And undoubtedly it has boosted the hype of the tournament. At least the crisis for the tickets in Sylhet proves it clearly. And once again it has raised the question why BCB are not going for the home and away system?
Many cricket critics marks it as one of most obvious reasons for which BPL is not getting its expected feed back. It is clear that if Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) can do it then it will not only make the tournament more exciting but will also be financially beneficial for the board.
Keeping this things in mind BCB is also planning to arrange the tournament more effectively. And the home and away system would be introduced in the sixth edition of BPL.
Ismail Haider Mollick, one of the member of BPL governing council member talked about it.
He said – “The more we spread the tournament, the event will be more successful. You know this tournament should be played in both home and away venues. But by considering our socioeconomic conditions we are not becoming able to make it possible. In sha Allah In next editions we try our best to arrange it at least in three venues.”
He also found out the challenges regarding the issue and added, “If we want to introduce the home and away basis, then we will have to arrange two matches each day in two different venues. But we have only four stadiums with the international facilities. So we will have to arrange BPL in Dhaka, Chittagong, Khulna and Sylhet.”
