Shakib-Tamim will get more salary than foreign cricketers: BCB

CRICDOT DESK : In the past editions of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), foreign cricketers have been paid more than local cricketers. However, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hasan Papon has suggested that national team stars should be paid a satisfactory fee like foreigners in the upcoming BPL.

“When we first talk about the BPL, I personally raised the issue that our cricketers, especially those in the draft, should not be so different from foreign cricketers,” the BCB president told reporters at a hotel in the capital on Monday. Our cricketers should be paid a fair wage.

BCB has been working for the probable start of BPL on January 20. The last day to submit expressions of interest was Sunday. Franchise ownership has not yet been confirmed.

However, 6 franchise teams have expressed interest in getting BPL this time. In this regard, the BCB president said, “I found out today that 6 franchises have expressed interest.” Now we will see, we will know about them then we will decide.
