Bangladesh Players Call off Strike, to Return to Action on October 25
Bangladesh's cricketers have called off their strike, which they had announced on Monday (October 21), after being guaranteed by the BCB that their demands would be addressed.
The players will be back to action in the National Cricket League from Friday.
The players, including seniors like Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal, had announced a boycott of all cricketing activity calling for better pay and benefits among other demands. The players' decision had put in doubt their tour of India due to start in early November.
Their demands include a 50 percent pay hike for first-class players, the expansion of national pay contracts, increased match fees in domestic four-day and 50-over games, and better benefits for grounds staff.
On Wednesday, the players met the board officials, following which they called off the strike.
