BCB President Calls Player Strikes A ”Conspiracy”
Of late, the Bangladesh Cricket Board has been facing a tough time in the middle. The players of the National Team are involved in a strike causing tensions to the respective board. In the latest development, the president of Bangladesh Cricket Board calls the player strike as conspiracy.
A time after the Bangladesh cricketers went on strike saying that they wouldn’t take part in any cricket activity until their requirements are marked by their board, BCB president Nazmul Hassan on Tuesday said it’s a conspiracy to bring bad name to the sport in the country.
We will find out who is behind this – Nazmul Hassan
He also frequently hinted that the players’ movement is a decision of long-term planning against Bangladesh cricket. The president said the strike just before the very important series against India in India delivers a special message.
“We will find who is behind this conspiracy,” said Hassan during a press conference as quoted by leading local newspaper The Daily Star.
Further, he claimed that the players did not contact him or pick up any phone calls from the board members as “they (players) know if they approach us with their demands, we would have met them.”
The BCB president, however, did not reveal plans about their next course of action after an unofficial meeting in Mirpur, the report further said.
Addressing the media, senior players like Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, who were all present at the press conference, had clearly said on Monday that they will be off cricketing activities till the time their demands are not fulfilled.
Nazmul Hassan also said the conditioning camp for the upcoming India tour will begin on time and hoped players will join. All in all, it will be interesting to see how things would turn out.
