Bangladesh's tour of India doubtful as players decide not to take part in any cricket activity
According to reports, the Bangladesh cricket team has listed 11 demands and will be set for its tour of India only if those demands are fulfilled
London: Ahead of the India tour, Bangladesh cricketers have decided not to take part in any cricket activity until their demands are met.
There are 11 demands according to a list released by the players which include the reversal of the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) decision last month to abandon the Bangladesh Premier League's (BPL) franchise-based model, ESPN Cricinfo reported.
Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah were the players present during the press conference that took place at the National Cricket Academy in Dhaka.
The decision made on BPL resulted in the reduction of the average professional cricketer's earnings to an all-time low. The cricket governing body also did not raise the match fees in the first-class competition that began earlier this month.
After Afghanistan defeated Bangladesh in the one-off Test, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) called for a rule under which every Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) team must include at least one leg-spinner in their playing eleven.
Bangladesh team is scheduled to tour India for a three-match T20I and two-match Test series, starting from November 3.
