Duronto, Gladiators survive axeStaff Correspondent
Duronto Rajshahi and Dhaka Gladiators, the two Bangladesh Premier League franchises in danger of being thrown out, looked to have survived after paying a large sum of their dues, said the officials.
Duranto cleared the entire money they owed to the Bangladesh Cricket Board on Thursday, while Gladiators, champions in the first edition, also paid a large portion of their dues, said Mahbub Anam, who heads the committee on BPL.
The move from the franchises came after the BCB on October 26 withheld the two sides for not paying their dues to the BCB and the BPL event-management firm ‘Game On’.
The Board later formed a three-member committee headed by its vice-president Anam, to look into the financial irregularities.
Anam on Thursday informed that Duranto Rajshahi paid Tk 2.1 crore that cleared all of their debts while Dhaka Gladiators paid Tk 1.05 crore with a little amount still left to be paid.
‘We have received all the due money from Duranto Rajshahi and the Dhaka gladiators have also paid almost all of their dues,’ said Mahbub Anam.
Mahbub Anam also informed that they are yet to get Tk 8 lakh from Khulna Royal Bengals.
