One thread for all discussion makes it very heavy.
I think we should have all our BPL 2 discussions on a separate thread and let BPL 1 rest in peace after 80 pages.

So, talk away.

If mods want to merge some of the BPL 2 discussions from the previous discussion thread, I think you might draw the line from post # 1976 (MH Rubel bhai's post) and merge it here.

Tbh not getting good feel about bpl2, there will be plenty empty seats. Why they so obsessed playing matches in only SBNCS and ctg? Why can't each bpl teams play its home matches in their own divisional stadium? you can't the expect the rangpuris and sylhetis and others to travel 10+ hours or something to watch their team play in CTG in huge numbers, many poor fans can't afford the coast and time!!

2. Chittagong Kings
3. Duronto Rajshahi
4. Barisal Burners
5. Sylhet Royals
6. Rangpur Riders
7. Khulna Royal Bengals

Home and away for all teams is impossible for a tournament lasting only 3 weeks, barring semi/final and opening ceremony...and then there are travel allocated for 6 days...if it was a 2 month tournament like IPL then you can do all home and away games. Some places don't have proper transportation and 5 star accommodation like in Rangpur....

Why is it impossible to play home and away system in comparing to IPL? More than 50 matches are held in IPL where BPL is a tournament of less than 25 matches. BCB can arrange all league matches home and away basis where semi final and final will be held in Dhaka.

[বাংলা]পিটারসেনের খোঁজে রাজশাহী
সমকাল | বুধবার | ২৬ ডিসেম্বর ২০১২ (http://www.samakal24.com/details.php?news=18&action=main&menu_type=&option=single&news_id=316520&pub_no=1269&type=)

নিলামের পরদিনই সবাইকে অবাক করে দিয়ে বিপিএল দ্বিতীয় আসর থেকে নাম প্রত্যাহার করে নিয়েছিলেন শ্রীলংকার তারকা পেসার লাসিথ মালিঙ্গা। তার সঙ্গে আরও কয়েকটি নাম যোগ হয়েছে অনাগ্রহীদের তালিকায়। কিন্তু বিপিএলের জন্য সুখবর হলো, বিশ্বক্রিকেটের এ মুহূর্তের সেরা তারকাদের একজন কেভিন পিটারসেনকে দেখা যেতে পারে দ্বিতীয় আসরে।
ইংলিশ সুপারস্টারকে দলে ভেড়ানোর চেষ্টা চালিয়ে যাচ্ছে দুরন্ত রাজশাহী। ফ্র্যাঞ্চাইজি মালিক মুশফিকুর রহমান মোহন জানান, আলোচনা অনেকদূর এগিয়েছে। পিটারসেন বিপিএল খেলার ব্যাপারে আগ্রহী। শিগগিরই ইতিবাচক একটা খবর দিতে পারবেন বলেও জানান দুরন্ত রাজশাহীর মালিক। ইংল্যান্ডের আন্তর্জাতিক সূচির কারণেই তার বিপিএলে অংশ নেওয়ার সম্ভাবনা আরও বাড়ছে। ভারতের বিপক্ষে টেস্ট সিরিজের পর টি২০ থেকে বিশ্রাম দেওয়া হয়েছে তাকে। অবশ্য জানুয়ারিতে ওয়ানডে সিরিজে খেলবেন তিনি। তবে ফেব্রুয়ারিতে নিউজিল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে টি২০ এবং ওয়ানডে থেকে পিটারসেনকে বিশ্রাম দেওয়া হয়েছে। তাই দুরন্ত রাজশাহী চেষ্টা করছে, ২৭ জানুয়ারি ভারতের বিপক্ষে ওয়ানডে সিরিজ শেষে তাকে নিয়ে আসা যায় কি-না। তবে পিটারসেন রাজি থাকলেও এ ক্ষেত্রে বাগড়া দিতে পারে ইংলিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড। অতিরিক্ত খেলার চাপ কমানোর জন্য নিউজিল্যান্ড সফরের ওয়ানডে এবং টি২০ থেকে তাকে বিশ্রাম দিয়েছে ইংলিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড; কিন্তু তিনি যদি সে বিশ্রামের মধ্যে অন্য দেশের ঘরোয়া টি২০ টুর্নামেন্ট খেলতে যান, তাহলে বোর্ড কিছুটা চটতেই পারে। সেটাই এখন একমাত্র চিন্তার বিষয়। বোর্ডের সঙ্গে দীর্ঘদিন ঝামেলা ছিল পিটারসেনের। ভারত সফরের আগে দূর হয় সব দূরত্ব। নতুন করে জোড়া লাগা সম্পর্কটা নিয়ে পিটারসেনের ঝুঁকি নেওয়ার সম্ভাবনা কম।
তবে পিটারসেনের অবস্থা দোদুল্যমান হলেও নিলামের পরই অস্ট্রেলিয়ান ফাস্ট বোলার শন টেইটকে দলে টেনেছে দুরন্ত রাজশাহী। অসি এ পেসার নিলামে অবিক্রীত ছিলেন। একইভাবে দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকান পেসার আলফানসো থমাসকে নিয়েছে খুলনা রয়্যাল বেঙ্গলস। আর লাসিথ মালিঙ্গার বদলে অসি পেসার ডার্ক ন্যানাসকে নিতে পারে ঢাকা গ্গ্ন্যাডিয়েটরস নতুন ক্রিকেটার যোগ হওয়ার সঙ্গে বিয়োগের তালিকাও আছে। জানা গেছে, সিলেট রয়্যালসের দুই ক্যারিবীয় ক্রিকেটার আন্দ্রে রাসেল এবং টিনো বেস্ট নাকি জানিয়ে দিয়েছেন, তারা বিপিএল খেলবেন না। তাদের সঙ্গে বিয়োগের তালিকায় যোগ হতে পারেন বরিশাল বার্নার্সের পাকিস্তানি তারকা স্পিনার সাঈদ আজমলও।[/বাংলা]

Rabz
December 31, 2012, 02:26 PM
^^ FB news is still rumour at this point.
But I believe the PCB, after their initial outrage, might allow their players to take part in BPL and DPL. The players dont want to miss out on some good source of income and if denied, might cause a certain degree of resentment amongst the Pakistani players themselves. IPL will not take them and beside BPL, SLPL remains their only hope but that too will not take Pakistanis in a lot like the way we do in our leagues.

Despite our messy handling of the pak tour, we still remain their best bet and if they try to come too hard on us, it will bring no good to them.

Ajfar
December 31, 2012, 02:27 PM
BPL has a big market in Pakistan right after Bangladesh because of Pakistani recruits. Not too many people follow BPL outside BD, so without Pak players BPL will lose some value outside BD and most likely Pak channels won't telecast it, so less money for BPL. I don't think we have good enough domestic players to increase the quality of BPL on our own, plus not too many players other countries are all that keen on coming and big bash is still going on.

I don't think Pak players not coming will make all that a difference for how much our local players get to contribute, because either way teams will play 5 foreign players. Its not like because there is no pak players more BD players will get to play. I think its good for BPL, but BPL/franchises need to be ready just incase if there is a last minute pull out from PCB. I wouldn't be surprised if they decide to do something just a few days before the tournament start hoping to cripple the tournament.

BANFAN
December 31, 2012, 05:14 PM
@ Simon bhai, no... PCB doesn't get anything from BCB.. BCB gets 60 % of what's more than their capped value...that's applicable for foreign players also. Now it's not a bad idea to offer them 25% for leaving their players...:) if you give money, you can get anything done by PCB....so don't know if there is some underhand deal already..

But we have a lots of non-Pak players unsold..... So I don't think it will be that bad, if the Pak players don't come... If needed pay 100% in advance to the players, FICA won't have scope to scare...even many more will try to come to BPL.... BCB has to play it smart...

if you are a pakistani player who does not represent the national team than you will play bpl because their own FC league and T20 league pays peanuts to players.... barely 35 dollars is the match fee....

Are pakistani players so good that we will miss them so badly in BpL. or is it just the media that makes them? isn't it our drawback that we can't get good players from other countries that we are so much dependent on pakistan. You see so cheap domestic players of pakistan got chance in BPL2 it seems pakistan holds a brand. Though i agree that the foreign players should be there to increase attraction but i am afraid it should not be the way it is over here.

Just saying Pakistan has good T20 players doesn't make someone a Pakistan lover. I'm tired of seeing Bangladesh fans calling other fans pakistan/indian lover just because they have a one or two good things to say about their cricket. As if there is a written rule somewhere that says BD fans can't say anything positive about India/Pakistan cricket.

BCB and BPL comittee recently admitted that without Pakistani's or Indian players in BPL the tournment will lose interest, me and you can sit behind the computer and say we don't need them. and when you say almost all G8 teams have good T20, not everyone want's to play in BPL. Our best hope was simply Pakistani's becuase Indian don't give a **** about us, PCB also don't but they are becuase of some benefits to them financial and the controversial tour thing everyone knows about. admitting that Pakistan has some quality T20 Players does not mean I love them so much after seeing some members offensive post and remark made about Bangladesh in Pakpassion Forum, those members would easily get banned in Banglacricket.

Ganguly and T20! do you really watch cricket I mean T20? Afridi is an exception, his a all-rounder and devasting in T20 but to mention Ganguly.! Afridi batting at 7 or 8 In T20 is perfect for a guy that averages 18+ and has strike rate of 150+. how you mentioned Ganguly I can't understand it.

Dhakablues
January 2, 2013, 04:40 PM
Its not a last minute No.. its been always NO unless BCB goes to Pakistan. That was the bargain. Pakistan moved their matches, re-arranged their schedule, got the sponsors lined up etc. after BCB gave them initial Okay for Jan. 12/15. Don't expect brotherly love towards BCB's money making league when their own plan for making any money for their first international cricket at homeground was grounded by BCB due to politics. That too, doing it twice...

Nevertheless, even if PAK players don't play at the BPL, they are going to be back eventually for Dhaka leagues. Same thing for Indian Players.. Surely, international players of Shahid Afridi, Samuels, Azhar Mahmood etc. adds glamor to the leagues and if major PAK players miss out, the league will suffer. That's the fact. Try to get Nepali, Afghani, Canadian players to fill in the gaps and see how many spectators shows up... The reality is Dhaka League always relied on even 2nd grader PAK players of Rashed Hanif, Hason Raza, etc. because we lack quality 'Professionals'. And for BPL, the first season was ruled by the Pakistani players,,, to think our Forhad Hossain, Rony Talukdar, Dollar will set the BPL league ablaze to record specators is analogous to expect our Jahid Hossain Emily, Faisal Wali will be benching Messi, Puyol for an El classico match...

The way BPL was run the first year means we only deserve star players from Pak for unforseeable future. I can't trust on BCB's ability to run this years' tournament smoothly either. Result is no big name players from G8 countries except Pak and WI will be interested to play in BPL. I personally would like to see players participating from all G8 and associate countries for diversity and publicity reasons. The high number of Pak players' participation means the risk of corruption will be high as well. BD will be a favourite work-holiday destination for Indian and Pak bookies. Also I wouldn't like us to be labelled as Pak lovers/allies.

Sylhet Royals owner Nafeesa Kamal talked regarding the matter of Pakistani cricketers NOCs (No-Objection Certificate). As the seven franchises will begin their training camps from the second week of January, with foreign players expected to start arriving from January 4. If the PCB is to give NOCs (No-Objection Certificate) for the BPL, the BCB would prefer them soon because a pull-out would require the governing council and Game On Sports, BPL's event management firm, to host a closed-door auction. In that case, it would throw the tournament into chaos, a scenario that is a major concern for the owners.

Nafeesa said: She believed that in the event of a pull-out, the franchises will not have enough players to fill those vacant spots. "Not having Pakistan players is definitely a concern and I think we should be informed soon about their status. If the BPL - Bangladesh Premier League plans to hold a closed-door auction in the event of their unavailability, we will be left with very few good options."

350 is a bit too much for my opinion. Had it been kept down to 250 for all then it would have been great. Not too many people are gonna purchase ticket for the neutral matches. I think it would have been great had there been a home and away format, but teams like barisal, rangpur probably wont have home grounds then.

But considering last time, this year its much cheapers. It was 500 for everyone, no discount prizes.

Poor Marketing strategy. You dont sell ticket like this! Just follow how its done for the airline tickets!

They should start out cheap, and as they were selling out fast then increase the ticket price gradually...the perfect example was recently concluded WI series and the 2011 WC. When the prices start low, peole start buying and right away because of our culture other will follow like crazy and next thing you know tickets are SOLD OUT.

And never underestimate the power of season pass! Someone smart can really make a killing out of ticket sales. We only think of short term gain, not many think about or take time how to really make money smartly.

Why should there be a discount for students in International gallery..... Student discount should only be applicable for the lowest cost gallery.... Otherwise, this will turn the students into black marketeers....it's tempting to buy in 2100 and sell in 3000 or less... And it's not difficult for a student to arrange 100 Ids...or get a corrupt seller to show every sale as student concession....who will check if its all against one ID..?

শন টেইটকে পাওয়ার জন্য ঢাকা গ্ল্যাডিয়েটরস এবং দুরন্ত রাজশাহীর সঙ্গে রেস করেছে চিটাগং কিংসও। অসি পেসারকে পেতে বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিলে তিন ফ্র্যাঞ্চাইজি আবেদন করলেও বাজিমাত করেছে চিটাগং কিংস। তাদের ঘরেই গেলেন এই অস্ট্রেলিয়ান পেসার। বুধবার রাতে এই সিদ্ধান্ত দিয়েছে বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিল।

চিটাগং কিংস নিলামে ১০ জন বিদেশি ক্রিকেটার দলে নেয়। তাদেরই একজন পাকিস্তানের সাঈদ আনোয়ার জুনিয়রকে বাদ দিয়ে শনের জন্য গত ২৩ ডিসেম্বর বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিলের দ্বারস্থ হয়। নিলামে পাওয়া ক্রিকেটারকে বাদ দেওয়াকে রহস্যজনক মনে করছেন দুরন্ত রাজশাহীর কর্মকর্তারা। যদিও চিটাগং কিংসের মুখপাত্র আতিফ আজম বাংলানিউজকে বললেন,‘নিলাম শেষ হওয়ার পরই জানতে পারি সাঈদ আনোয়ার জুনিয়র চোটাক্রান্ত। তখন তাকে বাদ দেওয়ার সিদ্ধান্ত হয় এবং বিকল্প হিসেবে শন টেইটকে চেয়ে আবেদন করে চিটাগং। সবকিছু বিচার বিশ্লেষণ করে বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিল এই সিদ্ধান্ত দিয়েছে।’

এদিকে বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিলের সদস্যসচিব ড. মল্লিকের দাবি,‘নিয়মের ভেতর থেকেই শন টেইটকে পেয়েছে চিটাগং কিংস। এখানে বিতর্কিত কিছু হয়নি।’ যদিও নিয়মের ব্যাখ্যাটা তিনি দেননি।

তবে ফ্র্যাঞ্চাইজিদের মুখ থেকেই পাওয়া গেলো অন্য তথ্য। নাম গোপন রাখার শর্তে একটি ফ্র্যাঞ্চাইজি বৃহস্পতিবার বাংলানিউজকে জানিয়েছে, বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিল থেকে ঢাকা গ্ল্যাডিয়েটরস এবং দুরন্ত রাজশাহীকে অনুরোধ করেছে বিষয়টিকে ইস্যু না করার জন্য। সে জন্যই তাদের কেউ প্রকাশ্যে মুখ খুলছে না। তবে নাম গোপন রেখে সত্যিটা ঠিকই বলছে।

দুরন্ত রাজশাহী নিলামে বিদেশি ক্রিকেটার নিয়েছে সাতজন। আরও তিনজন বিদেশি নেওয়ার সুযোগ আছে তাদের। সে জন্যই নিলাম শেষে গত ২১ ডিসেম্বর বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিল বরাবর শন টেইটকে চেয়ে আবেদন করে তারা। দুরন্ত রাজশাহীর চেয়ারম্যান মুশফিকুর রহিম মোহন আবেদনের কপি সংরক্ষণও করছেন, এমন দাবি তাঁর। তিনি বলেন,‘২১ ডিসেম্বর আবেদন করে রিসিভ কপিও নিয়ে এসেছি। এমনকি এসএমএসও রেখে দিয়েছি।’

মোহনের দাবি সত্যি হলে শনকে দুরন্ত রাজশাহীরই পাওয়ার কথা। তাহলে কী নিয়মের ব্যত্যয় ঘটিয়ে চিটাগংকে খেলোয়াড় দিয়েছে বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিল? বিসিবি টেকনিক্যাল কমিটির সুপারিশ কী পক্ষপাতদুষ্ট? এই প্রশ্ন ক্রিকেটানুরাগীরা করতেই পারেন।

ঢাকা গ্ল্যাডিয়েটরস ভেতরে ভেতরে শনের সঙ্গে যোগাযোগ করলেও শেষপর্যন্ত তারা বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিলের সিদ্ধান্তই মেনে নিয়েছে। কারণ তারা আবেদন করেছে ২৯ ডিসেম্বর। অর্থাৎ তাদের আবেদন চিটাগং কিংসের পরে হওয়ায় জোর দাবি করারও সুযোগ কম।

সে যাই হোক, শন টেইটকে নিলামমূল্য ৭৫ হাজার মার্কিন ডলারে পাচ্ছে চিটাগং কিংস। বৃহস্পতিবার এক সংবাদ বিজ্ঞপ্তিতে এটা নিশ্চিত করে চিটাগং। মেহরাব জুনিয়রকেও ১০ হাজার ডলারে দলে নিয়েছে তারা। বিপিএল দ্বিতীয় আসরেও চিটাগংকে নেতৃত্ব দেবেন জাতীয় দলের সহঅধিনায়ক মাহমুদউল্লাহ।

Zaka Ashraf, the PCB chairman, has indicated that Pakistan players will play in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) only if the BCB agrees to a tour of Pakistan.

The BPL is scheduled to begin on January 18 and several Pakistan players were sold at its auction last month. Their participation, however, could hinge on the BCB's response to Ashraf's comments. There has been a lot of talk of Bangladesh touring Pakistan but with security continuing to be a concern, there have been no concrete steps forward.

The owners should just kick out their Pakistani recruits and hire players from elsewhere and the BCB should allow it. The owners should be able to act in the best interest of their teams and businesses and if, even a week before the start of the tournament, there's no guarantee Pakistani players will be available, the teams should be given the opportunity to explore other options.

For the Pakistani players.. I think BCB should also take a stance that Pakistani players can join later if their board gives permission prior to the Semis.. otherwise, the franchises should look for players from Sri Lanka, England, Ireland etc. for replacements. I am pretty sure there are 23 other international players in the world who can take their place-- albeit its a bit late.

BCB should also remind PCB that the decision they are taking are solely based on security ground and PCB blackmailing or using an international tour as a bait is unacceptable. Any respecting board wouldve done that. Enough is enough, the league must go on and the team must know who are their players instead of relying on a 'Sentu' PCB board..

Recruiting one or two players from Afghanistan is a good idea. Remember how the inclusion of Shakib in IPL has increased the interest of BD fans. This way a BPL team can get some Afghan fans. Besides Afghanistan has some good players also.

in your own opinion, do you think BPL governing commitee or who ever made the auction list contacted those players or do you think they were just happy making the tournment full of pakistani players auctioned?. in my opinion BPL commitee are such failures... why.. that guy don't know his name on some interview could not answer to simple questions.. and the payment issue still goes on. I can assure you that majority of the players where not contacted by whoever made the auction list.

Their availability isn't the primary issue, the issue is if they even want to come and play BPL given the payment and contract mess that followed last year and still hasn't been completely resolved.

Mismanagement hinders build-up, say BPL teams


The BPL governing council for the first edition faced much criticism for the way they handled certain issues, but according to franchisees it has gone only from bad to worse after a new group replaced the officials for the second edition.
There are many issues still needed to be sorted out, including the participation of Pakistani players and the accommodation of players, which put the franchisees in an uncertain situation.
Champions Dhaka Gladiators are among others who raised their voice against the mismanagement of the tournament and doubted whether it would be financially viable for them.
‘They (BPL governing council) are failing in many ways and it only proves the tournament is going through a total mismanagement,’ Salim Chowdhury, owner of Gladiators, told reporters on Saturday.
‘The promotional activities are not worth mentioning as nothing is being done by the BPL committee that suggest they are not keen to take the game into the heart of the fans,’ said Salim.
‘If that is not ensured it would be difficult to sustain as the fans can only ensure a success to the competition,’ added Salim.
Salim’s disappointment doubled as he is yet to start his team’s practice like he did in the first edition because of unavailability of players – both local and foreign.



‘We are yet to get the full squad whereas even today the BCB could not guarantee over the Pakistani players’ participation,’ added Salim.
Duranto Rajshahi owner Mushfiqur Rahman also echoed the same opinion as Salim and took a U-turn from his earlier stance when he had confirmed the Pakistani players’ participation in the tournament.
Mushfiq brought in Pakistani Abdul Razzak to prove his point and show the media there is little to worry about the Pakistani players though Razzak foiled the attempt saying he cannot go against the board.
‘It is really very difficult with so many uncertainties around. Though I am a positive man still I cannot say anything with supreme authority on the Pakistani players’ issue,’ said Mushfiq.




Apart from promotion and their failure to ensure the franchises about the Pakistani players, the BPL governing council is yet to finalise a company for the opening ceremony, which is just two days away.


The franchises are yet to receive confirmation about their air tickets to take their players to the other two venues in Khulna and Chittagong.
Some franchises complained that due to a lack of cooperation from the BCB they did not get the hotel booking and are being charged almost double than their expected rent.

All eyes on PAK players/trip issue, while lots of major issues are not in place!
Air tickets and hotels are not even booked for Khulna and Chittagong!

Just start the DPL instead, this is really poor management...

Chittagong Kings looks the top team in BPL-2: My Line up

1. Imran Nazir
2. Marshal Ayub
3. Ravi Bopara
4. Dwayne Bravo
5. Ryan Ten Doschete
6. Mahmudullah Raid
7. Nurul Hasan
8. Rubel Hossain
9. Shaun Tait
10. Enamul Haque Jr
11. Arafat Sunny

They have too many bowling option Pacers: Tait, Bopara, bravo, Rubel, Tendo, Spinners (Enam and Arafat + Mahmudullah)
Jason Roy in for Bopara. Terrific lineup, got a feeling it's Dhaka vs Ctg, with Sylhet being the other major contender.

yh bunch of idiots :sick:

Players are supposed to get 25% of the money before the tournament starts, 25% during the tournament, and the remaining 50% within 150 days after the competition ends.

"I haven't received it yet," Shakib said after Dhaka Gladiators' first training session. "I think rules about payment should be written down so that payments can be made properly. The players will appreciate if payments are made for this season because we know what happened last season."

"It would be great if we get paid soon, because we give our 100% when we take the field and deliver results."

What is that supposed to mean? Are you saying Shak doesn't give 100% in the field?

Lost in translation. Here's the BCB media release, see the last question:


Q. How was the first practice of Dhaka Gladiators?
Shakib: We are still to have the full squad; it was only the locals who practiced today. It was more like a get together and a little of warm-up. Hopefully the practice will be more serious from tomorrow as all will be checking-in the team hotel tonight and we have the foreign cricketers and head-coach joining us tomorrow.


Q. The teams are getting only two three days to practice before the tournament starts. Do you think too short to have a team preparation?
Shakib: I think all the other members of the team were into playing matches except for me, so I don’t think it won’t be much of a problem for them. And I have been practicing personally for few days now, so I feel it shouldn’t be a much of a problem.


Q. Injury situation.
Shakib: To be true, I think I am not fit yet however hopefully will recover with in the first two matches.


Q. How much helpful do you think BPL will be to the players before the national team tours Sri Lanka in March?
Shakib: It is tough to comment on this but I think BPL helped us in the Asia Cup. So if the local cricketers can manage perform, I am sure this will help.


Q. Do you think the second edition of BPL has less international stars?
Shakib: I don’t think there is much of a difference in spite of Chris Gayle. And at the same time I think we have many local stars also.


Q. How are you seeing Dhaka Gladiator’ expectation?
Shakib: I am a professional cricketer so I will always try to give my best for any side that I play. I have never thought of what Dhaka is expecting rather I have in my mind that I will need to contribute for the team in the best way possible.
Q. Do you think it would have been better to have practice matches before the tournament?
Shakib: We probably have one practice match against Rangpur Riders on the 16<sup>th</sup>. It will help me a lot if the match takes place.


Q. Do you think the negatives about the BPL will affect the players?
Shakib: I haven’t been following the news for few days now so I have a very little idea of whats happening. The only thing I have in mind is that I am in the Dhaka team and I will be playing for Dhaka team.


Q. What should be expected from Dhaka Gladiators?
Shakib: As because Dhaka are the defending champions all will expect to retain the title. I find the team combination to be very good but we will need to perform on field and if we can perform to our think, the team will surely get good results.


Q. Do you think irregular payments will affect the players' performance?
Shakib: It should never affect but I feel that it will hurt them, which is a normal thing to happen. There is nothing much to say on this as we (players) all have suffered. Getting the full payment will always make us feel better as we try to give our 100 percent, doesn’t matter which team we are playing for. But this can never be the reason that few will get the payment and few will not. I feel that there should be more concrete rules when comes to paying the players so that the players are not ill-treated.


He isn't saying he'll only give his 100% if he gets paid up-front, in fact he's saying the opposite.

I never said that. Dont you see, He just threat the DG owner with that percentage?! What is the purpose of this interview in cricinfo anyway! I'm quite sure now DG wont win matches with these 75% efforts from the performers if payments aint clear first.

This is infuriating me the way the franchises arent paying players. Its been going on for too long. Even all the money hasnt been paid from the last BPL which makes me sick.

BPL2 should be postponed for 2 weeks. Lets sort out all PAK player issue, payment issues for past and present. This will give enough time for all the franchises to get ready with players, give them time to practice and prepare, take care of hotels/transportation issues, and if needed perform a second Auction to fill up all the gaps. BBL will be over by then, and more players will be available. BCB can also add more players in the auction to replace injured/unavailable players.

I thought BPL1 was arranged in a hurry. BPL2 is 100 times worse!

I don't know and I don't care who comes who won't come, although I blve Pak players will end up coming, they can't refuse so much money.
All I want is to see our boys playing, tired of following other teams playin, we have such a poor schedule, we have to wait 2 + months in between every series.
