Zurich, Apr 26(ANI): The Federation of International Cricketers' Associations (FICA) chief Tim May has criticized the Bangladesh Premier League administration for their non-compliance with terms and conditions of player contracts.
"As part of the contract, we staggered payment obligations of the franchises across three dates, one before the tournament commenced, one during and one following the event. We also ensured that the Bangladesh Cricket Board guaranteed the player payments (this was written into the player contract)," Pak Passion.net quoted him, as saying.
"We advised players that despite us coming to agreement with the BPL regarding the terms and conditions of the contract - that we had some concerns regarding the tournament and advised that players should not travel to Bangladesh without receiving the first 25 percent instalment of their salary," he added.
He called on the BCB to pay the outstanding dues to players.
"Our take is that there is an obligation on the franchises and BCB to pay the players and that those obligations have well and truly expired. Whilst slowly but surely some of the players are being progressively paid, we don't really care for excuses as there is an obligation to pay and they must honor these obligations," he said.
He said the International Cricket council should get more involved in combating corruption and doping in the sport.
"I actually do feel that they should get more involved - particularly from an anti corruption and anti doping perspective. Some countries simply don't have the resources to provide all the necessary testing, policing and education related to the above, and as we have seen, any infractions of the respective codes have a large impact on the reputation and worth of the game worldwide," he said.
