outdated and according to the latter, was important for the growth of cricket in Australia.

The major reason behind the ACA 's opposition was CA's proposal to scrap a shared revenue model for player payments, which had been in place for almost 20 years. A temporary MoU was signed between both parties in order for the Australia's women's team to play in the 2017 Women's World Cup.

They were offered an increased amount of surpluses to include men's and women's domestic players, as well as global players, but described the deal as unacceptable, which resulted in their contracts coming to an end at the start of July.

A resolution would give certainty not just to the Bangladesh trip, but a one-day tour to India in September and October ahead of the showpiece home Ashes series against England, beginning in November.

"Relationships with the game have been tested and I know that has been a bit of a turn-off for fans", added Sutherland.

"The revenue sharing model in which the players will share 30 percent of agreed revenue consisting of 27.5 percent of forecast revenue streams and a 2.5 percent performance pool".

Dhaka - Bangladesh breathed a sigh of relief on Thursday as Australia ended its protracted pay dispute with their cricket board, ensuring Steve Smith's side can visit later this month for a long-awaited tour. We are restoring certainty and beginning to fix relationships, especially with the fans.

He added: "The resolve is very strong in the playing group. Since Australia's next FTP (Future Tour Programme) was against Bangladesh, we are very happy and we are ready to welcome the Australian cricket team".

Sutherland's decision to take a largely hands-off approach during months of bitter negotiations left many players frustrated and is likely to have contributed to a loss of trust between the warring parties.
