BPL 2019-20: Organizers satisfied with high-scoring matches
There had been some low-scoring matches at the beginning of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL) 2019. Low-scoring matches like this cannot make a T20 league interesting at all.
So the organizers wanted some big scoring match.es BPL governing body hoped to see some runs in Chattogram after the first phase of Dhaka. It had been so. All the matches in Chattogram were big scoring. And Minhajul Abedin Nannu, the chief selector of the national cricket team, had been pleased with that.
This year, there had been 180+ scores in 11 matches till now, out of which nine had been in Chittagong. Apart from this, more than 200 runs had been scored in five matches, all of them at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.
Nannu recently told reporters,
“Everybody wants to have more runs in T20 cricket. Chattogram episode is successful in this regard. Viewers here enjoy the match. As well as more runs, the confidence of the batsmen increases.”
He added, “The challenge is different for cricketers in different venues. The batsmen have struggled to get runs in Dhaka, but they have done well in Chittagong. They can face challenging wickets in Sylhet.”
Several youngsters had been doing well in this year’s BPL. The chief selector said, “They have to continue this form to get a chance in the national team. Some young players are doing great. But they need to continue this form. There are many differences between domestic cricket and international cricket. As we have seen, many have done well in domestic cricket but have done poorly in international matches.”
