REUTERSThe Bangladesh cricketers went on strike on Monday (Oct 21), saying that they wouldn’t take in any cricket activity until their demands are addressed by their board. While their strike does put a question mark on their upcoming tour of India, BCCI president-elect Sourav Ganguly is optimistic about the immediate resolve of this issue and the series will not be affected, reports The times of India.
“It is their internal matter, but they will sort out, they will come,” the former Indian captain said when asked if the strike could affect the series.
Asked if he would discuss about this matter to Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in capacity of BCCI president, Ganguly marked it as an internal matter, “I speak to the BCB, but this doesn’t come under me,” he explained.
The internal sources of BCB are hoping that the matter will come to resolution soon.
Earlier on Monday, tigers gathered at BCB Academy ground to put forward an 11-point demand and announcement of strike boycotting all cricket activities.
The tour is scheduled to begin at Delhi with T-20 series on Nov 3.
