I know that many players are holding back from committing to BPL2 until the money is cleared for the staff and players from BPL1.
As the illustrious Mustafa Kamal proudly claimed on June 9th: "The BCB will pay all outstanding monies so no one needs to worry" November 20th now and this has not happened.
Some players will put their name in for auction I am sure. The majority are unlikely to whilst money remains unpaid.
If the franchises haven't cleared it by now, it's fairly evident they are not going to. Over to the BCB (as it was on June 9th) to clear the mess. My fear is, as it always has been, that payments are only made if there are severe consequences for those not paying....
Ever the optimist
