Bangladesh Cricket Board is eager to sit for a meeting with the protesting cricketers Wednesday evening, confirmed the board’s CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury to the media.

Earlier Monday, around 50 top cricketers of the country announced a strike for an indefinite period until their 11-point demands are accepted by the BCB.

The protesting cricketers mostly emphasized on the development of the domestic circuit, improved training facilities for all cricketers and for a better and secured payment structure

“Tamim Iqbal said the meeting will be set after discussions between the cricketers. We have been in contact with the players. We made it known that the board is eager to make a quick resolution regarding this issue. In that regard, we can sit for a meeting at 5pm, and we are ready to meet anywhere,” Nizamuddin told the media Wednesday morning.

He added, “Not only flexible, the cricketers’ demands can be resolved quickly. The board president (Nazmul Hasan) has also said a quick solution is possible.”

Meanwhile, the third round of the National Cricket League was set to get underway Wednesday across different venues of the country.

Following the players’ strike, the country’s premier first-class competition has been pushed on hold regarding which Nizamuddin said, “Everything is going as per our plans. The fixtures have already been set so the sooner the issue is resolved, the better.”
