DHAKA: The Bangladeshi cricket team has ended their strike after BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board)’s authorities agreed to their demands.
Test and Twenty20 captain Shakib al Hasan said, “The talk was successful.”
He said.”The BCB president and directors, who were here, heard our demand and they assured us they will meet them at the quickest possible time.”
The decision came as a relief for the BCB after the strike appeared set to endanger Bangladesh’s fruitful tour of India where Bangladesh would play three T20 and two Test matches beginning in November.
Shakib said, “Our players will start playing from Saturday and our national team players will join the camp (for India tour) from October 25.”
BCB president Nazmul Hassan said that they would meet most of the demands of the players.
