Mushfiq urges to bring parity of BPL payment for local players

SPORTS REPORTER, Dhaka

Khulna Tigers skipper Mushfiqur Rahim expressed his unhappiness over the disparity of payment for the local players in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

He spoke out the matter just few hours before the kick-off the special edition of the Bangabandhu-BPL, which Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) run by their own funds without any assistance from the franchisee.

It’s nothing new for Mushfiq. When he was the captain of the national team in Test, he spoke out the disparity of local players’ payment in BPL.

He clearly told that the local players did not get their payment what they expect and what they should get it from the domestic blockbuster Twenty20 cricket tournament. He praised for their quick payment this time around.

“Fortunately, the payment has been made quickly this time. It’s enough that the BPL is being held. We’re paying attention of the policy-makers and they ensured us in that way. We hope we will get our payment and facility from the next,” said Mushfiqur Rahim.

“The payment and other facilities for the local players are lesser. They played in less payment. We play round the year but it is seen that we are getting less than others, who only play T20. It’s disparity for us,” he told reporters.

Mushfiq said that local players in local tournaments across the world got more payments than the overseas players.

“The local players at foreign countries get more payments. But it’s not seen here in Bangladesh. Along with that, we have to improve the standard of our games. I will hope that we can play better cricket in BPL and get to see our increased payment,” he said.

“It’s not that a player will get team if his payment is more. Mark it many good players did not get team this year. I think we should fix those considering it. This year the BPL is challenging for us. It’s challenging for me also,” he added.  

He said the players have remained the possibility of getting more payment if the franchisee-based BPL is held. So, he said the players like him want to get franchisee-based BPL back.
