No fixed criteria as yet

Post  Admin on Wed Aug 19, 2015 3:31 am

The governing council of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) yesterday announced the names of the companies who have expressed their interest in buying teams for the third edition of the competition, due to begin in late November.

The eleven companies are DBL Group, Sohana Group of Industries, Beximco, BBS Cables, Blues Communications, Networld Bangladesh Ltd, Mediacom (Square Group), Index Group, Bengal Communications, Axiom Technology Ltd and Fiber@home Limited.

In the second step, these companies will have to meet the governing council's financial terms and conditions by the end of this month and failing to do so will result in disqualifying them for the third step -- assigning the seven teams to the buyers. A fixed framework for this step however has yet to be constructed.

If more than seven organisations meet the financial demands, then the BCB will decide as to which companies will get the teams.

"We will select a criterion if that happens. We will look at the profile of the companies and figure out their contribution in sports," said governing council chairman Afzalur Rahman Sinha.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will also have the final say if more than one company wants to buy a particular franchise and there won't be any bidding involved.

Asked as to why the board decided against the bidding system, Sinha said, "As of now the companies will have to pay Tk 1 crore for the ownership of a franchise. We didn't want to go into a bid because the prices tend to spiral and we haven't had a good experience with that. They don't end up paying the entire money."

The latest system though did raise a few questions. For starters, what if there's favouritism involved while selecting the companies?

When the concern was brought to Sinha's attention, he said, "We will explain in detail as to why we selected a particular company. There won't be any problems."

Sinha also informed that the board had sold the media rights for the upcoming season to Channel 9. "Since Channel 9 was with us in the last two seasons and did well, we decided to sell it to them. They were the first ones to come forward. They also accepted our offer without any qualms," said Sinha.

With problems regarding the players' payment and the financial troubles between the franchises and the board from the first two seasons yet to be solved, there were rumours that the upcoming T20 competition could take place under a different name altogether.

However, Sinha quashed those claims and said it would be the third edition of the BPL."A large chunk of the players' payment will be made by the end of this month," said Sinha.

The continuation of the league also raises a question regarding the validity of Dhaka Gladiators as the champions of the second season, since a member of the franchise was found guilty of fixing. Sinha however said that they hadn't discussed this particular issue in the governing council's meeting yesterday.
