what some have failed to grasp is the fact that Shakib is not just talking about himself. How much do others get paid except for Shakib, Tamim and one or two other players? Indian players who have never even played ipl earn as much or more.
Some were talking about the selfless love for the game by wasim akram who was the biggest match fixing beneficiary in Pakistan. The fact that match fixing became an epidemic in the 90s was indirectly because of low wages.

What Shakib wass focusing on was that cricket boards need to pay test players enough so that they don't have to depend on ipl or any other club league for money. Bangladeshi test players of the current team may not leave but the next generation will certainly do if given the opportunity like West Indians have. What he gave was a warning for the future and something ICC and BCB must consider seriously.
