Well life is not always fair, how is it fair that these players get paid thousands of dollars (plus sponsors/ ads etc) and the performance they give is zero? There needs to be certain standard, either salary should be based on performance plus bonus for good performance or players should be dropped for consistent non performance and get no money (Ashraful, shafiul, kayes etc)
