BPL organisers clear dues of Pakistan players
KARACHI: The legal action threat issued by the Federation of International Cricketers Association (FICA) to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) over non-payment of dues to the players who took part in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) has apparently had its effects. Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi on Tuesday said he finally received his dues from the BPL two days back in full. “I got my full dues two days back from the BPL,” Afridi, who was one of the most expensive players purchased in the players bid for the tournament, was quoted as saying. As many as 20 Pakistan players represented different franchises in the BPL. FICA chief executive Tim May had few days back sent a letter to the BCB president Mustafa Kamal, asking him to clear the dues of all overseas and local players who took part in the BPL within five days or face legal action. Afridi, who only played in the semi-final and final for Dhaka and had a price of around $700,000 in the bid, said he had enjoyed his experience of playing in the BPL.
