BPL renamed ‘Bangabandhu BPL’, BCB takes charge dropping franchises
These decisions were made on last Wednesday on September 11. Asked about the decisions, the spokespersons from BCB clarified all the queries. First of all, the tournament was renamed and the president of BCB has spoken about it as he said, “The main reason for renaming the tournament is- next year will be the 100th anniversary of the father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Thinking on that, we have decided to dedicate this BPL to his name.”
The BCB boss also talked about the dropping of franchises ahead of the season. He said, “We were supposed to sign new contracts with the franchises. They had some needs and claims that, we thought contradicted some of the basic principles of our module.”
He further said, “Apart from that, some of the franchises were not ready to go for two BPL in the same year. It felt as heavy pressure on them and we came forward to resolve this issue.”
BCB set to arrange BPL without the franchises this year 2019-20
