Umpire Sharif –ud- dowla Ibne shahid said about the reserve day, “the match will be started from the point it was stopped in the previous day. If any match will be curtailed due to rain or any unexpected situations it would not be lengthen again.” He also said, “If no ball is played in the allotted day, the match will be held after a new toss in the reserve day. If the field becomes earthy and is not suitable for play, the match can be transferred in a new venue on reserve day.”
Umpire Enamul Haque Moni informed that the whole league is going to be under one point system this time. He said, “Using one point table in the first leg, super leg and the relegation leg will soothe the complications of counting points. If points of more than one team will be same, we will consider the number of wins first, and then the result of face to face interactions, net run rate will be the ultimate choice. In case the net run rate is same then we will do the toss for determining.”
