As the Bangabandhu BPL is gradually coming closer to us, the apex organization of Bangladesh Cricket-BCB has made a few decisions that might add a positive impact on the game. This year, the BPL has already undergone massive changes and BCB has kept the pace on. This time BCB has declared that each team, participating in Bangabandhu BPL, will have to pick at least one leg spinner from Bangladesh. Along with this, the BCB has decided to bring speedy pacers from overseas with a view to making the competition tougher and high class one.

Leg spinners, 140 Kmph Plus speedy pacers made mandatory in Bangabandhu BPL 2019-20
BPL governing body has hinted that each team will have to pick one leg spinner at least from the local sides and he will have to be bowled for the full quota of 4-over. In addition to that, BCB will give priority on picking up speedy pacers especially when it comes to selecting overseas bowlers.
President of BPL governing body Sheikh Sohel has said, “The main purpose of the tournament is to produce new players for Bangladesh. And for that, we are going to implement a few changes. We need leg spinners and we will make sure each team has at least one who will bowl 4-over in every match.”
He also added, “Among the international fast bowlers, we will give priority on those who can bowl 140 kilometers or even more. Picking up speedy bowlers will help our batters to face competitive and high-class cricket.”
In fact, these two changes will help Bangladesh cricket to a certain extent and if BCB can apply this, then it is certainly good news for us.
Few other changes…
BCB officials hinted few other changes as well. You already know, BCB has asked the franchise owner to be the sponsors of the teams. However, they will have a little bit to do in this BPL as BCB director Mahbub Anam said, “They will not be involved directly on team build-up. They will pay BCB to become the sponsors. We will follow the format of Big-Bash T20 this time.” In addition to that, the total number of venues has not been finalized yet and there is a high chance that the BPL might get delayed for one week.
