Sylhet Sunrisers pacer Taskin Ahmed on Tuesday claimed that there is no problem between him and the franchise regarding the payment issues.

“Nothing significant happened between me and Joy bhai (franchise member). It wasn’t a clash and it was more of a miscommunication. There were talks about it being cleared and I thought my payments will be paid in full before playing the full set of matches. Actually, there is a procedure and the payments will be cleared according to that procedure,” Taskin told reporters in Mirpur.

“It’s not a clash. I think it’s not even news material. I have talked to Joy bhai. From the BPL governing council, I’ve been told that I will receive the payments according to the procedure. I actually made that call to get information on the matter,” he added.

Bangladesh Premier League governing council member secretary Ismail Haider Mallick earlier on Monday informed that a cricketer wants to quit the tournament despite getting 70 percent of payment from the franchise to take part for them in the ongoing BBPL. Media later revealed that Taskin happens to be the player. A franchise is expected to clear 50 percent  payment before tournament while they are expected to clear the rest of the amount after the tournament.
