Fifty-four players, including six foreigners, who played the first season of the Bangladesh Premier League are still without full payments from the six franchises, more than seven months after the tournament concluded.
Cricketers Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB), the players' representative body in the country, has put together the updated list of unpaid BPL cricketers and this is the first time any such list has been published.
The unpaid foreign players are
and Darren Stevens (Dhaka Gladiators),
Niall O'Brien and Herschelle Gibbs (Khulna Royal Bengals)
and Muttiah Muralitharan (Chittagong Kings).
Gibbs told ESPNcricinfo: "I have not been paid the full amount." But the South Africa batsman didn't disclose what percentage of payment he was still owed by the Khulna franchise. A source close to Muttiah Muralitharan has confirmed that he hasn't received 75% of his full payment, which amounts to $75,000.
