    导出博客文章James Sutherland, the Cricket Australia chief executive, has stated that
    pregnancy policies around the nations women cricketers will be addressed in the
    current round of MOU negotiations with the Australian Cricketers Association,
    though he asserted his comfort with a system that presently requires players to
    declare their maternal status when signing a contract.Australias Sex
    Discrimination Act states that it is unlawful to ask a potential employee if
    they are pregnant, yet women signing to play in CA competitions are asked to
    state whether or not they are, in one of the clauses of their standard
    contracts. Both Sutherland and the team performance manager Pat Howard stated
    this was purely a health and safety measure.However Sutherland, when pressed on
    the issue during an interview on ABC Radio, said that CA would work with the ACA
    to ensure the terms and conditions for female cricketers would be reviewed
    during the present round of talks to ensure the next agreement was in line with
    best practice for female athletes. It has been suggested - in keeping with the
    health and safety element - that women be permitted to declare whether they are
    pregnant or not to the relevant CA or state medical officer without the need for
    a clause in the contract itself, thus maintaining doctor-patient
    confidentiality.The critical thing here is that its a health and safety issue,
    Sutherland said. So its understood that a woman can declare herself pregnant,
    but the extension of that is we know they have taken medical advice, so if they
    continue to play then everyones aware and we can secure their safety.That doesnt
    mean the woman cannot sign the contract. We need them to declare that they can
    continue to play, adhering to medical advice. All were saying is they need to
    say they are, so that everyone understands. They can take their own advice on
    continuing to play from a medical professional, but also so that our medical
    staff are aware so we can support them in that situation. Thats the intention -
    its not to stop a pregnant woman from playing.There are different stages of
    pregnancy, its a matter of disclosure and understanding and then working with
    the individual to make choices along the way and being offered that support. We
    havent had someone say theyre pregnant at the time of signing. We have had
    someone fall pregnant in their contract period, and they decided at a certain
    point that they wouldnt continue to play, and we paid out their contract for the
    remainder of the period.Sutherlands 15-year-old daughter, Annabel, is a
    contracted player with Melbourne Renegades, and he stated he was comfortable
    with her operating under these regulations. Yes, because what is important here
    is health and safety, he said, and if she was carrying a baby, the health and
    safety of that baby.Quite apart from pregnancy policy, Australias female
    cricketers are presently not eligible for the sort of paid maternity leave
    mandatory even for CAs own employees. Issues have also been raised around
    players relocating from their home states for the Womens Big Bash League.
    Sutherland conceded that gender equity in cricket was still some way from being
    fully realised. I think across the board from grassroots up, I dont think gender
    equity is there in cricket, he said. Thats something that as an administration
    body, as administrators, we are determined to chase in the states and
    territories. We want there to be equal opportunity for girls to play our sport
    as there is for boys.But this is to some extent pioneering stuff. Its not easy.
    There are challenges, because clubs and organisations are set up to play cricket
    on a certain amount of ovals. Were needing to find places for girls to play and
    getting to find volunteers and resources around girls teams to allow them to
    have a great experience playing cricket. Its not that easy, were determined to
    make sure it changes.We had great success with clubs and organisations, with the
    increased funding for girls to basically increase the number of girls teams
    playing across the country. A number of new organisations and competitions have
    started up this year. Were thrilled with that response, but in some ways thats
    affirmative action to change the landscape and create the opportunities that
    werent previously there.Negotiations with the ACA continue.

    rotation continues to take shape. A day after taking a chance on the
    inexperienced Dwight Buycks, Toronto has reached an agreement with veteran point
    guard D.J. Augustin, inking him to a one-year, $1.26 million deal according to
    Yahoo Sports. Augustin, 25, is coming off a rough year with the Pacers after
    spending his first four NBA seasons as a member of the Charlotte Bobcats. In
    just 16 minutes per game, Augustin averaged a career-low 4.7 points and 2.2
    assists, shooting just 35 per cent from the field while appearing in 76
    regular-season games and 19 playoff contests for the Pacers in 2012-13. The
    former Texas Longhorns guard was drafted ninth overall by the Bobcats in 2008.
    He scored a career-best 14.4 points to go along with 6.1 assists for Charlotte
    in 2010-11 before a series of knee injuries slowed him the following season.
    Augustin signed with Indiana as a free agent last summer. Augustin figures to
    become the primary back up to starting point guard Kyle Lowry, although the
    newly signed Buycks will also be in the mix for playing time at the position. A
    low-risk signing, the hope is that Augustin can bounce back following a poor
    season and rediscover the success he experienced as a starter in Charlotte. A
    career 37 per cent three-point shooter, Augustin addresses a need for the
    Raptors and could provide a much-needed offensive spark off the bench while
    complementing the less experienced Buycks. Toronto was able to free up space
    under the salarry cap after using the amnesty provision on Linas Kleiza Tuesday
    evening.dddddddddddd By avoiding the NBAs luxury tax, and the steep financial
    penalties that go with it, the Raptors can now use a portion of their mid-level
    exception to sign Augustin, if they so choose. The non-taxpayer mid level is
    valued at $5.15 million, up from the $3.18 million exception for taxpaying
    teams, however most of that has already been allocated towards the contract of
    another former Pacer, Tyler Hansbrough. Cambys homecoming is cut short The
    Raptors also came to terms on a buyout agreement with veteran centre Marcus
    Camby who was placed on waivers, the team announced Wednesday. Camby, 39, was
    originally drafted by Toronto with the second overall pick in 1996 but expressed
    his reluctance on returning to the Raptors after being acquired from the Knicks
    last week. Camby was a part of the deal that netted the Raptors Steve Novak,
    Quentin Richardson and three draft picks in exchange for Andrea Bargnani. The
    17-year vet was due to make $3.38 million this coming season and $4.18 million
    in 2014-15, although the second year was not fully guaranteed. Details of the
    buyout are not known but the agreement should allow the team to utilize the
    veterans minimum (roughly $1.35 million) on another player, if they choose to do
    so. The Raptors roster would stand at 14 following the signing of Augustin. That
    includes the contract of Richardson, whose status with the team remains
    uncertain at this time. ' ' '
