'Sylhet Royals' turns into 'Comilla Legends'
The franchise owners of ‘Sylhet Royals’ has decided to change the name of their team to ‘Comilla Legends’ and it has been finalized by BPL Governing body. The Chairman of the franchise Nafisa Kamal has announced the matter clearly in an interview with NTV last night.
She also said about their preferred names as captain and coaches for the team. It is almost certain that the national ODI captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza will lead the side. India’s former captain Sourav Ganguly and Pakistan’s legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram are the probable candidates to occupy the position of coach and mentor in this team.
Ms Nafisa Kamal said, “We discussed with Sourav Ganguly and Wasim Akram; both of them have expressed their interest to work with our team. We have some other discussions in this regard before finalize the procedures.”
It is now a bit difficult to select the team as every franchise has to take players in the formula of ‘By Choice’; but Nafisa Kamal said Mashrafe Bin Mortaza is the in the top of their choice list for leading the team.
Among foreign cricketers, Pakistan all rounder Shahid Afridi and England hard hitter batsman Kevin Peterson might join in Comilla Legends.
