BCB announce pay hike for players as part of a new deal

Bangladesh Cricket Board on Monday rewarded its cricketers with a pay hike as part of a deal that ended their deadlock last week.

The players in the top league of Bangladesh's main domestic tournament, who received 35,000 taka earlier for a four-day match, will now get 60,000 taka ($705).

The other expenses of cricketers were also raised as part of a deal which called off a three-day strike by the Bangladesh players.

Second-tier competition has also gone through a pay raise, with players set to get up to 50,000 Taka.

Bangladesh players had earlier gone on strike where they had demanded up to 100,000 taka per game.

The strike had put doubts over their tour of India next month, but with the terms accepted, players are set to leave on Wednesday.
