Revenue sharing and similar provisions for women cricketers added to players' demands

Bangladesh's first-class, List A and national cricketers put forward an updated list of demands through a spokesperson at a Dhaka hotel on Wednesday evening.

The cricketers had announced on Monday that they would boycott cricketing activities unless an 11-point demand be met by the Bangladesh Cricket Board.

Two days later, Magistrate Mustafizur Rahman Khan spoke on the cricketers' behalf and added two more demands to the 11 placed by the cricketers -- a revenue sharing model similar to what the Australian cricketers have negotiated through the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) and that women's cricketers of the country be afforded the same provisions where commercially and practically viable. 

There was also an addition to the demand that the committee of the Cricketers' Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB) resign immediately. The cricketers now want the formation of a professional cricketers association similar to those in England and Australia in order to negotiate matters with the board.
