BSS, Dhaka : The Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB) wants the Dhaka Premier League (DPL) clubs to clear the 50 percent payment of the players, considering their sufferings due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. In an online meeting, that was attended by its president and BCB director Naimur Rahman Durjoy and secretary Debbroto Paul along with a few national and first class cricketers, CWAB requested Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to consult with the participating clubs about the payment. The tournament was halted after just one round as the outbreak of Covid-19 left the whole country stranded. The clubs were bound to pay the one third of the payment of the players before the commencement of DPL, considered as the most coveted cricket tournament of the country. But at least five clubs didn't comply with the rules set by the BCB, leaving the players in frustrating state. "We held an online meeting on Tuesday where along with our president Naimur Rahman Durjoy, a few national and first class cricketers were present. We decided to urge the BCB to consult with the DPL clubs about paying 50 percent payment of the players. For most the players, DPL is the only earning source and the situation is such that there is no guarantee whether it will be held in this year," CWAB secretary Debbroto Paul told the BSS on Wednesday.
