Dhaka:

Bangladesh Cricket Board President A.H. Mustafa Kamal says he is surprised by claims that his board will be sued over its failure to pay players who took part in the inaugural Bangladesh Premier League.

In a report published Friday Tim May, the chief executive of the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations, claimed that the Bangladesh board and BPL franchises have failed to pay players but did not identify them.

May added that the federation has instructed lawyers in Bangladesh to start legal proceedings against the BCB.

But Kamal told The Associated Press on Saturday that the federation should have identified any players it claims had not been paid to help resolve any misunderstanding.

He also accused May of being "extreme" and making things "noisy."

The BPL concluded in February.
