Pay dispute will distract Australia at Champions Trophy: Lehmann
Matthew Wade David Warner and Steve Smith all want to keep the present pay model

The breakdown in negotiations has raised fears of a possible players' strike for the Ashes starting in November, a hugely anticipated test series against England and a big contributor to CA's coffers. We had that last time and obviously the time before that and the time before that.
Warner said if Cricket Australia ceased paying players after June 30 and refused to consider short-term contracts which would allow players to be paid until a new agreement is reached, players might be forced to continue their careers overseas.
Cricket Australia (CA) has rejected a request from the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) for mediation over proposed remuneration changes.
CA wants to shake up the funding flow and move away from a percentage-of-revenue model that has served the game for 20 years.
Cricket Australia are seeking to replace existing revenue-sharing deals with new contracts.
"I think both parties have just got to get talking".
Both the ACA and CA declined to comment further on the pay dispute when contacted by Reuters.
"The ACA clearly want to resolve a new MOU [memorandum of understanding] before June 30, and given the differences in both parties, mediation seems the right step".
CA chairman David Peever says it's extraordinary the Australian Cricketers' Association wants mediation before negotiations begin on the governing body's latest offer.
However, the ACA pointed out a series of concerns with the proposal, saying that it "disrespects the value of domestic cricketers and the role they play in Australian cricket".
Sutherland said Cricket Australia "is not contemplating alternative contracting arrangements to pay players beyond 30 June if their contracts have expired".
Captain Steve Smith will join the squad after leading the Rising Pune Supergiants to Indian Premier League final and Lehmann said that he maintained constant contact with the 27-year-old.
Spearhead Mitchell Starc hinted last weekend at the prospect of this summer's Ashes being staged without the country's top players, while Warner noted the players "won't buckle at all" and "if it gets to the extreme they might not have a team for the Ashes". Domestic male and female players would be paid fixed amounts that would not fluctuate according to income (which was estimated by CA at A$333m a year ago, of which A$66m went to the players).
Im sure that wont happen.
And the seamer, who was encouraged by England bosses to go to the IPL and miss the recent series against Ireland, says England will always take precedence over Twenty20 offers.
