After controversy and negotiations last month, players from the Federation of International Cricket Association (FICA) have claimed that their proposed remuneration is three times lower than what players in other countries pay. Sri Lanka is to tour England and the team will play three ODIs and several T20 internationals from June 18 to July 4. However, the players have made it clear that even if they do not sign the contract and SLC refuses to pay them, they will not refuse to play for the country at any time. The senior players were not happy that SLC had publicly disclosed the amount of their central contract.
