বিপিএল হচ্ছে বাংলাদেশে


ক্রীড়া প্রতিবেদক
কেউ এটাকে নিতান্তই ভারতের ঘরোয়া লীগ বলে নাক সিঁটকাচ্ছেন। কেউ বলছেন, টাকা উড়িয়ে ক্রিকেটকে সর্বনাশের পথে ঠেলে দিচ্ছে। অর্থের মোচ্ছব হচ্ছে ভারতের আইপিএলে। দেশের কথা ভুলে সব যাচ্ছে আইপিএলে টি২০ খেলতে। তবে কোটিপতি আইপিএলের একটি বাস্তবতা মেনে নিয়েছেন অনেকেই। আর সেটি হলো, বিশ্বের তারকাদের ভিড়িয়ে আইপিএল ক্রিকেটের বিশ্বায়নই ঘটিয়েছে। বিভিন্ন দেশ থেকে ক্রিকেটাররা ভারতে ছুটছেন আইপিএলের দিকে। আর এ আইপিএলের ষোলো আনা সুফল ভোগ করছে ভারত। আর তাই ভারতের পথই অনুসরণ করতে যাচ্ছে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট। একই সঙ্গে নতুন প্রতিভাবান ক্রিকেটার তুলে আনা এবং আর্থিক লাভের পথ খুলতেই এ বছরের ডিসেম্বর কিংবা আগামী জানুয়ারিতে মাঠে গড়াতে যাচ্ছে বাংলাদেশ প্রিমিয়ার লীগ বা বিপিএল। 'আমরা দেখেছি আইপিএলের মাধ্যমে ভারতীয় ক্রিকেট আজ কোথায় চলে গেছে। নতুন নতুন প্রতিভাবান ক্রিকেটার পেয়েছে ভারত। বিশ্বকাপ জয়ের পেছনেও তাদের আইপিএলের একটা ভূমিকা রয়েছে। আর তাই আমরাও পিছিয়ে থাকতে রাজি নয়। আইপিএলের মতোই বিপিএল করার চিন্তা করছে বোর্ড। জুনের মধ্যেই এ ব্যাপারে একটি কমিটিকে সব পরিকল্পনা তৈরির দায়িত্ব দেওয়া হয়েছে। আশা করছি জুলাইয়েই বিপিএলের সময় নির্ধারণ করতে পারব। আপাতত ছয় দলকে নিয়ে বিপিএল আয়োজন করার কথা ভাবা হচ্ছে এবং এ ব্যাপারে বিদেশি কোনো ইভেন্ট ম্যানেজমেন্ট কোম্পানিকে দায়িত্ব দেওয়া হবে।' বিসিবি প্রেসিডেন্ট আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামালের বিশ্বাস, বিপিএলের জৌলুস কোনো অংশেই আইপিএলের চেয়ে কম হবে না।
যদিও আইপিএলের নিয়মে চার বিদেশি খেলার সুযোগ পেলেও বিপিএলে তিন বিদেশির কথা ভাবা হচ্ছে এবং ঢাকার বাইরে যেসব স্টেডিয়ামে ফ্লাডলাইট রয়েছে সেখানেও বিপিএলের ম্যাচ আয়োজন করা হতে পারে। সেক্ষেত্রে চট্টগ্রামকে অবশ্যই গুরুত্ব দেওয়া হবে। এর আগে বিপিএল না হলেও চট্টগ্রাম পোর্ট সিটি লীগ বা পিসিএল মাঠে গড়িয়েছিল। তবে সেটি বিসিবির কোনো টুর্নামেন্ট ছিল না। এনসিএল টি২০ গতবার সফলভাবে আয়োজন করা হলেও সেটি বিশ্বায়নের মাত্রা পায়নি দেশীয় সম্প্রচার সংস্থা নিয়োজিত থাকায়। এবার কিন্তু টেন্ডারের মাধ্যমে আন্তর্জাতিক মানের ইভেন্ট ম্যানেজমেন্ট কোম্পানিকে বিপিএল পরিচালনার দায়িত্ব দেওয়া হবে। ভারতের আইপিএল আয়োজন করছে আইএনজি নামে একটি সংস্থা। এছাড়া শ্রীলংকায় এসএলপিএল আয়োজন করতে যাচ্ছে সিঙ্গাপুরভিত্তিক সংস্থা সমারসেট এন্টারটেইনমেন্ট। বিসিবি চাইছে, এদেরই কেউ দায়িত্ব নিক বিপিএল আয়োজনের। এরাই সম্প্রচারের দায়িত্ব নিয়ে পুরো আসর আকর্ষণীয় করে তুলবে।
বিসিবির লক্ষ্য, বিপিএল মাঠে গড়াতে পারলে অন্তত আড়াইশ' মিলিয়ন ডলার আয় করা যাবে। আর বিপিএলের দলগুলোকে পৃৃষ্ঠপোষকতা করার জন্য বিদেশি সংস্থাগুলোকেও আহ্বান করা হবে। পাঁচ বছরের জন্য কোনো কোম্পানি দল কিনতে পারবে এবং নিলামে প্রত্যেক ক্রিকেটারকে তিন বছরের জন্য কিনতে পারবে সে দল। বিদেশি ক্রিকেটারদের আনার ব্যাপারেও একটি নির্দিষ্ট মান নির্ধারণ করে দেওয়া হবে। প্রতিটি দলেই অনূর্ধ্ব লেবেলের কিছু ক্রিকেটার রাখা বাধ্যতামূলক করা হবে। তবে এসবই এখনও 'হবে হবে' পর্যায়ে। বিসিবি প্রেসিডেন্টের বিশ্বাস, বিদেশি ইভেন্ট ম্যানেজমেন্টের ব্যাপারটি ঠিক হয়ে গেলে ক্রিকেটের আগামী মৌসুমেই বাংলাদেশিরা বিপিএলের স্বাদ নিতে পারবেন।

Perhaps, Lotas forgot that Dhaka league once upon a time was what IPL is today where players like Akram, Arjuna, Afridi, Heath Streak, Jayasuriya like player got their paycheck.Heck even Yuvraj Singh played at 'Corporate leage'. Chittagong league attracted Shoaib Akhter, Razzaque, A. Blizzard, Malik... Why do we need a BPL when DPL and PCL already did it successfully?

After IPL, the equation is now changed... unless there are money in the 100,000s, you wont get star players and the world already has too many cricket going on...So, dream on ( but find a national coach first..)

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) stepped ahead with their grand plan to organise the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), a domestic Twenty20 cricket league in the mode of Indian cash-rich IPL. The cricket board has already approached an Indian company to give them the liability of the tournament for the coming three years, revealed a reliable source of BCB. The cricket apex body however claimed Tk. 75 crore from the company.
The BCB earlier in the last year organised NCL Twenty20 which drew a lot of attraction and created a great enthusiasm. But unfortunately the board could not stick with the league this year, largely due to the ICC Cricket World Cup.
Therefore the cricket affluent body tried to come up with more innovative league. That’s why the NCL Twenty20 is now transformed into BPL Twenty20.
The board though is yet to find an appropriate time slot for holding the tournament but they are in series of discussions to organise it ahead of the Dhaka Premier Division Cricket starts off.
The board also wants to include the tournament in the domestic cricket calendar and the discussion is still going on in this connection.
Though it is yet to fix how many teams will play in the league, it is almost decided that six to eight teams will play. The leading corporate house of the country could buy the team from the BCB but they would have to pay more than a crore taka to buy the franchise.
Each franchise could register three foreigners and BCB will decide their value, sources said.
It was learnt that two board directors were given the onus to look after the matter and earned the nod from the ICC to organise the tournament. The two directors now are in Dubai to get the nod from the world cricket apex body.

Those who are doubting about size of paycheck should know that Sheikh Jamal is planning to play Dhaka league first time and they are going to spend 5 crores taka according to club officials. And it is just for a city based cricket tournament. BPL will generate more money than SlPL. Good tv deal alone can get us some million dollars. Plus there are revenue from ticket income and lucrative sponsorship. A properly broadcast and hyped tournament will really attract our fans. This will be a good tournament if happens.

Why every single T20 tournament has to be named some Premier League? Why can't it be something else like Bangladesh Cup, Dhaka Cup or even better Bangabandhu Championship ;)? Australia used to call their t20 championship Big Bash, now they added League to it. PPL, SPL, BPL- the cricket world is lacking in imagination. I am sure BPL will be a carbon copy of IPL with cheer leaders and crappy commentators.

Absolutely, people say that players join the sports because of their love. I say it is moot. Unless you have huge sums of money, not many young cricketers will come into the business.

I have heard from some of my elder brothers, that there used to be a kid who was about 20 times better than Shahriar Nafees when they were 15-16. But the other kid could not pursue a full time career as it wasn't very certain income. Instead he opted for a 40,000 tk accountant's job.

Unless we can have 150~ cricketers earning significantly more than the average joe, we will always strive to keep the potential cricketers in the business. More money, greater pool, greater squad.

Also, I don't think a whole new competition needs to be created, just re structure the NCL T20, auction the franchisees, give it to Lalit Modi and see what happens.

Now i havent heard sheikh jamal in cricket....?
are u talking abt dhaka football league, if then, its more sad coz the same amount of money isnt invested in cricket....
btw, can anyone enlighten me who is the highest earning player in our football league.....if cricket really is to overcome, then the highest earning player should easily earn 5-10 fold times more than football......go to India, and see if any football leagues pay higher than IPL....whereas overhere we r still finding payment in football being more than cricket...that sucks now...considering we need youngsters to play cricket

I with the Guidance of my economic teacher have tried to make a model to judge what would be the price of IPL style league if started in various countries. Obviously the base of the calculation is IPL.

The various factors taken into account are
1. Interest level in country (Very difficult to define. News space is the best indicator)
2. Population
3. Per Capita income
4. No of teams in the tournament
5. Security Factor of country
6. Infrastructure, i.e stadiums, whether held in one stadium or on Home or Away, D&N facility available etc)

My calculation threw the value of SLPL as 1.5M$/year (Actual is 1.75 M$)
Aus:- 100 M$ (Indicators point to 90M$ of Melbourne and Sydney)

For BD
1. 6 Teams, 1 stadium:- 2M$/Franchisee (For 10 years)
2. 6 Teams, Home and Away:- 8.1 M$
3. 8 Teams, 1 stadium:- 1.1 M$
4. 8 Teams, Home and Away:- 4.5 M$

Still need fine tuning, but they surely tell you a range in what price range our franchise would land

On the salary part, based on type of Tournament, the max salary could vary between 20K to 85K $. My guess of highest Salary would be 50k$

Still working and fine tuning. Any thing better comes up will surely keep you guys updated

Well obviously everybody wants it Big. If if was in hands of fans they would make it bigger than IPL, but that is how it doesn't work.
It is the economics that works behind it. People who put money want to make profit and the ROI should be more than what ROI they would have got putting in bank.
For my calculations I checked the online newspapers of India, Bangladesh etc and found that interest level in Bangladesh to be 20% more than that in India. So even with high level of interest it is the size of the economies and various factor (Mentioned in previous posts) that have governed the prices.

The best is if BPL has 6 teams and they work on Home and Away model. That will get 69.6 M$ for BCB (11.6 M$/Franchise) or 6.96 M$/ year as compared to 1400 M$ what BCCI got from IPL (for 10 years or 140 M$/year)

If you have all the matches in one or two stadiums then they are bound not to be filled. Afterall fans also have their limits. For the love of game they will not watch all the games.

Great marketing is not required. Simply have Home and Away games. You create local fan base and in each stadiums less number of matches. More people come to watch the matches.

Hey dude I posted that in this thread. I am working on a project in which I am trying to develop a model for calculating the details. The parameters kindly check the post no #31.

The highest salary as per my model depending upon what type of tournament (6 or 8 teams, Home and Away or matches in one stadium) would vary from 20K to 85K. (Revised model says 25K (if a 8 team, 1 or 2 stadium) to 125K (6 Team, Home and Away model)
Most likely it would be of the range of 50 to 75K IMHO

Good amt of money comes if the foreign audiences watch it too. Alone home audience is not enough. SLPL will be able to sustain because it will be popular in Pak besides SL too. Also it will be broadcast almost in all test nations.

NCL T20 was just in BD. The coverage on cricinfo was pathetic and knowledge of tournament was pathetic outside BD. These things should improve and hopefully BPL can provide that

Why does it have to be named like IPL? Copying doesn't produce original quality.

BPL, the name is borrowed from IPL. But NCL is our own. So we can arrange NCL like BPL. It would be good no need to copy name from others.

Has the tournament got official ICC T20 status?

I think naming it BPL on lines of IPL gives it automatic publicity. SLPL has been talked about in media because of the P. Media reported the SL to have tournament on lines of IPL. Hence it is a way of using the Halo effect (Yes I am from marketing). If you name it NCL then you will have to create a brand.
In BPL get some decent players like SLPL did and people will tune in for some matches and broadcasters will be willing to broadcast abroad coz of that Halo effect

It was true ICL also had a appeal from people. Though they indroduced these kind of tournament they could create attraction to the people because of their planning. But they were bound to stop their league because BCCI and ICC opposed it.

When IPL was started as new league and with a new system it got popularity from the begining. Those two teams got popularity with new names.

I'm not the student of marketing or never stadied marketing. But from those two above examples I have understood that if you organise correctly it make automatically publicity the name who you give.

Creativity is always respected not copying.

It is not copying dude. It would be called reapplication. Obviously BCB will add local flavor. Anything BCB will make will be popular in BD. Even NCL was well received but the difference comes when you have to break the other markets. So in that aspect "P" will help

Innovation and creativity can come in the tournament format like Big Bash is using "Super Over", "2 Bouncers", "Balls take away by crowds". Similarly BCB should introduce such innovations mat=ybe like "Designated Hitter" or "One super match (If you win you take 4 pts instead of 0)" or ""Choose the bowler" for one over from a list given before the match or any such innovations. This would mean people who watch a match will be caught by the hype around it. I think these are the things that will make more difference

Mate, actually I like your posts because these are iformative. We have packnowledge that when India intoduce anything it makes more appeal than others. Because they have a grand market. They can easily attract all over the cricket world which isn't possible for other countries.

If you want to get market playing cricket you have to get market in India. IMO this is the main fact followed India by others.

ATN BANGLA knows of their viewer are Bangladeshi. They don't need to compete with other international chanel. So they don't need to improve their quality as a Bangladeshi you are bound to watch it.

It has been learnt that PCB’s Director Domestic Cricket Zakir Khan told players they can only appear in the BPL T20 league if they write to the board that they no longer want to play for Pakistan and in Pakistan. http://www.thenews.com.pk/TodaysPrintDetail.aspx?ID=86714&Cat=10

Whaow!!! Now that's rude. So, I guess we won't be seeing any Paki players in BPL. Seeing Indian players is also very slim atleast the ones in the national team. But hope to see off-form Paki players atleast like Rana Naved,Shoaib Malik,Mohammed Sami.

That's a very good news that pak won't involve. Otherwise, math fixing would take place as well as teaching our modon players how to cheat.

I heard around 14 Indian players will be added to the list. That'll be a big boost if we can get the likes of Yusuf Pathan, Tiwary, Dravid & Co.

We could do with:

Sri Lanka: Jayawardene, Sangakarra and Malinga

New Zealand: Vettori, McCullum and Taylor

Australia: Warner, Cummins, Lee, Marsh, Husseys etc

I don't get why will all the matches be held in 2 stadiums only? Shouldn't the teams have their own home ground? BCB should use this chance to get more grounds going in other parts of the country. Get the owners get their own stadiums.

That will take time plus there is not enough quality hotels in those areas. Not to mention the communication problem.
