Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah believes raising match of Test will encourage cricketers to play longer version cricket with more passionately.

There is rumor in the country’s cricket fraternity that some of national stars are not very keen to feature in Test matches.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Sunday announced increasing match fees for national cricketers.

BCB President Nazmul Hassan made the announcement after a meeting at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in the evening.

As per the latest plan, players who will represent Bangladesh in international cricket will get Tk 200,000 for a T20 match, Tk 300,000 for an ODI and Tk 600,000 for a Test.

Previously, the players were paid Tk 125,000 for T20I, Tk 200,000 for ODI and Tk 350,000 for Test.

‘’I think this is a very [positive thing for us and I think we should thank our board for taking this decision [raising match fee],’’ Mahmudullah told reporters at the post match press conference on Monday.

‘’I think everybody will be encouraged to play Test cricket. I am not saying there is no interest but at the end of the day cricket is our bread and butter and we get remuneration from here,’’ he said.

‘’I think boys will be more encouraged from now onwards and I think we all should welcome this decision,’’ he said adding that he is happy that their demands are met by the BCB in recent times.

Bangladesh cricketers called for an indefinite strike after putting forward 13-point demand last year and later the cricketers decided to call it off after BCB promised to look into it.
‘’Yes some [demand] of them have been fulfilled and this is good for our cricket,’’ he said.

‘’But as I said we should welcome board decision [of raising remuneration] as at the end of the day there is matter for remuneration,’’ he concluded.
