The Federation of International Cricketers’ Association (FICA) has expressed its solidarity with the national and first-class domestic cricketers of Bangladesh yesterday.

The FICA chairman Tony Irish saying via a press release that the players’ strike was a ‘clear indication of the need for change in the way players are treated in what we regard as an important cricket country.’

“FICA commends the players in Bangladesh for their unity and for taking a stand together in order to secure fair conditions applicable to them as professional cricketers. This has happened despite the challenging environment for players to collectivize in Bangladesh and it is a clear indication of the need for change in the way players are treated in what we regard as an important cricket country,” the Executive of FICA said in a press release.

 “Given the collective nature of the issues we believe that it’s important for FICA to offer its support and assistance to the players during this time,” the FICA press release said.

The statement also reiterated that it wanted to review CWAB’s membership of FICA since they wanted to ensure that ‘member players' associations are both genuinely representative of current players and clearly independent from relevant governing bodies.’
