Misrepresentation of facts: BCB refutes FICA report

Dhaka, Aug 4 (TIWN) The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Tuesday dismissed FICA's claims regarding handling of franchisee event contracts and payment of players from ICC events.

"This is an isolated case in a tournament where more than 170 local and overseas players and support staff were contracted."

The BCB also strongly refuted claims that players haven't been paid for participating in ICC tournaments. Referring to it as 'misinterpretation of facts', the BCB pointed towards their incentive system which awards players for their good performances in big-ticket ICC tournaments, apart from their regular salary.

"FICA's media release also points towards Bangladesh as one of the full members which supposedly has not paid its players ICC event prize money. This is a total misrepresentation of facts," the release read.

"The BCB has completed prize money payment to players from all previous ICC events including the last, which was the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England and Wales.

"It may be mentioned that the BCB has maintained a standard by which players on a number of occasions have received additional incentives from the board on top of the prize money from ICC events during distribution."
