Shane Watson has been appointed president of the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) at the body's annual general meeting, and will now head the extended ten-member board, which includes three other new appointments: current players Pat Cummins and Kristen Beams and former player Lisa Sthalekar. After being appointed as the President of the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA), former Australia all-rounder Shane Watson said that he is honored to be elected at the post and it would give him an opportunity to continue to give back to the game. Watson had represented Australia in 59 Tests, 190 ODIs and 58 T20Is and has performed consistently for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. The new structure also splits the role of president and chairman, with the latter continuing to be held by former Australia wicketkeeper Greg Dyer. A number of prominent cricketers are elected directors: apart from Beams and Cummins, they are Aaron Finch, Alyssa Healy, and Moises Henriques. The appointed directors are Sthalekar, Neil Maxwell and Janet Torney, whose work has primarily been in the fields of economics, investment and corporate governance.
Cricket Australia has launched a parental leave policy, which guarantees players who become pregnant 12 months of paid leave along with three weeks for partners and other support including additional funding for tours. Cricket Australia unveiled a “game-changing” parental leave scheme designed to let players in its history-making women’s team remain in the game while raising a family. Cricket Australia said it had been working on the policy with players and the Australian Cricketers Association for three years. Under the scheme, women cricketers who are pregnant can transfer to a non-playing role until they give birth and they can return at any time after having a child, subject to medical clearance. A key figure in bringing the policy together was former Australia player Clea Smith who is now general manager of member programs at the ACA. While primarily aimed at female players, the policy also includes provisions that will be available to men, including three weeks’ paid parental leave.
