As expected. If the players still don't quit, they are idiots because I see more deadlines coming up, probably well into the summer, before everyone (owners/BCB) just forgets about it.

No point. Payment will still be an issue.

Can BCB do it? If they can, it will help salvage some face.

Agreed but my only request to him would be to follow up with the news till the very end. I mean, he must ensure that IF (thats a big if) and when the players are paid, he puts up an article to state that fact also.

I am not denying that... I am equally outraged at BCB and BPL about the whole issue. I am only saying that if a payment is made eventually, that also must get highlighted, otherwise there is always a reason to believe that the players never recieved the money. A story must be covered till the very end.

“Dhaka Gladiators paid their money and they also sent the players' contract documents through courier service while Khulna also gave their amount and contract documents, so their players will get their money within the next three-four working days. But the rest of the franchises are yet to pay their fees and as per their request we extended the date till Tuesday. We are hopeful. There is no reason to be worried about the payment because BCB is the guarantor,” said Mallick.
Dhaka and Khulna completed their first payment and players agreements. Others 5 franchises have 5 days to do so.

I wonder what the Bangladesh Bank's role in this is. The sums that each of these franchises are dealing in goes into the millions of US dollars and there must be a lot of paperwork re: foreign exchange disbursement. Could this be part of the problem and the reason behind the delays?? (NOT that that should be an excuse, given the year they had to plan and get requisite permission)

I don't get it. What's the point of extending the dead line over and over? As if somehow changing the deadline makes everything alright? Franchises don't need deadline to file paperworks at this point. Deadline should be asap.

No surprises here - when the second installment of a tournament is allowed to commence without resolving payment issues from the first, this is inevitable!

Well, if he gets paid, Owais Shah should come up to the media and inform everyone that he did indeed get paid and the issue has been resolved.
BPL GC/BCB should have or still should do some counter PR to restore the image and confidence.

very true. There are some counter activity needed. These days bashing BCB seems paani bhaat, even in BC & with all these some peeps (including opertunistic haterz) tries to generalise Bangladeshis aint funny at all. I'm sick of these critics & unpatriotic attitude of some. No one is baptised with tulsi water, this is what Bangladesh is, and our standards need not necessarily to be equal with FICA ones. Everyone who is playing BPL this year, they were all warned about these payment irregularities, time to bear some pain of it. Today or tommorow everyone will be paid, as long as BCB herself the guarantor here.

I don't think it's a question of can anymore. If they want the league to sustain, they have to do this.

You just cannot expect foreigners to participate in a tournament where the owners **** around with payment. If I were a foregin player in BPL, I know I wouldn't come back unless there were severe changes made to the league, and its payment policies.

We'll probably need to pay more than 25% before the season starts too. Need to do something drastic to change peoples opinions.

As per Papon's interview in Banglanews24, Owais Shah gave the wrong numbers and the money was sent to wrong account. Apparently he admitted that and soon is about to come clean in the media about that.

I hope that's the case and we can move on from the whole incident.

If its true, Shah needs to make a public statement and Cricinfo better cover it

. Isam bhai needs to focus on this. He did his job when there was a payment issue, hope he does his job again when the payment issue has been solved

Well I think the bank account blunder as well as payment happened AFTER his voicing out. Means his unpayment shout at first was a valid one.

Yes I think so ... BCB's initial response was, that they got a delayed check from DG...
