Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has held a discussion with Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hasan and Cricketers’ Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB) President Naimur Rahman Durjoy when they called on her at Ganabhaban in Dhaka.

The BCB top brass met with the premier on Wednesday over the ongoing crisis in the country’s cricket arena.

Talking to newsmen at BCB office at 3pm, Durjoy said: “The prime minister spoke to us about the matter.”

He, however, did not disclose the details of the meeting.

Jalal Yunus, chairman of BCB’s media committee, said: “The BCB president went to the honorable prime minister to discuss the players’ ongoing strike. But, I do not have details of the meeting.”

When asked whether any representatives from the players were present during the meeting, he said: “I am not aware about it, but we are ready to sit with them (cricketers) whenever they want.” 

What happened?

On Monday, Bangladesh cricketers submitted a 11-point demand towards BCB and went on a strike from all cricket playing activities until their demands are being met.

Improvement of payment structure and practice facilities in Dhaka Premier League, National Cricket League and Bangladesh Premier League were the major demands among others.

The declaration was announced during an impromptu press conference held by the players at the academy ground in Mirpur.

Senior players including Shakib al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, along with most of the national players, and many first-class cricketers were present at the press conference.
