Default FICA begins legal action over BPL

Huge setback for the BPL IMO. On the plus side, those who were complaining about too few domestic players will get to see a lot more in BPL2...

This is getting nasty. I guess like everything else in BD, franchises thought they would do "dibo... ditesi... ajke... kalke.." etc bd style! Very unprofessional. This might kill all the good name that was earned during BPL.

I don't know if its Lotus' fault or if its mismanagement from franchises; whatever it is, you don't treat your guests this way. It is a national shame for all of us.

Really poor from BCB. They must act decisively before it spirals out of control. Enough damage done already.

This is what happens when you try to grasp too big that you cant eat. Better they should admit BCB/franchisees dont have liquid fund (which they lyied before due to hold board's interest & respect) and after certain chashflow BPL due will be paid. Things could 've been solved like SL way.

Surely BCB with its big FD reserve atm, players will get bank guarantee in next season anyway. But this will cost a lot of extra expense to BCB from now on in case of any delay with charges.

Fact is Lota insulting FICA head lead us to this shameful national humiliation state. No doubt the culprit/resposible bodies are here- BPL Govt body & non-eligible franchises. Along with illegal Pakistan tour case, now Lota have to defend this in court.

Default FICA begins legal action against BPL franchises & BCB

Legal proceedings have been initiated by the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations (FICA) against the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and the franchises involved in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) following a widespread failure to pay players.
The first edition of the BPL ended in February but, despite repeated assurances and deadlines, FICA has been informed that many players have yet to receive full payment. As a result, the players' organisation has instructed lawyers in Dhaka to file a claim against the relevant franchises and the BCB. http://www.espncricinfo.com/banglade...s=all#comments

Players shouldn't take part in BPL-2 if they're not guaranteed payments like said in the article.

Why doesn't BCB just clear the players' dues and then recover the money from the franchises? Would've avoided all the negative publicity.

Sahara just signed a huge sponsorship deal with the BCB. Maybe Sahara can be convinced to save the BPL in exchange for title sponsorship. "The batsman thought he hit a Sahara Maximum, but instead the fielder made a Sahara Kamaal Katch at the boundary giving the bowler a Sahara Moment of Success!"

Pakistani allrounder Shahid Afridi, who topped the auction at $700,000, reportedly said last month that he had been fully paid.

BPL organisers clear dues of Pakistan players

Staff Report

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.

Well Pak case is different, They were allready bogged down with this issue since Asia cup conflict. What about local players and staffs? Mushiqto dhomok khaoar por aar mukh khulena, onno keo kichu bolche ei bepare?!

BCB Press Release

Saturday, 09 June 2012

Media Release

Outcome of BPL Governing Council Meeting


SECOND EDITION OF BPL T20
The Governing Council decided to hold the second edition of the BPL T20 in mid-January 2013. There will be an increase in the number of venues based on infrastructure, logistical support and broadcast facilities.

BPL PLAYER PAYMENT
Following the expiry of the 07 June deadline given to franchises for clearing all outstanding payment of foreign cricketers who had participated in the inaugural edition of the competition, the Governing Council has received the following payment status from the six franchises:

· The net payable (following tax deduction) to foreign cricketers was US$ 2.77 million (approximately).

· The unpaid fees figure currently stands at US$ 3,05,000.00 (approximately).

· Two of the six BPL franchises have completed their payment to foreign cricketers in full.


The Governing Council has recommended to the BCB that as guarantor the Board should clear the outstanding payment and the process should be initiated immediately.

The payment of local cricketers is also being seriously looked into by the Governing Council which has not received a definite picture of the payment status from the franchises. Therefore it has been decided that the Governing Council would speak to individual players and relevant officials of team managements and take measures accordingly.

NON COMPLIANCE ISSUE
The Governing Council has thanked the franchises who have complied with player payment and franchisee fee payment. The Governing Council will issue formal letters to the franchises who have not complied with the mandatory requirements and may consider stern action.

TIM MAY’S COMMENTS
The Governing Council expressed disappointment at the recent remarks of the Federation of International Cricketers’ Association (FICA) chief executive Tim May regarding the BPL. Governing Council Chairman Gazi Ashraf Hossain said: “Obviously he (May) is saying things on assumption and misinformation as only a tiny fraction of the payment is outstanding. When an organisation like the BCB is the guarantor then the question of uncertainty regarding players’ payment does not arise.

“We wanted to give the franchises a fair chance of completing the player payment as they have invested a huge amount of money in these times of worldwide recession and hence the extension of the deadline. We are happy that barring a very small sum the entire payable to foreign cricketers have been cleared.

“The BPL in its first year had attracted the most number of overseas players, including the top international cricketers after the Indian Premier League. The profile of Bangladesh cricket has been enhanced by this competition and hundreds of foreign cricketers are eagerly waiting for a chance to participate in the next edition. Someone in Mr. May’s position should be an advocate of such an event which has benefited professional cricketers across continents, rather than trying to undermine it. So far we have not received official complaints from any foreign or local cricketer and that should tell him what the BPL has meant to them.

“We think some people are getting paranoid over the BPL’s success and strength and are out to tarnish the image of the BCB and Bangladesh cricket. That will not deter our quest for excellence in the BPL and future editions will be bigger and more vibrant.”

$305K of $2.7m remains unpaid. Two franchises have cleared all their dues. In light of this, the aggressive stand of May and FICA is questionable but I wonder if the nastiness and bad publicity could have been avoided had the BCB responded to the original letter. A little bit of politeness goes a long way.

Kevon Cooper: Speaking to Newsday yesterday, Cooper expressed disappointment with his predicament and expressed scepticism about participating in the tournament in the future.

“It’s a great disappointment after playing. It’s not only me, a lot of the other West Indian players haven’t been paid. After a very good competition with the players and spectators satisfied with the level of play it’s disappointing.

Next year players will think twice about going there because you went and play with all your heart and to not be paid is not right,” Cooper declared.

The right-hander, who was a hit at the Indian Premier League for Rajasthan Royals before picking up an injury, revealed that his manager has been given the runaround by the Bangladesh Premier League but believes if the clubs cannot pay then the Bangladesh Cricket Board may have to fork out the money instead.


Kieron Pollard: Meanwhile, Pollard, who has played in Twenty20 tournaments throughout the world including the Indian Premier League, KFC Big Bash (Australia) and Friends Life T20 (England) revealed that this is the first time he has experienced a situation like this.

“Before the tournament they were supposed to pay a certain percentage (and) that didn’t happen, during the tournament they were supposed to pay a certain percentage (and) that didn’t happen and after it was the same thing,” Pollard revealed.

“It’s disappointing knowing it’s a league you’ve played in and haven’t been paid,” he said. Asked whether he would return for the second edition of the Bangladesh Premier League scheduled to start in January 2013, Pollard was reluctant to indicate his availability next year.

“Obviously it’s a disappointing situation and it’s something you will have to decide but it’s not a good first impression they’ve made,” he pointed out.
