Tiger cricketers have announced to restrain from all forms of cricket with the BCB indefinitely.
They made the decision at a press conference on Monday afternoon. In the meantime, the current mismanagement of domestic cricket has already angered the cricketers.
Shakib-Tamim-Mushfiqur placed an 11-point demand at the press conference. The strike will continue until the demands are met, they said.
Notable among the demands of the cricketers are — increasing payroll, bringing the ODI version in the National Cricket League, creating a decent domestic season calendar, ensuring payment of wages, developing standards at various departmental levels, etc.
At a press conference, Shakib said something like this has been decided in a very short time. Therefore, it was not possible to make any claim for the women’s national team. They are also asked to report any demands they may have. Besides, different age-based teams would be out of this, said country’s all-rounder.
