What’s the future of the Premier League
Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League this year is undergoing a great deal of uncertainty. In this circumstance what the chairman of CCDM Jalal Younus said kind of indicates that, BCB has lost its guardianship in premier league. ‘I am still optimistic. If we get the cooperation of the clubs and the players league will be taken place.’ Jalal Younus said. BCB has always been the ‘toothless tiger’ before the club politics of the country. This year this is getting more explicit.
Players and clubs are not still agreed upon the grading and the payment providing system. The payment structure provided by the clubs was heard not to be ample. In their structure, ‘A plus’ will get 20 lakh,’ A’ 15 lakh, ‘B plus’10 lakh, ‘B’ 5 lakh and ‘C’ 3 lakh taka. The payment structure provided by the clubs was not complacent even to ‘KOAB’. ‘We do not obligate the grading system. Players are tormented about this as well. They prefer the negotiation with the clubs independently like before. They also want access of selecting their clubs by themselves.’ But the source informed that, if the clubs make the structure including maximum salary of 30 lakh and minimum of 5 lakh ,they won’t have any objection .
Jalal Younus admitted the dissatisfaction of ‘KOAB’ on the club’s proposal, too. ‘I will discuss the matter with the board president .the president will make the final decision. But now the question is when those things will be taken place. The league was supposed to start on 1 July. The auction was to be happened on 20th June. The vague and fictitious pay structure apparently refers to the lack of willingness to get the league on the way, assumed by many.
