A sense of vulnerability

The worry was escalated later in the night, when members of the BPL Governing Council stated that they didn't receive the bank guarantee from a number of franchisees. As per the new rules of the league, the franchisees were supposed to pay 25 per cent of the player's payment after the auctions. The fact that that didn't take place remains a concern and reminds one of the improper management during the first edition of the tournament which led to problems varying through a large degree.

The funny thing is although England provided NOC's for all their players auctioned ECB did not hesitate to warn them about the possible payment delay or not getting paid at all. Star Srilankans like Jaya and some WIndies players like Gayle did not show any interest in participating in the second leg due to the initial debacle caused by the franchisees.

After Hales withdrawal and 5 days before un-delivered contracts, your sense needs to get praise. :clap:

What's the point of creating new rules by the BPL Governing Council if none of the franchises follow them, do they even take the BPL Governing Council or the reputation of our country's cricket seriously?

Rules were meant to be broken-The only rule the BPL franchises live by

"It was financial issues and sub-standard administration. We haven't seen any evidence of financial obligations been adhered to so far for this event," May added. "So unfortunately, we are not brimming with confidence at the moment, even with the change of management of the BPL."

"The financial factors have weighed against these for a number of players who participated last year. They simply don't want to play in an event and worry when or if they are ever going to see any payments from the franchises or BPL.

"The fact that the bank guarantees and deposits that should have already been made, still have not been made, is a very worrying aspect for any player whether he's a domestic player or foreign player."

"Our latest advice to all foreign players is not to travel to Bangladesh until the BPL and its franchises have produced bank guarantees for the entire player payment pool for each team. These were required to be in place by January 7 - these are still not in place," May said.

FICA is busy concerned with players' payment. I wonder is there even any written contract has done yet with BCB and the franchisees or not? Does the franchisees even paid their deposit down payments to BCB?
I recall whole league was happened last year with verbal commitments without any signed contract or bank guarantees. Now, how can BPL organising committe can manage a bank guarantee with fund & everything without ensuring who to catch legally if any dispute arrises, which is very likely to happen again.

Because of injury Gayle is not participating, not any debacle.

Injury is one disguise used too many for not participating, among which being out of form the most famous.
