KARACHI - The legal action threat issued by the Federation of International Cricketers Association (FICA) to the Bangladesh Cricket Board over non-payment of dues to the players who took part in the Bangladesh Premier League apparently has had its effects.
Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi on Tuesday said he finally received his dues from the BPL two days back in full. "I got my full dues two days back from the BPL," said Afridi, who was one of the most expensive players purchased in the players bid for the tournament that was held early this year in Bangladesh.
Afridi, who only played in the semi-final and final for Dhaka and had a price of around $700,000 in the bid, said he had enjoyed his experience of playing in the BPL. Another player, who was awaiting his dues but didn't wish to be identified, also confirmed to have received his dues. "Yes I have come to know that other players have also started receiving their dues from Bangladesh," he said.
