In February 2012, the CA chief executive James Sutherland pointed out that Australia’s players would have been paid the same amount if they had lost 4-0 at home to India, rather than winning by the same margin as they did. “No one likes change but we’re really confident we’ve got a proposition that’s in the interests of the Australian players and the players who do the work and win the games,” he said. “Players get paid the same amount if we win four-nil against India or we lose four-nil. Does that make sense to all of us?”

Are you aware if other sports teams have performance based contracts? Personally, it makes a lot of sense and should be the way to go. I think this move by Australian Cricket Board will be revolutionary.
