Statement from Chairman CCDM Kazi Inam Ahmed: “Yesterday I attended a meeting with CWAB and several national team and first-class cricketers. We spoke at possible start of DPL season. At this point we can’t confirm a date but want the DPL clubs to be in regular touch virtually with players to make sure the players can maintain fitness.
The clubs should be prepared to start the league when the situation is suitable with a short notice of 15 days. I suggested Cox’s Bazar or BKSP as alternate venues and that all players and club management accommodation can be arranged with strict measures of isolation.
Also players of Brothers Union and Partex raised concerns that they have not received payments this season. CCDM had already advised the clubs to pay 50% payment before the start of the league started despite the fact that players’ payments this season are under direct contract with teams. We hope once cricket resumes in the country we will have DPL to start with and this is something even the board President has said in several previous conversation.”
