Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan Papon announced a cash bonus of Tk 35 lakh for the women’s team on Sunday following the team’s success against India.
The Tigresses registered their first win against India in ODIs and drew the series 1-1 after being beaten 2-1 in T20I series.
“Normally we give bonuses when we win a series, but since we won our first ODI against India and there were a few individual performances like Fargana Hoque who scoring a century, we decided to give Tk 25 lakh for the players,” Papon told reporters.
“We will also give Tk 2 lakh bonus to the player, who scored hundred and other cricketers individually. I think the total amount of bonus will be around Tk 35 lakh including bonus for the coaching staff,” he added.
The BCB boss, however, was not willing to comment on the controversial remarks by the Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur during the post-match presentation ceremony following the third ODI.
“Cricket is such a game where everyone knows its rules and regulations and the entire world has witnessed what happened. So we have nothing to say as there are rules and regulations and those will imply accordingly. We have nothing to say since there is a match referee and umpires and the ICC will take necessary steps. But I am happy to see that our girls didn’t do anything such,” he added.
