Bangladesh Cricket Board Denies Accusations Of Not Paying Players The ICC Prize Money

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has brushed aside allegations from the players’ body of non-payment to their athletes. The Federation of International Cricketers’ Association (FICA) has claimed in a report that the BCB has not paid the prize money to the players from the events organised by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Nevertheless, the BCB dismissed all those accusations and asserted that they have often handed additional incentives to its cricketers. Meanwhile, the national team has not played any international match since March. Bangladesh’s last top-level game was against Zimbabwe, which was a T20 international.

The Board affirmed in one of their statements that they have settled the payments of all the ICC events, including the most recent one. The latest ICC tournament was the 2019 World Cup in which Bangladesh, led by Mashrafe Mortaza could not make it to the knockouts despite their best efforts.

The BCB has completed prize money payment to players from all previous ICC events including the last, which was the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England and Wales,” the statement said.

BCB affirms they settled payment disputes regarding the Bangladesh Premier League as well:

The apex body of cricket in the nation went on to say that the only unresolved payment dispute from the T20 league concerned four persons. There were three overseas players and a coach, of one particular team, which participated in the 2018 edition of BPL. But they revealed that they did initiate legal proceedings to get it resolved.

The only unresolved/disputed payment from the BPL concerns four persons – three overseas players and a coach, of one particular team that had participated in the sixth edition of the BPL held in 2018. This is an isolated case in a tournament where more than 170 local and overseas players and support staff were contracted,” the BCB added further.
