Mushfiqur, who retired from T20Is last year, now has Test and ODI contracts while Shorful Islam has ODI and T20I contracts. Tamim Iqbal, like Mushfiqur, has one Test and one ODI contract, and only two in this category.
However, there was no place for Shadman Islam, Yasir Ali, Mahmudul Hasan Joy and Mohammad Nayeem in any category.
BCB’s chairman of cricket operations Jalal Yunus said Zakir and Mahmood have been rewarded for their improvement over the past year, while the board expects Joy, who broke down in the early parts of 2022, to secure the next contract. Will take it up a notch. The year.
“We tried hard to get Mahmudul Hasan Joy last year. It’s not a discouragement, but we want him to earn the place back. We are not giving up on him. He can come back, but he will have to work hard. Non- contract players are clearly available [for selection],
As is the norm, the BCB did not reveal the salaries of the players, but ESPNcricinfo understands that all 21 cricketers will get a marginal increase in their monthly salaries this year. It is also unlikely that the BCB did not increase the match fees as they are usually increased once every two years, so this year there had to be a hike.
