    Had information that this was a conspiracy to sabotage India tour: BCB chief on players' strike [44]

    Members of Bangladesh national team called for an unprecedented strike on Monday to press home their 11 demands, leaving next month's tour of India uncertain.

    ‘Unless our demands were met we will not get involved in any cricketing activities. It includes everything– the first-class cricket, national team preparation, international cricket,´ said national Test and Twenty20 captain Sakib al Hasan.

    Sakib said that only National Under-19 team, who play a series against their Sri Lankan counterparts from next week as part of their World Cup preparations, and other age-level team will out of their programme.

    Sakib, who was flanked by dozens of players including national stalwarts Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah among others, said the strike will be effective from today, which also left national team’s preparation for India tour uncertain.

    Bangladesh are scheduled to start their preparation for India tour on October 25.

    The Tigers will play three Twenty20 internationals and two Tests in India, with the series starting with first Twenty20 international on November 3 in Delhi.

    The demands of players include respect from Board, restoration of the previous pay structure in Dhaka Premier League, a promise for returning to franchise-based Bangladesh Premier League next season, at least Tk one lakh match fees for the National Cricket League, at least 30 players in National payroll and 50 per cent rise in the salary of first-class players.

    Currently the BCB, which has 18 nationally contracted players 79 first-class contracted players, pays Tk 35,000 as match fees for NCL.

    The BCB announced to drop the franchises from this year’s BPL and retain the ownership of all teams by itself, raising a fear among the players that they their payment could get reduced under the new format.

    ‘We know the BPL will be held in new rule, which respect, our demand is to restore the original format next year. We also want the wage of local players has to be compatible with foreign players, which we never have seen,’ said wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim.

    Players also demanded the resignation of the office bearers of Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh, respect for local groundsmen and coaches.

    ‘You see our groundsman. They work round the clock, but at the end of month get only Taka 5,000 to 6,000 ($58-$70). We don’t want to promote our own coaches. The money that our coaches get it is 20times less than that of a foreign coach,’ said opening batsman Tamim Iqbal.

    The Bangladesh Cricket Board said they will discuss the matter before making a decision.

    ‘The players are very important for us. In time to time, they demand many things and we always try to accommodate their demands,’ said BCB chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury.

    ‘As we have heard about this matter today, we will definitely discuss it in the board level to make a decision,’ he added.

    Sakib said that by calling the strike they want to ensure a good cricketing atmosphere for the next generation of players.

    ‘Once our demands will be met we will go back to our normal activities , because we all want the development of cricket... those who will come in future we want keep a good environment for them so that Bangladesh cricket move forward,’ he said.

    National players Mahumdullah, Naeem Islam, Anamul Haque, Enamul Haque Junior, Junaed Siddique among others spoke in the press conference.

    BCB is much more professional than PCB - for that the first difference you could have seen if you had the eyes -there is a players union and there is a functional collective bargaining agency. Conflict with board is not new in cricket or any other sports - if your knowledge had not been limited to trolling in BD Cricket thread you could have known that even boards like TCCB (ECB) or ACB (CA) has gone through these process several times including payment disputes and revenue sharing many times. The first example I can give in 1881 Ashes, when AUS had to put 11 new players as 25 of their top players declined to play for AUS on payment disputes & gate money share. At least, your level should know the Packer disputes I can expect. In North America, NFL, NBA or NHL season has been disrupted many times, but these are negotiations for the betterment of the game & players'/owners benefit.

    It'll be handled quite professionally - trust me...... much better that the way PCB recently appointed it's national coaching staff, "Selection Coordinator" and definitely not the way Steve Rixon left the job. Here the players are demanding something that will be negotiated on discussion table and BD tour will go as per schedule. You haven't noticed that players have excluded U19 teams from this move so that the WC preparation isn't hampered.

    I am not sure who calls BCB the most professional board - MUST BE AN IDIOT and a TROLL, otherwise even lack of knowledge doesn't make someone that fool. But, it's much more professional than PCB (as you compared with them), and it's quite different - the topics that are brought here for discussion like Cricketers Welfare Association, 96 centrally contracted FC cricketers, minimum pay scale for domestic cricket, pay scale for Groundsmen, local coaching staff of monthly wage basis at club/FC level ..... PCB has long, long way to reach even there.

    Bangladesh women’s cricket team players said they were yet to decide about joining their male counterparts in the boycott of all cricket activities and proceeded with their preparations for the imminent Pakistan tour.

    Bangladesh women’s team is scheduled to leave for Pakistan today to play three Twenty20 internationals and two one-day internationals.

    The series suffered an unexpected jolt on Monday when men’s cricketers announced a boycott of all cricketing activities to press home their 11-point demand.

    National Test and Twenty20 captain Sakib al Hasan said they could not inform the women cricketers beforehand due to time constraint but would welcome them should they decide to join.

    However, speaking to New Age, women’s Twenty20 cricket team skipper Salma Khatun said they were yet think about joining the boycott.

    ‘We just have heard about it and did not get enough time to discuss it among us. But at the moment it looks like we are going to Pakistan,’ she said.

    Fast bowler Jahanara Alam said they are not considering the matter at all.

    ‘We are packing our bag for Pakistan tour and not thinking about it,’ she said.

    The rise of payment for women’s cricketers is part of the demands of the boycotting players.

    I respect the players for this stand.

    Cricket exists because of players, not suit boot babus in a board. The rights of players and well being need to be insured.

    Bangladesh cricketers' strike unlikely to affect India tour


    MUMBAI: Regardless of the developments in Dhaka on Monday, when Bangladesh's international cricketers went on a strike against their cricket board stating a 11-point agenda, their tour of India starting November 3 and comprising three T20Is and two Test matches is most likely to go ahead.

    Well-placed sources told TOI that the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), which is formally waiting to hear from the cricketers, is hoping that matters will be resolved this week or early next week at best.

    Bangladesh announced their T20 squad for the India tour three days ago with all-rounder Shakib al Hasan being retained as skipper. Shakib, interestingly, is at the helm of the player revolt that gained pace on Monday.

    On top of that 11-point agenda are a hike in player payments, a revolt against the discontinuation of the franchise-based system in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), better compensations at the First Class level, open market transfers, revised central contracts and more.

    "Revolts usually tend to happen these days before an India tour. It's becoming a sort of a trend. And understandably, considering all stakeholders know what's at play when we're talking about boycotting an India tour," say sources tracking developments.

    Talking to reporters in Kolkata, BCCI's president-elect, Sourav Ganguly also said, "It is their internal matter, but they will sort out, they will come."

    For the record, the Australian cricketers too had threatened boycott early this year ahead of the India tour and "if we all remember it correctly, it was sorted out in no time. Revolts don't make sense when we're discussing a series with India," say industry sources.

    BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury told TOI: "I'm certain it will all be resolved very soon. Even we're trying to find out the all details and as soon as we have them, the board will be taking this up as top priority."

    Hardly a coincidence that players from WI, BD pipe up just prior to an India tour.

    Obvious tactic is obvious.

    FICA Comment on Player Solidarity in Bangladesh

    In relation to the media conference held by national and first class domestic cricketers in Bangladesh on Monday, FICA Executive Chairman, Tony Irish makes the following comment:

    “FICA commends the players in Bangladesh for their unity and for taking a stand together in order to secure fair conditions applicable to them as professional cricketers. This has happened despite the challenging environment for players to collectivize in Bangladesh and it is a clear indication of the need for change in the way players are treated in what we regard as an important cricket country."

    “It is also clear to us that the players in Bangladesh don’t feel heard or respected in relation to important issues that affect them in their careers and that affect their livelihoods. It is the role of a players’ association to be the voice, and collective representative, of the players, and it is a matter of concern to us that the Cricketers' Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB) does not appear to be fulfilling this role at a very critical time for the players. It is of further concern that it appears that office bearers of CWAB hold positions with the Bangladesh Cricket Board.”

    “Given the collective nature of the issues we believe that it’s important for FICA to offer its support and assistance to the players during this time.”

    Cricketers’ Welfare Association of Bangladesh and FICA Membership

    At FICA’s Annual Meeting held in London earlier this month the FICA board discussed and approved amendments to FICA’s Membership and Minimum Standards framework and it was resolved that the new framework should focus on ensuring that member players' associations are both genuinely representative of current players and clearly independent from relevant governing bodies.

    In a follow up to these changes, FICA intends to review CWAB’s current membership of FICA

    Bangladesh Cricketers Call Off Strike, India Tour To Go Ahead As Planned

    Bangladesh cricketers ended their strike late Wednesday after they said the authorities met most of their demands including a pay hike for domestic first class players. "The talk was successful," said Test and Twenty20 captain Shakib al Hasan who played a key role in the unprecedented revolt which started on Monday. "The BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board) president and directors, who were here, heard our demand and they assured us they will meet them at the quickest possible time," he said.

    The decision came as a relief for the BCB after the strike appeared set to jeopardise Bangladesh's lucrative tour of India where Bangladesh would play three T20I and two Test matches beginning early next month.

    "Based on their (BCB's) assurance our first-class players will start playing from Saturday and our national team players will join the camp (for India tour) from October 25," Shakib said.

    BCB president Nazmul Hassan said they would meet most of the demands of the players.

    "Apart from two demands, we have accepted all nine demands," Hassan said.

    Supreme Court lawyer Mustafizur Rahman Khan earlier read out a list of demands on behalf of the Bangladeshi cricketers at a news conference, which also included a "feasible" wage for female players.

    "Arrangements will have to be made where professional cricketers are given a fair share of the revenue generated by BCB, which, after all, is made possible through the toil and performance of professional cricketers," said Rahman, citing the example of Australia.

    Bangladesh national and first-class players announced the strike calling for better pay and benefits, raising doubt whether the country's tour of India would go ahead.

    Shakib, one of the world's finest all-rounders, led the rebellion with all the star players joining the protests.

    The strike follows increasing criticism from the players that the BCB, the nation's richest sports body, is not sharing its wealth.

    But in his first reaction after the strike, the BCB's president l Hassan called it a "conspiracy" unrelated to pay.

    The Federation of International Cricketers' Associations praised the players "for taking a stand together in order to secure fair conditions," the body's executive chairman Tony Irish said in a statement late on Tuesday.

    I donÂ’t brag about any such posts, but I expected you to come back here for your comments about how BCB handled this situation - but unfortunately you donÂ’t have the guts. You are the poster, who made it really salty for BD cricket after the 0-3 loss in SRL - when No. 8 team beat No. 7 team at home with the visitors missing few key players. But, I didnÂ’t see the same spirit from you a month later when the back up of that same SRL whitewashed the Ranked 1 team at their home with possible best XI playing - thatÂ’s double standard, isnÂ’t not appreciated in Pakpassion, for sure.

    Coming to the issue - no, itÂ’s never an ideal situation where two vital cogs of an institution (here BCB leadership & the players union) take an extreme stand against each other. But, thatÂ’s not the benchmark of professionalism - conflicts are not bad always, neither it reflects unprofessional manners/practices. As I have mentioned even NBA, NFL, MLB has suffered season lock-outs multiple times, itÂ’s part of the business. And, the disputes were resolved as well - both parties moved on from there on.

    Your understanding about professionalism is flawed, hence you shouldn't have posted in that tone - it hurts the feelings of some posters here, who also were anxiously waiting to see where it ends, and their stakes are much higher in BD cricket than you. Professionalism isnÂ’t shown by sub-pressing one party of the bargain (thatÂ’s autocracy), rather professionalism is expressed how a conflict is resolved by bringing both parties to a middle ground, at the earliest convenience and at the lowest intensity of collateral damage. There is some damage for sure, if not financially or cricket wise, but twisting relationship is the biggest damage - something your board is very good at and thatÂ’s one of the main reason why there is a big difference between PCB & BCB, if you could see that.....

    Did I like this strike - no, absolutely not; did I support the playersÂ’ cause unanimously - neither; but the players must have some valid grounds and this strike was probably the last resort to reach a stalemate. At the end, itÂ’s well managed by both parties that a resolution could be accepted within few days without bringing a 3rd party (here ICC or FICA) into the context and without increasing the damage further - thatÂ’s professionalism. I have to feel sorry for you, if in your professional world one group survives silently and everything looks calm.

    I didnÂ’t like your tone as the first post here because, the issue wasnÂ’t about the professionalism, ethics or standard operating process of BCB or players union; rather it was an outcome of a conflict - wise people tend to watch the proceedings till a consensus/conclusion is reached, then judge one or either party if necessary - trolls jump into show their intelligence, in a haste and brings people into nonproductive arguments/lengthy posts, wasting time. I was much more concerned for the development, because it was just the start of a busy season - everyday counts.

    @Varun - no, the tactics isnÂ’t obvious, in that case it would have continued for few more days. And, your conclusion is absolutely opposite - if your obvious was the case here, players wonÂ’t have made any move before Indian tour and IPL auction, remember the leader of the strike is an IPL regular for a decade now. I could have thought in that line had the tour been opposite - India coming to BD, cancellation of that would have cost BCB, But, here players would have been biggest losers, and those few players were the leaders of this movement, who could have been the biggest loser if it went wrong. At least sometimes try to be impartial in BD threads and try to see things with an open mind.

    I read that Nazmul was extremely angry with the players and openly talked about how he had done them favours and they still went on strike etc. What exactly is going on?

    I myself am not aware much, just waiting at the wings for details from my sources. What I understand that through some mediators (Mash is one), they have parked it for further discussion for the time being so that cricket doesn’t hamper. A technical committee accepted by both parties will work on the merits of demands & offers for further discussion.

    Papon is a gangster, often got everything as he wished, probably challenged for the first time this hard. Players must have some solid grounds, because they have put a lot on stake here - forget IPL or BPL, even to send names for PSL or Afghan league’s auction, players will need NOC from BCB; same for Dhaka League as well. Shakib might get away with by retiring from National team (& central contract), but not the others.

    I am sure we haven’t heard the end of it, but hope cricket won’t stop for that.

    I dont think other than Shakib or maybe Mustafiz many BD players are in demand. Forget IPL not even in PSL, BBL, Natwest or afghan league. I dont think so that should be a worry for BCB.

    I think, there are several BD players played in PSL in past - so far I can name at least 6 and more in CPL, so obviously there is demand. But, it doesn’t work that way - players have to keep their market open.

    My point is not about if there is opportunity (obviously that’s a factor of demand supply - if Stokes is not available, then Saifuddin’s chances will improve - be it IPL or PSL), rather my point is being eligible to apply - obviously if Dinesh Ramdhin can enjoy a Gold contract to bat at 4 at PSL, many BD players should be hopeful there (or in AFG league or Canadian league), but it can’t happen if they don’t get NOC from BCB - therefore the worrying should be more with the players.

    BCB’s risk is much lower here - BD people love their cricket and team more than players: BCB can ban top 35 players and make a team out of the U19 squad .... and invite Nepal to play a 5 match series, still the stadium will be houseful for the 5th game, even if Nepal is 4-0 up, TV channels will be sponsored - that’s the biggest power of BCB - even 12 years back, they banned all 15 players who went to ICL.

    Most no of BD players player in the first season of PSL. After that I don’t remember quite a lot other than couple here and there. Also dont remember many BD players playing in BBL, Natwest, IPL or even SA’s T20 league.

    When you are gonna use a certain tone in your words because you are riled up by someone than you should be ready to take a few at your chin too. I think you know what I am talking about.

    I respect you as a poster and your knowledge of the game however just because someone pumped you up and you starting to strike your sword in the air like no tmw is not right in my opinion. I respect Bangladeshi team and their players but if you are gonna attack PSL, PCB and Pakistani players just because someone put you out of your comfort zone than thats not a very mature way to deal with things.

    The problem is with you guys, and I exactly knew that, hence had to respond you. There has been so much trolling by PAK posters here that, for anything & everything that you guys find a counter punch for every word - which is not the case here.

    I know exactly where the problem lies - “forget IPL or BPL.....” - I know my cricket very well, be sure about that - that wasn’t a comparison between IPL, PSL or BPL; neither to let PSL down or show how good BPL is over PSL. Rather, if you had known your cricket better, should have realised that BPL is BCB’s own league - at least 15 x 7 = 105 BD players are guaranteed to get a contract in BPL regardless of their quality or demand, with a minimum payment of $20K (so far, this year it might go down for a change in the proceedings) for 6 weeks gana-bazana, and IPL obviously comes as a bench mark. I am not that deluded yet to draw a silly comparisons between all these PLs & SLs - BBL or EPL is irrelevant for our players, hence I just mentioned PSL, CPL, AFG leaguers as examples .... could have been UAE T10 as well.

    My chin is quite tempered, and my head is quite level headed - therefore I write from head, not heart. Stop being so insecure, for anything related to PAK cricket - it has gone to such a desperate level that in other thread I see you writing “....no Asian pacers have done anything ...... against a full strength Australian batting line up” - I exactly know where it’s coming from and why - just one example. I don’t post to put down any team or player, let alone insult a nation - but I’ll not allow few trolls to enjoy their few seconds of glory here & be sure that you are not one of them, so relax.

    Papon is a gangster, often got everything as he wished, probably challenged for the first time this hard. Players must have some solid grounds, because they have put a lot on stake here - forget IPL or BPL, even to send names for PSL or Afghan league’s auction, players will need NOC from BCB; same for Dhaka League as well. Shakib might get away with by retiring from National team (& central contract), but not the others.

    I am sure we haven’t heard the end of it, but hope cricket won’t stop for that.
    What is your opinion on Papon? Do you think he is a bad influence on BD team? I understand he interferes a lot with the selections even though he is not the official selector.

    ".no Asian pacers have done anything ...... against a full strength Australian batting line up" and isnt the line factually correct?

    Your level headedness is not reflected in the hate you have inside you, maybe its due to some sort of complex you have when it comes to BD cricket.

    Are you seriously saying that you didnt say " Even PSL or Afghan league" with the intention to belittle PSL? Can you say that with all honesty.

    Forget about the AUS part - you got the message. If I wanted to be factually correct, easiest way was to copy paste exact words.

    With all honesty, I am seriously saying that it wasn’t an attempt to defame PSL - I take lot of pride of my little knowledge on cricket and my integrity to be fair & impartial - I’ll be cheating myself if I compare with PSL & AFG league. But, why did you feel so - I don’t think PSL loses or gains it’s status by being compared to AFG league or IPL - both are equally hilarious though.

    I have absolutely no complex - I know exactly where cricket world stands relatively. Unfortunately can’t tell that for many here, which is the main problem. Some of my posts are not outbursts of hate, rather you can say that it’s to keep sanity in PP - but things are getting better, only few left and that’ll be resolved in due course of time; Misbah’s PAK team will be quite helpful in that regard as well.

    Net, net he has been good to BD cricket, in fact instrumental. Guy isn’t a saint by any means but he is capable - he was CEO of Beximco Pharma by the age of 45 and that was earned, on his own credit. I have met the guy few times and he is passionate about BD cricket, may be sometimes too passionate.

    Regarding interference, I think best way to describe is that - in this Awami League regime, BCB is probably one of the best functioning institutions, so you know.

    I think it began with Bangladesh posters who had their heads in the clouds following the 2015 series and defeating Pakistan in the Asia Cup last year.

    Virtually every single Bangladesh fan on here claimed their team was better than Pakistan's and were getting a bit arrogant with their outlandish predictions of beating Pakistan at the WC, but we saw how that turned out.

    Lets also not forget about the threads that were made such as "is Bangladesh becoming a powerhouse in cricket", like seriously I don't agree with trolling back but you guys bring it upon yourselves.

    Yes PSL isn't one of the premier T20 leagues but with the greatest of respect, not only you guys have got beaten by Afghanistan in most T20Is you have contested with them in the last few years but you can't even compete with them in red ball cricket, as evident by your team's inept performance against them recently at home.

    I know Pakistan are not a top 5 side, we are very mediocre but reading the opinions of Bangladesh fans you would think they are "becoming a powerhouse in cricket" and Indian umpires have thwarted their chances of clinching their first ICC silverware.

    Trust me I am really happy to know that, as when you respect someone (As I do you for your knowledge of the history of the game) it can really disappoint you when that person does something when you dont expect from him which I thought you did on few occasions like "Abhi to Shurauaat hai Aagey Aaage dekho" regarding Pak struggling on occasions and at the same time BD doing well. So obviously its something difficult to accept for me to be without any bad blood between you and certain posters as the statement itself was kind of a taunt. However, now as you have said that you didnt do that in any bad faith then I take all of my words back and I hope you dont think that taunts of certain posters reflect the sentiment of all the posters here and even most of the Pakistani people.

    If you have known me here for sometime than you should know that I am not someone who doesnt admit the reality and me stating a certain fact isnt me not trying to accept a reality but what I genuinely believe and I can support those with stats. BD cricket is developing and hopefully will produce much more players impressive performances with time and at the same time I know India is a top cricketing nation in the current era so anything I write is always based upon the cricket rather than me trying to prove something which doesnt exist.

    I know how some posters can be and I was afraid that it might start to blur your judgement and unbiased opinions. However, glad to know from you that its not the case and hopefully even if it was a little bit (A natural human reaction on certain occasions) than hopefully you know that few posters shouldnt define posters PP and Pakistanis and your sentiments regarding them.

    Decline of Pakistan makes me sad. Sri Lanka can still win surprise tests or even series at times, but Pakistan has really fallen off. As for Bangladesh, well they have always been minnows except from 2015-2017. Cricket really needs a strong Pakistan and Sri Lanka, currently it's just India and western teams.

    Leave him be; he has a deep hatred for Pakistan that surfaces when his buttons are pushed.

    India is a much much better team than the current South African one and will bury the other Asian teams in 1st innings itself with a 450+ score. No way Asian teams are going to set a challenging total for India to chase in the 4th innings.

    The pattern will be like

    Opponent - 300/350
    India - 450/500
    Opponent - 200/250
    India either win by an innings or chase the modest 2 digit target in the last innings.

    Target was low in England,South Africa last year below 200 still India can't chase it,what iam saying is India always depends on toss,if they are the no 1 they have to prove with loss of toss.

    We're not talking about SA and Eng are we ?
    My point was about Asian teams being not good enough to win against India irrespective of the toss.

    And FYI,

    India lost 4 out of 5 tosses against England in 2016 and won the series 4-0.

    India lost 3 out of 4 tosses against Australia and won 2-1.

    Bangladesh Cricket Board To Sue Captain Shakib Al Hasan


    Bangladesh cricket authorities said on Saturday they would take legal action against star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for allegedly breaching his contract to sign a sponsorship deal with a top mobile phone operator. Shakib Al Hasan on Tuesday inked the agreement with former national team sponsor Grameenphone for an undisclosed sum at a time when he was also leading a players' strike for better pay and benefits. "We believe there was a contractual and procedural breach in his contract. Of course, we will take action against it," Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury told AFP.

    BCB president Nazmul Hassan said they will seek compensation from both Shakib and the phone company.

    "We are going to take legal action. There is no scope to spare anyone. We will seek compensation from both the company and the player," Hassan said in an interview with Bengali newspaper Kalerkantho on Saturday.

    "We thought it's a kind of 'I don't give a damn to the rules of Board' attitude. If that is the case, of course, we will take tough action," he said.

    Grameenphone -- which is majority owned by Norway's Telenor -- was the sponsor of Bangladesh Cricket Board during the period of 2009-2011.

    Hassan said the Board incurred huge losses after the company signed players individually instead of bidding to become the team sponsor in 2015 when a rival operator won the deal.

    "This is why we barred the players to sign any agreement with telcos... yet, he (Shakib) did this. And you see the timing? Agreement after stopping play. These are audacious behaviour," he said.

    The BCB president also criticised Shakib for his on-field performance.

    "We defeated England and Australia in our own ground. Now we lost to Afghanistan. If I was responsible I would not show my face let alone stage a protest," he added, referring to Bangladesh's 224-run loss in one-off Test against Afghanistan in early September when Shakib was captain.

    Shakib led a players' strike on Monday which follows increasing criticism from players that the Bangladesh Cricket Board was not sharing its wealth.

    Bangladesh cricket authorities said on Saturday they would take legal action against star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for allegedly breaching his contract to sign a sponsorship deal with a top mobile phone operator. Shakib Al Hasan on Tuesday inked the agreement with former national team sponsor Grameenphone for an undisclosed sum at a time when he was also leading a players' strike for better pay and benefits. "We believe there was a contractual and procedural breach in his contract. Of course, we will take action against it," Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury told AFP.

    BCB president Nazmul Hassan said they will seek compensation from both Shakib and the phone company.

    "We are going to take legal action. There is no scope to spare anyone. We will seek compensation from both the company and the player," Hassan said in an interview with Bengali newspaper Kalerkantho on Saturday.

    "We thought it's a kind of 'I don't give a damn to the rules of Board' attitude. If that is the case, of course, we will take tough action," he said.

    Grameenphone -- which is majority owned by Norway's Telenor -- was the sponsor of Bangladesh Cricket Board during the period of 2009-2011.

    Hassan said the Board incurred huge losses after the company signed players individually instead of bidding to become the team sponsor in 2015 when a rival operator won the deal.

    "This is why we barred the players to sign any agreement with telcos... yet, he (Shakib) did this. And you see the timing? Agreement after stopping play. These are audacious behaviour," he said.

    The BCB president also criticised Shakib for his on-field performance.

    "We defeated England and Australia in our own ground. Now we lost to Afghanistan. If I was responsible I would not show my face let alone stage a protest," he added, referring to Bangladesh's 224-run loss in one-off Test against Afghanistan in early September when Shakib was captain.

    Shakib led a players' strike on Monday which follows increasing criticism from players that the Bangladesh Cricket Board was not sharing its wealth.

    The players called off the strike late on Wednesday and started training on Friday for next month's India tour as the BCB accepted most of their demands.

    The relationship between players and the board officials have turned sour after this protest, it isn't going to end well.

    Wow board is going to sue Shakib for some random reason(main reason is probably because of him leading the player protest)

    Dont see this thing ending well as the board President has already taken the player protest very personally and also deemed it as a conspiracy.

    I can seen Shakib actually retiring earlier than expected from the national side & concentrate on t-20 leagues worldwide.

    I have to say, nepotism is one of the worst things that will never let sub-continent prosper like the western countries. the board president is not fit for the job to say the least.

    Shakib is a star player. He can easily get settled in another country and play cricket there.

    If BCB screws this up, it can come back to bite them.

    Had information that this was a conspiracy to sabotage India tour: BCB chief on players' strike


    Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan 'Papon' has alleged that there have been constant attempts to sabotage Bangladesh's upcoming tour of India and the strike by country's top cricketers with 11-point demand was an extension of that.

    Bangladesh players called off the strike after BCB agreed to their demands of better pay package at the international and first-class level days before their four-week-long tour of India where they are supposed to play 3 T20s and two Tests.

    "You people (media) haven't yet seen anything about the India tour. Just wait and watch. If I am saying that I had specific information that this was a conspiracy to sabotage India tour, then you should believe me," Hasan told the country's premier Bengali daily 'Prothom Aalo' in an interview.

    Asked to explain in detail why he thought so, Hasan has expressed his suspicion in the manner senior opener Tamim Iqbal has pulled out of the tour citing his wife's delivery as a reason after initially agreeing to only skip the final Test.

    "Tamim had initially told me that he will only skip the second Test (in Kolkata from November 22-26) for the birth of his second child. However, after the meeting with players, Tamim comes to my room and said, he wants to opt-out of the whole tour. I asked him 'why so?' but he simply said he won't go," Hasan revealed to the Bengali daily.

    Bangladesh are due to arrive in New Delhi on Wednesday, October 30 but BCB president is skeptical that there could be a few more pull-outs.

    "Now after this, I won't be surprised if I find that someone else pulls out at the eleventh hour when we would be left with no other options. I have called Shakib to have a chat. Now if he also pulls out, where do I even find a captain? I might have to change the whole combination. What do I even do with these players," he said.

    The top boss is still livid with the arm-twisting tactic employed by senior cricketers and feels he made a mistake by agreeing to their demands.

    "I still can't believe it. I speak to them every day. They didn't even intimate me before calling a strike. I feel that it was a mistake on my part to have agreed to their demands. I should have never done that," he said.

    "I should have told the players, 'Unless you call off strike, we will not sit with you guys across the negotiation table. Speaking to various member boards, I felt that this should have been our approach but the media also created pressure on us," Hasan also added.

    No Legal Action But Shakib Owes Explanation For Violating Contract: BCB CEO


    Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) won’t take legal action against allrounder Shakib Al Hasan after he violated central contract by signing a deal with a Telecom company.

    Reports had emerged that BCB was contemplating taking a legal route to seek compensation after Shakib was unveiled as the brand ambassador of Grameenphone on October 22, a competitor of Bangladesh team sponsor Robi.

    However, BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury has denied any such action saying Shakib will have explain his action.

    “It’s an internal matter of the board and that’s why there is no need to take any legal action against Shakib. However he certainly has to explain why he signed an endorsement deal which is in violation of central contract,” BCB CEO was quoted as saying by Bangladeshi daily Prothom Aalo.

    Earlier, BCB President Nazmul Hasan has said that a strict action will be taken against their Test and T20I captain as it seems he gives ‘a damn to the board’. “We are going into legal action. We cannot spare anyone in this regard. We will ask for compensation. We will seek compensation from the company as well as from the player. I heard about it (on October 23) and asked to sent legal notice to Grameenphone to claim compensation. I have asked to send a letter to Shakib for explanation. We must give him a chance to show that he didn’t break the rule. To us it seemed that it was something like ‘give a damn to the board’ and if that is the case we will take tough action,” Hasan was quoted as saying by Bengali daily Kalerkantho.

    He added, “Robi [Telecom] was our title sponsor and Grameenphone did not bid and instead they grabbed few cricketers by paying them TK One or Two Crores. What happened in the end? The board lost TK 90 Crores in three years.”

    I think, BCB has sent a show cause notice - didn’t sue him.

    It might happen that something they decided to overlook in past, now have brought up to settle some scores. If it goes to extreme, Shakib is in fault here - Axiata is BCB’s sponsor and they are direct competitors of Telenor, therefore Shakib should have been more careful regarding this. I think the term is called “Ambush Marketing”, where one particular brand monopolies an event or another brand (& it’s elements) for any commercials by it's rivals. If it goes to litigation, Shakib will lose the case as central contracted player.

    But, I think it won’t go to that far - Papon thinks he owns BCB, therefore it hurt his ego that players unitedly got him to seat on negotiating table; he is shooting scatter guns here. It will be solved on negotiating table, but obviously it’ll hamper the preparation of cricket team.
