Cricketers in Bangladesh's main domestic league will see match fees almost double under a new deal that ended a player strike last week, the country's cricket body said on Monday.
Players in the top-tier of the National Cricket League will receive 60,000 taka (Dh 2,500) instead of 35,000 taka per four-day match, a Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) statement said.
Other expenses were also increased as part of the deal, which ended a three-day strike started by players last week. Payments for the second-tier of the competition were increased to 50,000 taka.
Players had demanded at least 100,000 taka per match. The action was called off after the Bangladesh accepted most of their demands.
The strike had cast doubt on a tour of India starting November 3, but the national squad is now due to leave on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Cricbuzz reported that Mushfiqur Rahim has decided not to keep wickets in Tests in-order to reduce his workload. Mushfiqur, 32, discussed his decision with coach Russell Domingo, who agreed with the move.
"I am not interested to keep wickets in Test. Now there are lots of games in the coming days and I play in all formats. Apart from international cricket I play in DPL [Dhaka Premier League] and BPL [Bangladesh Premier League]. Considering everything, I think it is getting a bit over-loaded," Mushfiqur was quoted as saying.
