Hodge keen to play in Bangladesh Premier League despite non-payments
Melbourne: Brad Hodge is keen to play another season in the Bangladesh Premier League despite mounting concerns over player non-payments.
Appearance fees not being paid among those initially affected Hodge and fellow Australia internationals Brad Hogg and Shane Harwood.
The issue remains ongoing with the Federation of International Cricketer`s Associations issuing a statement today urging players not to nominate for draft for the second season of the BPL which will take place in December, due to unpaid player payments from the first BPL held in February.
Hodge, Hogg and Harwood have all now received monies owed.
Gerard Sholly, who manages both Hodge and Harwood, said the 37-year-old Hodge had no problem playing in the second edition of the BPL in January, as long as it didn’t clash with Australia’s domestic T20 tournament The Big Bash.
Sholly said Harwood, 38, was no longer playing internationally.
