Bangladesh's all-format captain Nazmul Hossain Shanto became the highest paid player of the country, eclipsing star all-rounder Shakib al Hasan after the Bangladesh Cricket Board hiked his captaincy remuneration.

In the latest board meeting, the captain's remuneration was increased to Tk1 lakh from Tk40,000.

Shanto is a category A+ cricketer and draws Tk7.9 lakhs per month.

With an additional Tk1 lakh as captain's remuneration, his overall salary stands at Tk8.9 lakhs.

As a three-format player, Shakib's salary is Tk7.9 lakhs.

Even though Shanto is the captain of all three formats, his remuneration will be considered for just one format.

However, the cricketers' salary was not increased this year apart from the captain's remuneration, but the match fee was increased.

The Test match fee increased to Tk8 lakhs from Tk6 lakhs.

Match fee for each ODI is Tk4 lakhs compared to the previous Tk3 lakhs.

T20 match fee increased to Tk2.5 lakhs from Tk2 lakhs.
