Controversy regarding BPL money between BPL Body and Game On

Bangladesh Premier League had been initiated with a great deal irregulations and corruptions and after 2 seasons of BPL being played the situation is no different. Although the BCB officials often say about the transparency and accountability those words are apparently absent in the book of BPL. This is proved again. Still now, players are to get the money of 2 seasons. When and how the franchisees will pay the money there is loads of illusion about this. There is a new controversy grew up about the amount of money to be paid to the BPL Governing Council by the Game On sports. BPL Governing Council is claiming they are to get 28 crore taka from Game On and of them  Game On had transferred the bank draft 10 crore to BPL.

The president of the BPL Governing Body chairman Afzalur Rahman Sinha stated that ,Game On owes 19 crore taka as the media right , 8 crore taka of prize money and 82 lakh Taka of Rangpur Riders which is to be paid to the BPL Governing Council. He added that, he and the head of the Game On sport Anayetur Rahman Bappi sat for a meeting yesterday and there was the conciliation of 10 crore taka. The managing Director of Game on Anjon Ganguly was presnt there, too.

But the ‘Game On’ Managing Chairman doesn’t believe that BPL is to get so much money. The chairman of Game On sport Anayetur Rahman Bappi said,’ BPL Governing Council did the calculation according to their own interest and their self-rules. They shouldn’t forget that we also have accounting department. We will do calculation along with them too, how much they are to get from us and how much of money we are to get from them.’
