Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hasan Papon met with the players today at the team hotel, before briefing the media.

The division between two senior cricketers, Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, led to separate "groups" within the team, according to the BCB president, who made this statement in an explosive interview on Saturday.

In the interview, he made the claim that the conflict between the two celebrities had also led to an unsanitary dressing room. He clarified a few of his earlier statements when speaking to the media on Monday.

"That the dressing room environment is not good is something I heard from outside. I heard about it the most from the media. Media personnel talk about it the most.

I saw that everything was okay in the World Cup in Australia and did not hear of any dressing room problems. I haven't heard of anything before and what I have heard, Tamim said the same thing. I asked if they have any issues and they convinced me that it won't affect their game. That's what I said in the interview," he said.
