The BCB CEO said the board tried to contact the players immediately after the board president’s press conference on Tuesday and they were able to reach Tamim Iqbal.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury has invited the players to talk with the board at 5pm on Wednesday.
The BCB CEO said the board tried to contact the players immediately after board President Nazmul Hassan's press conference on Tuesday and they were able to reach national team opener Tamim Iqbal. "We requested Tamim to talk with us and told him that solving this financial matters was only a matter of time. He [Tamim] said he will talk to his teammates and let us know. So, we are expecting that they will contact us at any moment," he added.
Nizamuddin also said they have come to know that the players will discuss the board's stance today and that the BCB were available at 5pm on Wednesday to discuss the terms.
There were rumours about ODI captain of Bangladesh team Mashrafe Morataza being appointed as the negotiator between the board and the players, but the board has said they are not aware of anything like this.
Nizamuddin said the third round of National Cricket League starts from tomorrow and it was the board's request and the board are hoping to sit at any time possible.
The Bangladesh players have been on a strike since Monday with 11 demands and have announced that they will not participate in any cricketing activity until their demands are met.
BCB President Nazmul Hassan talked about the demands of the players at a press conference on Tuesday, where he said the strike might be a part of a bigger conspiracy to destabilise the country's cricket.
