The sixth edition of the BPL started in a dull way and faced a lot of criticism at the beginning. The tournament kicked-off just after the generation election of the country. So the hype for this season’s BPL was less than the earlier ones. But as the tournament progressed, things started changing.
With better technology and better pitches, the tournament started to deliver thrilling encounters. Chittagong Vikings, who were not a strong team on paper were at the top of the points table at a stage. Comilla also didn’t start off well under the captaincy of Steve Smith.
But things started to go in favour of Comilla after the local stars started to perform. They grabbed 14 points and were at second in the points table and qualified for the play-offs. And they went onto the qualify in the final after beating Rangpur Riders comfortably in the Qualifier 1 match.
While on the other hand, Comilla’s opponent in the final Dhaka Dynamites had to struggle a lot to play in the final. Shakib Al Hasan’s men were also out of the tournament after losing five games in a row. They had to win their last two games to book a place for the play-offs. And in the end, they successfully won to qualify.
Dhaka then went onto play-offs and won both the eliminator and the qualifier 2 to play their third straight final. But in the end, they had to be on the losing side as Tamim’s blistering knock blew all hopes of winning the title.
After winning their second title, Comilla players including all the coaching staff celebrated crazily in the team bus and at the hotel. The sixth edition of the BPL has been a tournament to remember for a long time.
