The Australian cricket team toured England and Ireland in June and July 2012. Australia played a One Day International (ODI) against Ireland on 23 June,[1] and a five-match ODI series against England from 29 June to 10 July.[2] They also played two List A tour matches against English county sides Leicestershire Foxes and Essex Eagles.[2] The tour was put in jeopardy at the start of June 2012, when industrial action was threatened by the Australian Cricketers' Association because of a dispute over the inclusion of performance-related pay in the contract between the players and Cricket Australia.[3]
