Melbourne:

Recruiting for Australia's revamped Twenty20 league can finally begin after the cricket board and the players union settled on terms and conditions for the 2011-2012 domestic summer.


The launch of the eight-team 'Big Bash' had been delayed because of negotiations between Cricket Australia and players over central and state contracts and minimum pay levels for international and domestic first-class players in all modes of the game.

Cricket Australia can now finalize its list of 25 centrally contracted players. From 2011-12, players can have two contracts: one for their state team and one with a Big Bash League club.

The players have retained their 26 percent share of Australian cricket revenue.

The 2011-12 Cricket Australia contracted players are:
