Pakistan players receive their full due payment from BCB

After receiving a legal action threat from the Federation of International Cricketers Association (FICA), the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has finally cleared the non-payment of dues to Pakistan cricket players who took part in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
It seems that BCB was forced to clear the dues of Pakistan cricket players after Tim May, chief executive of FICA, sent a layer to BCB president Mustafa Kamal a few days ago asking him to clear the dues of all overseas and local players who took part in the BPL within five days or face legal action.
Shahid Afridi who was one of the most expensive players purchased in the players’ bid for the tournament said on Tuesday that he had finally received his full dues two days back from the BPL.
Afridi who was purchased of around USD 700,000 in the bid had just played in the semi-final and final for Dhaka Gladiators and enjoyed his experience of playing in the BPL.
However, FICA had come forward to take the action against BCB after several overseas players who took part in the BPL complained of not getting their full payments within 45 days after the last match of the BPL.
