Dhaka: Faced with the threat of legal action from the Federation of International Cricketers Association (Fica), Bangladesh Cricket Board president Mustafa Kamal said that payments of all the players who participated in the Bangladesh Premier League will be cleared.
After Fica CEO Tim May threatened to initiate legal action against the BCB and BPL franchises for failing to make full payments to players, Kamal said money would be given and there have been no complaints so far.
May did call the BCB “amateurish” and questioned the “integrity of people involved in the leadership of Bangladesh cricket”. Kamal said the comments were uncalled for.
“The statement is unfortunate. I have said repeatedly that it is BCB’s obligation that if any player is unpaid, the board will make the payments. I am reassuring that not a single player will go unpaid,” said Kamal.
