Summary

  • The ongoing turmoil in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is taking its toll not just on its member units, but on cricketers as well, particularly those in the domestic space, sources told The Telegraph.
  • Several Bengal senior team players, for example, haven’t been paid their dues for the 2018-19 season, despite playing in the three major competitions — Ranji Trophy, Vijay Hazare Trophy and the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy.
  • The Bengal players also claimed they haven’t yet received the portion they are entitled to get from sponsorship, which the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has to fork out.
  • CAB joint secretary Avishek Dalmiya, however, gave an assurance that the players’ dues would be cleared.
