Bangladesh Live News | @banglalivenews | 22 Oct 2019

Dhaka: Nazmul Hassan, president of Bangladesh Cricket Board, described the ongoing strike by key cricketers of the national side as a part of a conspiracy to destabilise cricket in the country.

At a news briefing in Dhaka on Tuesday, the BCB chief slammed the striking players for going on strike without informing the authorities about their demands beforehand, reported bdnews24.


The cricketers’ demands are baseless as the BCB is already working to resolve the issues, he told the newsportal.


Demanding pay hike, the cricketers went on a strike on Monday.


Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and other top cricketers are part of the incident.


The development comes a month after the BCB decided to abandon the Bangladesh Premier League franchise-based model, resulting in the fall of the income of the cricketers, reported bdnews24.


Their 11-point demand includes immediate resignations of president and general secretary of Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh, reversing the BCB’s decision to abandon the franchise-based model and lifting the salary cap in the Dhaka Premier League, reported the newsportal.
