NZ, BANGLADESH CRICKET: The Int'l Cricket Council on Thursday allocated $1.8M "to crisis-hit New Zealand" as part of the Targeted Assistance and Performance Programme after the conclusion of its first board meeting of the year, according to the PTI. The New Zealand Cricket initiative will focus on a program "of 'A' Team cricket and the development of coaching and sports science expertise" (PTI, 1/31). ... Int'l cricket players "threatened Thursday to quit the Bangladesh Premier League as the troubled Twenty20 tournament was hit by a fresh dispute over pay."
