Dhaka Metropolis Cricket Committee Chairman Mr. Jalal Yunus told to the journalists in Thursday, “Premier Cricket League is a traditional domestic league of Bangladesh and there are no history of due payment in this tournament. So this time it will be no exception.” He said it after some of the cricketers in the league expressed suspicions of getting their payment on time.
About the allocation of money for each cricketer Mr. Yunus told, “Clubs are bound to pay 40% of the total payment during signing of contract, another 30% after the completion of the first phase of the league, and the remaining 30% have to be paid within a month of completion of Premier League.”
Though BCB is involved in the financial transaction of BPL, it is all between clubs and cricketers in the Premier League.
BCB has so far considered five venues for the league. After 18th of September, Sher-E-Bangla National stadium might also be available for matches.
Though the venues and fixture is yet to be fixed, the names that are known so far are – two venues of Fatullah, second field of BKSP, Shahid Chandu stadium of Bogura and Shahid Kamarujjaman stadium of Rajshahi.
Yunus also informed that reserve days are kept this season considering the rain factor. A postponed match will be started from the time it is stopped in the previous day.
