The season started with a 3-1 season, with the new Premier League coming up. Innovation is not just on the field, but on the field. External cricketers have been seen regularly in the Premier League, except for the first two seasons. Never once have there been one or two, even four foreign players per team.
This pattern has been changing for more than four decades. Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has said that no foreign players are in the Premier League this time. Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolitan (CCDM) chief Kazi Enam Ahmed said after the meeting with the clubs about the Premier League today, “No foreign cricketer plays in the National League-BCL. This decision will create more opportunities for local players. This year we want to give it a try and see how it works. The proposal has come from both the board and the club, both sides. ”
The Premier League has won many legends such as World Cup-winning Wasim Akram, Arjuna Ranatunga and Sanat Jayasuriya. Dhaka has not played any foreign cricketer in the Premier League season since the introduction of the ritual. However, according to former captain and now BCB match referee Rakibul Hassan, the Premier League has never been seen without a foreign cricketer, ‘I brought Pranab Roy (the son of Indian legend Pankaj Roy) to Mohammedan in a 3-4 season. I haven’t seen any breaks in this genre. Sometimes the number of foreign cricketers has changed. But there is a difference in style, I don’t remember it. ‘
The Dhaka Premier League will begin on March 7. The rest of the BKSP field and the international match in Mirpur are busy as three or four rounds will start in Cox’s Bazar and Chittagong, the CCDM chief said. Prior to that, the team was changed on March 5, and 9th. This time, the cricketers are getting the chance to pick a club like themselves. Since Bangladesh team will stay in Sylhet at this time. The CCDM desk will also be available in Sylhet to facilitate the team.
The CCDM hosted a Twenty20 tournament before the Dhaka Premier League last night. This time it will be. However, in a slightly different format. Kazi Enam said, “As the season starts a little late this year, the Twenty20 league will be after the Super League. We are doing this with the opinion of the clubs. The Twenty20 team will be comprised of six Super League teams. There they will have the opportunity to play five matches.
