Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has described FICA’s allegation over prize-money issues in ICC events as a total misrepresentation of facts, stating that they have cleared all the payments to the players from all the previous ICC events.

The BCB also said that they have always maintained a standard by which players have received additional incentives from the Board on a number of occasions.

“This is a total misrepresentation of facts,” BCB said in a media release.

“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,” it also said.

“It may be mentioned that the BCB has maintained a standard by which players on a number of occasions have received additional incentives from the Board on top of the prize money from ICC events during distribution,” it added.

In addition, FICA’s media release pointed towards Bangladesh as one of the full members which supposedly has not paid its players ICC event prize money.

However, the BCB clearly stated that the only unresolved or disputed payment from the BPL concerns four (04) persons- three overseas players and a coach, of one particular team that had participated in the 6th edition of the BPL held in 2018.

They termed it as an isolated case and said that more than 170 local and overseas players and support staff were contracted in the tournament.

“The BCB would like to clearly state that the only unresolved/disputed payment from the BPL concerns four (04) persons- three overseas players and a coach, of one particular team that had participated in the 6th edition of the BPL held in 2018,” it said.

“This is an isolated case in a tournament where more than 170 local and overseas players and support staff were contracted,’ he added.

Between January and April 2020, the BCB received complaints from the representative(s) of the players and coach that the franchisee in question had failed to comply with its obligations and did not complete payment.

As per the franchisee agreement, it was the responsibility of the franchisee to directly pay in full its contracted players and support staff.

Nevertheless, as the regulatory body of the event the BCB had duly inquired into the matter and subsequently has initiated legal proceedings against the accused franchisee to realise the pending payment and resolve the issue.

It should be noted that the Board has kept constant contact with the concerned individuals and representative(s) who are fully aware of the steps taken by the BCB.
