at least we will have better commentary on both tv and website. I just hope that modon laxman shivaramakrishna does not appear in any of the matches.

And their 'nephew' Shamim Chowdhury...

^^ Most likely Shamim will be there.
Not sure if Atahar will be in the commie box since he is with the management of one of the teams.

[B] Danny [B]

that name came into my mind first when i heard the news. He is one of those commies who could be really really crappy but also sensible when necessary. another one of same category is Pommy Mbangwa. Sick of Atahar, Shamim, Ranil and co. I hope some new local voices come up through this.

I am hoping 2 or 3 more Bangladeshi commentators will pop in this occasion along with Atahar and Shamim. Its our league. Let it be mostly in our way.

January 28, 2012, 07:19 AM
I have some questions in my mind...
1. Will ESPN share the telecast or they'll be the main broadcaster? i.e[বাংলা]কোন চ্যানেলের ক্যামেরা টীম কাজ করবে?[/বাংলা]
2. ESPN telecasts English Premiere League on Saturday and Sunday (occasionally on Friday also).. So in that case is it ESPN or Star Cricket which will telecast the match?

looks like no.

I prefer channel like eurosport to broadcast it because of english commentary

NTV UK will broadcast exactly what channel9 BD is broadcasting so the commentary is more likley to be in bengali.

NTV is free-to-air channel on sky satellite. all you need is sat dish and reciever and no subscription or no viewing card required.

Bangladesh Premier League cricket spreads its TV reach
Rebecca Hawkes ©RapidTVNews | 14-02-2012

Broadcasters in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Asia and the UK have now signed rights deals to televise action from the inaugural Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) cricket tournament, which began on Thursday (9 February).

Geo TV has become the BPL broadcast partner in Pakistan for three years. while opening season twenty20 (T20) BPL cricket will now be shown by Maharaja TV in Sri Lanka, SuperSport in South Africa, and CricOne in the Middle East and West Asia. In Britain, NTV UK will carry the Bengali feed of the tournament to serve the country's Bangladeshi expatriate population.

ESPN Star Sports acquired the broadcast rights for the BPL in India and across Asia last week, while Channel 9 will televise all the matches within Bangladesh. In total, 80 countries are now receiving TV coverage of the BPL.

Channel 9 Bangladesh, which owns the international broadcast rights for the tournament, has appointed Delhi-based events licensing company Sporty Solutionz as its global distribution partner.

"We have a three year deal with Channel 9, which is the broadcast rights holder for this league. They have given the licensing rights to us. We have picked the overseas broadcast rights excluding Bangladesh and subsequently we are distributing the event," said Ashish Chadha, chief executive, Sporty Solutionz.

Modelled on the Indian Premier League (IPL), the BPL comprises six teams - Barisal Burners, Chittagong Kings, Khulna Royal Bengals, Sylhet Royals, Dhaka Gladiators and Duronto Rajshahi - who will play each other twice in a round-robin format over 33 matches.

Big name international cricketers such as Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Herschelle Gibbs and Muttiah Muralitharan are all involved in the action, which takes place in Chittagong and Dhaka until 29 February.

Most days will feature either one or two matches, with the first beginning at 2pm local time and the second at 6.30 pm.

In Australia, the company was in talks with Setanta but things did not materialise.
