This year the preparation has been started a bit early by the Governing Body of BPL and keeping up with the pace, the players draft will be held this Saturday.
Though many players have already been assigned for this season’s BPL and the icon players have been also signed up by the teams making their work much easier.
The players draft ceremony is to be held at the grand ballroom of Radisson blu water garden hotel, Dhaka.
The grand BPL is about to start from 5th November and this year seven teams will participate in the tournament. Sylhet Sixers are the newest franchise to be joined in the competition.
Due to some financial issues this year Barisal Bulls won’t be seen in the competition.
This year Mustafizur Rahman has been named as the icon player for the first time and he was taken straight away by the Barisal Bulls. Since the team has been rejected from the tournament, Mustafiz won’t be able to play as an icon this year.
