Bangladesh's players' association, the Cricketers' Welfare Association of Bangladesh (CWAB), has been given full membership of the Federation of International Cricketers' Association ( FICA).

The CWAB was established in 2004 with a primary objective of promoting and protecting the general welfare of cricketers within the country, and it also engages in numerous projects for the benefit of the wider community.

All first-class cricketers registered with the Bangladesh board are entitled to be members of CWAB. It currently has around 170 players on its books.

"I am delighted to welcome CWAB as a member of FICA," Tim May, FICA's chief executive, said. "Bangladesh are young in International cricketing experience and have much to offer the world of cricket. FICA believe it is imperative that the players' positions and concerns of all countries are represented with equal vigor to the ICC and the addition of CWAB to our membership obviously is a significant step to achieving this objective."
