Dhaka Premier League still uncertain

Update : 30 Apr 2013, 04:48 PM

The ten day ultimatum made on April 20 by Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB) as well as the nation’s cricketers regarding starting the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) expired today. Outstanding payment issues from this year’s already concluded Bangladesh Premier League was another issue that the cricketing community had raised 10 days ago. Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President NazmulHasan had assured the protesters that the matter would addressed within 10 days. CWAB secretary Debabrato Paul said, “We and the cricketers are in deep shock from the Savar tragedy which took place few days ago. We think it’s not a good time for us to push our demands about the DPL.  So we are relaxing the demand for the next few days, as the whole country is also in deep shock”. The players and CWAB have yet to receive word from the BCB about the start of the DPL.  “We have been discussing the issue for the last couple of days. A lot of players have called me for information about the board’s decision, but I haven’t got any positive response from the board yet. But we will raise our voice again if we don’t get any positive result, and this time, we will be forced to take some hard decisions,” added Debabrato.
