Dhaka: Bangladesh’s cricketers have called off their strike as the country’s cricket board accepted most of the demands, including a pay increase and other benefits.

The country’s top players led by Twenty20 skipper Shakib Al Hasan went on strike on Monday demanding better pay and conditions, putting the side’s planned tour of India from November 3 in jeopardy.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has agreed with most of the demands placed by the players, board president Nazmul Hasan said after a meeting on Wednesday night.

“We are joining the camp on Friday. The board has assured us that our demands will be fulfilled,” Shakib said.
