Post  Admin on Tue Sep 06, 2016 10:38 pm

Bangladesh Premier League T20 2016 will have 7 yeams. franchise Sylhet Superstars have been removed from the league after the franchise had payment issues. Alif Group is going to lose its ownership. A new owner will own the Sylhet side. On the other hand, Rajshahi will enter in BPL 4.

Bangladesh Cricket Board CEO (Chief Executive Officer) Nizamuddin Chowdhury has informed the news. He said to Dhaka Tribune, “There has been a payment issue with Sylhet Superstars and the board will take further decision after consulting on the matter.

Current holders of Sylhet franchise, Alif Group is set to lose it’s ownership. So, the board has to look for another one.

“We have already received a few applications from interested firms and the board will decide after assessing all the aspects in the coming days,” BCB CEO added.

Sylhet Superstars have still left 3 to 4 crore takas to pay. BCB president Nazmul Hossain Papon gave the hope of giving bank guarantees. But it didn’t happen in the end.

It was heard that BPL 4 might have Khulna and Rajshahi. But only Rajshahi team are coming to BPL 2016. A reliable source has said it. Which means, seven teams will take part in this year’s BPL.

Duronto Rajshahi had participated in BPL 2012 and 2013, the first two BPL tournaments. They played in the Semi Finals in 2012.

The names of Sylhet and Rajshahi teams are not fixed yet. BCB will take decision about BPL on next board meeting.

Bangladesh Premier League 2016 will kick off on November 6 this year. This will be it’s fourth season. Comilla Victorians are the defending champions as they beat Barisal Bulls in BPL 2015 Final.
