DHAKA: In a stinging retort to the BCB's new rule that legspinners must bowl four overs in every innings of the Bangladesh Premier League, Shakib Al Hasan has said that the T20 league can not be expected to "make" players. The announcement was made in a press conference in Dhaka on Monday. The senior players are hugely disappointed after the recent changes in Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) where the board has abandoned the franchise model. Today the players invited journalists to the BCB Academy ground in Mirpur for a press conference where they announced their decision. Their boycott will continue until the BCB approves their 11-point demand.

He had reckoned that BPL should be played in the old franchise-based model. These, in addition to the salary cap applied to the Dhaka Premier League, although it used to be an open market for club-to-club transfer for players, for the last several years. None more than Shakib Al Hasan, the Test and T20I commander and Bangladesh's most praised cricketer, who said in an ongoing meeting that cricketers are "suppressed" and should be dealt with better. Bangladesh players are demanding the power to select the head of the association.

Al Hasan, the de facto leader of the revolt, said players called the strike as they wanted to "keep a good environment for the new generation so that Bangladesh cricket can move forward".

Shakib's position was adulated in many quarters, especially among the cricketers, in spite of the fact that the BCB didn't respond to his stinging analysis. "As as now, we have made a decision to send the women and age-level team", said Chowdhury. Players are very important for us and I will definitely communicate all their demands to the Board.

On the other hand, BCB has just learnt about this boycott. While their strike does put a question mark on their upcoming tour of India, BCCI president-elect Sourav Ganguly is confident that the players will sort the issue with the board and the series won't be affected. I think that discussion with players or a group of players will help cricket's development. "They are yet to tell us anything formally", said BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury.

The scheduled tour will be Bangladesh's second tour of India.

They have to play three T20 internationals and two Tests in India, with the first T20Ischeduled for November 3.
