Default Unpaid Rajshahi players threatened boycott

Unpaid Rajshahi players threatened boycott

The dispute over the lack of player payments in the BPL has intensified with Chamara Kapugedera confirming that he and other overseas players for Duronto Rajshahi had been set to boycott their match against Khulna Royal Bengals on Friday.

Though a pullout was averted, a source close to the situation told ESPNcricinfo that foreign players from all franchises would stop playing in the BPL if they were not paid by Monday.

Kapugedera and other overseas Rajshahi players were convinced to take the field just before the start of Friday's afternoon game by BCB officials and the match began on time, though the players remain unpaid. The situation was so dire that the Rajshahi management had to request the match referee and the opposition captain to let them field an all-local line-up even after a delayed toss.

"We were going to sit out this game," Kapugedera said in the post-match press conference. "Most of the foreign guys who have been playing these games were doing so without being paid. We played to keep BCB's respect and to give them a chance to pay. We needed to give them a point that we are not going to play without anything.

What is this?! I thought 6 out of the 7 teams cleared all their payments? So the BCB are basically lying. Sorry to say I think the BPL should be discontinued from next year. We are not fit to hold a tournament like this.

Yes, the blame is always someone else's. But to the foreign players and the media, it does not matter; and the BLAME goes to the unfortunate country of Bangladesh....shameful.

First, what is the proof of bank delay?
Second, Rajshahi looked completely disinterested today. It is difficult to focus on the game with such distractions, I guess.

It doesn't matter who's fault it is. BCB, BPL, bank, PM's office. If Bangladesh cannot guarantee professionalism then they have no business running a league like this. This is shameful for all Bangladeshis except those scumbags who have already skimmed their profits.

It will be very good if BPL fails due to the corruption and greed of the powers that be.

That being said its seems its probably just 1 or 2 franchises that are lagging behind. The other franchises are just unprofessional scumbags who will eventually pay up months after their deadlines. Seems Rajshahi is no better than a thieving Kerala Tuskers franchise.
