I think this is irresponsible journalism. If you're going to pursue a story, then pursue it fully. By doing what Isam did, the world is left with only half the story.
Regarding this specific news, I'll take a side with the reporter. Cause this actually helped Shakib to make an indirect threat along with his claim for rightful demand on behalf of other cricketers as well. I dont know yet if every players have got paid that 25% or not. Since cricketers dont have any recognised professional burgaining agent in BD, this sorta reporter is sometimes their only hope to get attention.
