The President added, “Whether the national players are available or not. we will organize this tournament every year and I firmly believe this will go on. This will happen along with the Premier League or even if there is no Premier League this tournament will still go on. We wanted to arrange such a tournament for a long time”
To be hopeful for this initiative, “The best part is that it was quite competitive, even without national players or overseas cricketers. And people are following it. 61 cricketers made their debuts in T20 cricket and we believe (it) is a great achievement. And among them, some of them are quite talented. We feel someday they might even play in the national team,”
The result of first DPL twenty 20 league
The result of first DPL twenty 20 leagues, Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi club beats Prime Doleshar by 24 runs.
Farhad Reza, the captain of Prime Doleshwar the runners-up team. “We didn’t get enough chances to play the matches in BPL. The foreigners mainly dominated the BPL. If you can’t play at least 10 to 15 matches in this format throughout the year, (then) how can you understand the nature of the format? So it’s a good tournament for all local players. I think performance in this tournament will give us more exposure in BPL too,”
On the other hand, Nurul Hasan, the captain of the champion team. Sheikh Jamal club, “In India, there are a lot of T20 tournaments for their local players. So they learn to play well in the format and later make their presence in IPL as well as T20 Internationals. Finally, we also got such a tournament exclusively for the local players.
”It is always tough to play all matches in the BPL. Because every franchise wants to win the trophy. so they emphasize on foreign players to bolster their top order or on the bowling front. As we have now this sort of a tournament. I hope our players will also thrive in this format,” he concluded.
Therefore, BCB announced DPL t-20 permanent as a domestic tournament. Hope, the initiative come true on for the Bangladesh cricket.
