Colly in pay row dispute
England - Paul Collingwood and his England team are angry and frustrated over a pay row that has lasted seven months, according to a report in The Sun.
They fly to the Caribbean on Sunday for the ICC World Twenty20 refusing to sign deals offered in September.
Now instead of negotiating annually they want to nail contracts taking them through to the Ashes summer of 2013.
One stumbling block is that some lesser-paid England stars receive no more than the top earners in county cricket.
It is becoming common for rich counties to pay £150k-plus per summer, which compares favourably with England cricketers in the lowest Band C category.
B and C players are those who play only one form of the game or have a lower profile such as Graham Onions or Ian Bell.
England have 11 men on 12-month deals and seven on incremental contracts.
The players also want to ensure those who miss tours to rest, such as Andrew Strauss and James Anderson in Bangladesh recently, do not suffer financially.
Last year deals were signed several months late as players wanted a window to feature in the IPL.
Now they want to put in place a framework for contracts for the next three or four years.
