Competition will be more this time: Mosharraf

In a few days, Bangladesh’s biggest Cricket event Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) is about to begin and all the teams have started their practice sessions too. 

In this year’s BPL, five foreign players can be played in the main XI confirmed by the BPL’s Governing Council. As a result, the amount of local cricketers will decrease in the main XI.

This has been a thing to worry about and rightly so, Khulna Titans’ player Mosharraf Hossain Rubel is worried about that too. 

He said: “As there will be five foreign players, the local players will be less. But those who will perform, will get to play anyway. In the first season, five foreign players were played. In that time, the local players performed well too.”

Mosharraf also said there will be more competition this time as a result of more foreign players: “I hope that this time there will be good competition. Because there will be more foreign players. The local players have to concentrate more. They have to bat against bigger bowlers, they to bowl against bigger batsmen this time. So I think the competition will be more.”

Last time Khulna Titians finished in the Top 4 but this time their target is even bigger which is to play in the finals, informed by the spinner: “Our first target is to play in Top 4 and then to play in the final. But our beginning have to be good. If we start well in the tournament, then I think we can go far ahead.”
