The Federation of International Cricketers' Association (FICA) said yesterday it will join players in legal action over unpaid wages by the Bangladesh Premier League, calling the situation "a joke"

Bangladesh’s inaugural Twenty20 league was held in February and attracted a host of overseas players, including Australians, but at least 12 have not been paid their full dues, amounting to over US$600,000, FICA said.

In addition, local Bangladeshi players have received, on average, less than 60 percent of their wages, with only eight paid what they are owed.
