Going through FB I have seen quite a lot of top players being roped in to play the BPL.

So far Dhaka has signed Sangakkara, Afridi, Watson, Amir, Sunil Narine and Even Lewis.

Khulna has signed Chris Lynn, Sarfaraz Ahmed already

Sammy to return to Rajshahi. Great to see do much interest in this year's BPL. Kudos to BCB and security officials to make it all possible.

The real issue last year was security otherwise a lot of players would have taken part.

However, Dhaka crowd will be a massive disappointment again so need to ensure matches in Khulna and Sylhet. Oh and matches should also be held in fatullah which has floodlights I believe

I am just not a fan of pre signing. This makes the team so imbalance. I remember BPL 3 was so competitive unlike the other bpls where dhaka dominated simply due to strong squad and allowed Nana to boost

Even Afghan league also have an auction / selection like system where all the teams can sit together and take players

The issue with auction is that foreign players are paid peanuts.

If anything there should be a large salary cap 2

BCB can expect huge crowds if they host matches in cities like Khulna and Sylhet. They can even host test matches in sylhet(of course in dry season) to draw larger crowd.
This is because they are deprived of cricket and won't miss any chance to see international cricket.

But BCB is still likely to stick with Dhaka and Chittagong even in this BPL.

Will we get better pitches this time, you know where 130-140 isn't par score

Pitches can get rest if matches are held in several venues.

Heck arrange matches in fatullah

Nobody likes 130-140 run matches

Good thread. Timely. Needed to hear something on the upcoming BPL. It's good to move on and stop dwelling on what happened recently.

Looking forward to this BPL. Sylhet will be back - Hurraaayyy. And Sylhet Stadium will be used, the capacity is being increased to about 25k which is fine for the surrounding it is located in. Best location of a stadium in BD by a country mile. International people will love it more.

looks like some teams have made some good early signings. There will be ceremony two days before. Seems like they preparing it better this year. Lets hope this will be a the best one.

If they won't be issued NOC why they made themselves available for the tournament and accepted the offers so far?
Perhaps, you mean to say, the last minute drama from pcb (as usual) to stop them coming?

But at the same time 200+ par pitches aren't good to watch either, but I do agree those pitches were odi pitches, not good enough

Need to have 160-180 par pitches, that way a great bowling performance can bring team down to 140, or a batting performance can take it to over 200

Won't be surprised, run by idiots, pretend like there players are millionaires and don't need a paycheck

Barring injury concerns, it's idiotic to not allow players to play

Thats the problem-when you play all matches in 2-3 grounds. The pitches wear out, and they become difficult to bat in.

Pakistani players shouldn't have agreed to sign for this league without confirmed NOC from PCB. NOC is important and given the fragile relationship between PCB and BCB, i doubt there will be NOC.

In the larger context, i hope PCB agrees to issue NOC and hope to work with BCB to host Bangladesh in UAE. Meanwhile, use PSL to promote cricket in Pakistan one step at the time.

A sensible post from a Pakistani I believe?

A lot of Pakistani wishes to shut the door on BCB. PCB can ill afford to do so.

PCB are incurring losses hosting WI SL whilst BD would mean huge profit if hosted in UAE.

Everyone wins if PCB and BCB maintains good relationship

Because BCB is known to be backstabber? BCB didn't even spare BCCI. PCB promoted lots of cricket in Bangladesh in the last few years, and benefited nothing in return apart from some winning titles over Asia Cup. Financially, PCB benefits nothing from maintaining diplomatic tactics with BCB.

What gave you the impression that PCB is incurring losses from hosting WI, SL? Those teams are test-playing nations that carry the reputation of regular teams like Australia, England, South Africa and New Zealand in terms of sponsors. Hence PCB was able to host Sri Lanka and West Indies many times.

And including the recent where PCB was in profit for hosting West Indies despite the fact that West Indies is not the same as 90s. From the sponsor's perspective, it is brand name that can fetch good bargain but for how long might be the key here.

As i said repeatedly, the status of Bangladesh hasn't changed from the sponsor's point of view which may not fetch good bargain in the inexpensive regions to generate decent turnover to make up for the investments [hotel arrangements]. That is why hosting Bangladesh in Pakistan seems affordable relatively and ideal. It has nothing to do with bossing BCB around.

Even if PCB misses out from BCB, then it is not end of the world. Despite not being able to host at home [Pakistan], PCB still managed to fetch good bargains from the sponsor simply by hosting its home series in the inexpensive UAE, and remained profitable for years including PSL. So whether in Pakistan or UAE, Pakistan cricket is safe for now. But hosting minnow teams in inexpensive regions? That would be risk taker. :-|

From the diplomatic relationship with BCB, only BCB wins. I don't see how PCB can benefit from having diplomatic relationship with BCB since PCB cannot afford to host Bangladesh team in inexpensive UAE to begin with. That is why i believe PCB can afford not to care.

Well first things first. PCB isn't in good terms with BCCI and BCB which means two of the bigger markets in sports is already out of the question.

Would believe me if I told you BD's population is almost the combined of SL, WI, Aus, England, Zim, SA, NZ? We have 180 million people in our country and a good number of them die-hard cricket fans.

Would you believe me if I told you that more than 50% of the sponsorships for the BD VS SL in Sri Lanka were from Bangladesh sponsors alone? Heck the title sponsors were Bangladeshi. The tri nation series between Ireland, Bangladesh and NZ had 95% of its sponsorships from Bangladeshi companies?

Why do you Pakistani's ignore basic facts and focus on history? Do you even know half the players in the current West Indies? Do you think any particular sponsor will want to pay money to see the likes of Ashley Nurse, Chase in action? The current WI ODI side has fewer ODI centuries than Mushfiqur.

Your board has been desperate to play India because they are in a severe financial crisis. Only teams like Australia, England, SA provide some profit. SL and WI don't. Bangladesh will generate much more revenue because of the sponsorship we bring. Our economy is improving significantly day by day, our interest in cricket is at an all-time high and we have the population. Do you remember the last time a limited over international in Bangladesh with BD playing have an empty seats? NEVER. Did you know that the WI vs Pak series had more birds as spectators than actual spectators? Oh well you wouldn't because you were too busy playing simulation in your head as to how BCB backstabbed Pakistan.

Do you know who backstabbed who? Yes your precious cricket board. Our board never had any obligation to tour Pakistan. They took in the interest of the players and coaching staff into mind. Your board weren't able to provide Sri Lankans the necessary security required when they were on their way to the stadium. Its okay if all other teams say no. Infact Zimbabwe were "manipulated" with money because, well, we know their board is corrupt and their players can't even pay their rents.

Your board withdrew their players from BPL-2. Even despite that BCB later agreed upon friendly terms with your board. BCB agreed to share revenue with PCB in a series HOSTED IN OUR FREAKING BACKYARD. BCB gave NOCs for BD players to play in the PSL and let Pakistan players play in the BPL without any issue. So please, stop questioning as to why BCB doesn't want to send its national team to Pakistan and actually remind themselves that Pakistan has had its fair share of terrorism problems in this decade with tens of thousands of people winding up dead.

Wait a minute, your board looks at our cricket team like a bunch of guinea pigs. They don't care about our cricket. They are enticing our team into Pakistan to show the world: "LOOK, PAKISTAN IS SAFE, TOUR US TOUR US". They don't give two hoots about anything else.

I am sorry but usually I am harsh on my own cricket board and players. Infact, I am a fan of Pakistan team too, along with many other teams. Heck I support any team that plays good cricket. But when its about PCB being considered an angel and its blind fans defending it, I do get irritated because somebody just needs to come up with facts.

OH PLEASE, OH PLEASE, come up with statistics that goes to show PCB benefits a lot from hosting the West Indies. Keep digging.

UAE is inexpensive? LOLOLOLOL. UAE is a foreign country. Its obviously going to be more expensive for the host nation if the tournament is not even held in the host nation itself :lol::lol::lol:

Well first things first. PCB isn't in good terms with BCCI and BCB which means two of the bigger markets in sports is already out of the question.

With BCCI, that is the 1947 issue which will remain plague with political issue.

But PCB was powerhouse in 90s without India which back then Pakistan and India were not playing each other due to political tension.



Would believe me if I told you BD's population is almost the combined of SL, WI, Aus, England, Zim, SA, NZ? We have 180 million people in our country and a good number of them die-hard cricket fans.

Since when the population is the criteria for the rating? We are talking about the series in UAE where the sponsors have been known hesitant to offer. Big names fetch good bargain, small name doesn't. Bangladesh is small brand.



Would you believe me if I told you that more than 50% of the sponsorships for the BD VS SL in Sri Lanka were from Bangladesh sponsors alone? Heck the title sponsors were Bangladeshi. The tri nation series between Ireland, Bangladesh and NZ had 95% of its sponsorships from Bangladeshi companies?

There was the time when BCB couldn't fetch a decent sponsor at home hence relied on foreign Neo sport to make do with the cheap offer.

Sri Lanka is big name. Big name sells.


Why do you Pakistani's ignore basic facts and focus on history? Do you even know half the players in the current West Indies? Do you think any particular sponsor will want to pay money to see the likes of Ashley Nurse, Chase in action? The current WI ODI side has fewer ODI centuries than Mushfiqur.

Pakistan just hosted West Indies in UAE. And it has been successful - never mind the fact that sponsors were available for West Indies series in UAE not long ago.



Your board has been desperate to play India because they are in a severe financial crisis. Only teams like Australia, England, SA provide some profit. SL and WI don't. Bangladesh will generate much more revenue because of the sponsorship we bring. Our economy is improving significantly day by day, our interest in cricket is at an all-time high and we have the population.

Oh well you wouldn't because you were too busy playing simulation in your head as to how BCB backstabbed Pakistan.

PCB is desperate to host India? Who isn't desperate to host India? That is not desperation, that is called greedy. Every cricket boards line up and bend their knee for BCCI so they can get their cut. But that all changes due to the recent voting.

Yet PCB has been doing fine without India in the last five years while BCB heavily relied on BCCI for the series at home. If anything, BCB is toasted without BCCI taking the recent voting into the account. Not to mention, that rules out Asia Cup in Bangladesh anymore.


Do you know who backstabbed who? Yes your precious cricket board. Our board never had any obligation to tour Pakistan. They took in the interest of the players and coaching staff into mind. Your board weren't able to provide Sri Lankans the necessary security required when they were on their way to the stadium. Its okay if all other teams say no. Infact Zimbabwe were "manipulated" with money because, well, we know their board is corrupt and their players can't even pay their rents.

PCB, BCCI, SLC have been supporting cricket in Bangladesh for many many many decades. When the opportunity came, BCB backstabbed. First with Pakistan and now with BCCI [in the recent voting]. The pattern is there.




Your board withdrew their players from BPL-2. Even despite that BCB later agreed upon friendly terms with your board. BCB agreed to share revenue with PCB in a series HOSTED IN OUR FREAKING BACKYARD. BCB gave NOCs for BD players to play in the PSL and let Pakistan players play in the BPL without any issue. So please, stop questioning as to why BCB doesn't want to send its national team to Pakistan and actually remind themselves that Pakistan has had its fair share of terrorism problems in this decade with tens of thousands of people winding up dead.

The deal was to play in Pakistan which BCB agreed only to change its mind in the abrupt manner. BCB should have said no. But the way BCB acted screamed betrayal which has continued with BCCI now.

As for leagues, Bangladeshi cricketers are not relevant in Pakistani league whereas Pakistani cricketers are relevant in BPL. So naturally, PCB uses that as card in exchange for the deal in the diplomatic manner since it is one way street with BCB constantly taking advantage of PCB. Hence the message, no more. BCB is on its own now.


Wait a minute, your board looks at our cricket team like a bunch of guinea pigs. They don't care about our cricket. They are enticing our team into Pakistan to show the world: "LOOK, PAKISTAN IS SAFE, TOUR US TOUR US". They don't give two hoots about anything else.

I get it. You are upset. Feel free to say no. Complaining makes no sense, and if anything, your complaint validates the important of Pakistan cricket in regards to PCB boycott of leagues.



I am sorry but usually I am harsh on my own cricket board and players. Infact, I am a fan of Pakistan team too, along with many other teams. Heck I support any team that plays good cricket.

UAE is expensive place to live and rent. It costs PCB twice in compares to hosting at home. So it is obvious that PCB will go with the big names and not risk on the small brands such as Bangladesh, Zimbabwe.

Pakistan has been hosting Australia, England, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies many times already. And they have been successful in terms of viewership and the sponsors which are easily available before each series begin. Because they are still big brand regardless of the situation in most test-playing nations such as West Indies and Sri Lanka.

And Pakistan has already lined up for its future home series with them in UAE.

Officially Afghan cricket has, but unofficially, their teams will be playing in Pakistani domestic regularly.

Afghan team is practically Peshawar team which the platform from Pakistan made them what they are.

If anything, it might be big loss for Afghan cricket board knowing their lack of proper infrastructure and domestic first class tournaments which they used Pakistan's infrastructures and participated in domestic's first class tournaments and domestic t20 with the big names.

PCB already has lined up Sri Lanka series in UAE in this year. Pakistan and Sri Lanka have been playing back and forth in both UAE and Sri Lanka for the last five years.

Already hosted Australia and England more than twice, and more on the way before 2020. Hosted Australia, England, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies regularly and that too with the full series. And Bangladesh is yet to be hosted which is not very likely given the sponsor mindset towards minnow teams like Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. Hence hosted Zimbabwe in Pakistan since only local sponsor was available for Zimbabwe which made sense to host the team in Pakistan since Zimbabwe team was eager to play in Pakistan anyways.

PCB hosted almost all the teams regularly with the full series pack at UAE, yet remained profitable as ever. Sure, PCB could have made more at home [Pakistan], but PCB cannot be chooser especially with the situation yet doing fine so far in terms of revenue despite the cost for UAE.

PCB already has lined up Sri Lanka series in UAE in this year. Pakistan and Sri Lanka have been playing back and forth in both UAE and Sri Lanka for the last five years.

I don't remember PCB hosting Bangladesh much, but in 2008, PCB didn't have much cricket so PCB was generous to host Bangladesh in front of Pakistan. And that was the last of it.

Who said Pakistan is some superpower? Although PCB was powerhouse economically in 90s, and even without playing India most of times.

In UAE, it is not the worth the risk hosting Bangladesh in exchange for small turnover. Big brands fetch good bargain, small brands don't.

If you are offended by not being hosted in UAE, then Bangladesh is always welcome in Pakistan.

When a country tours, it gets a share of the revenue, it doesn't ask to be paid a random figure

New Zealand and Sri Lanka, are such big brands, that they get very little sponsors, such big brands that BD companies sponsored the tours for the majority, such big brands that their TV viewership is dwarfed by bd viewership, such big brands that they play in empty grounds at home

Saying Bangladesh isn't financially viable to host in UAE is fine, what doesn't make sense is saying, West Indies, Sri Lanka, New Zealand is, when they don't bring as much money. Fact is unless the Big 3 tour, pcb struggles to make a profit

It's a simple tactic PCB is trying to use to make Bangladesh tour Pakistan.

I don't understand why Pakistani fans are always so blind to the truth, your Board is slowly ruining your cricket, it's ran by bunch of idiots, and before you jump to the defence of the idiots, most of the fans on here readily admit when our board president acts like an idiot, this denial thing is nearly only done by Pakistani fans

But when Pakistan hosts New Zealand and Sri Lanka, that alone fetch good bargain for PCB. And the reason PCB is able to host the full series due to available of sponsors because of oppositions that are already brand.

New Zealand and Sri Lanka test-playing nations that have established brand all over the worlds, and precisely why they get hosted all over the world. More than that, New Zealand regularly plays Australia in Australian turf. It is not just Pakistan alone.

Whereas for Bangladesh, it is still being developed in terms of brand especially in Test series. In essence, the brand suffers in terms of overall the series. At best, Bangladesh can be hosted for limited series. But in UAE? That is even too expensive with little turnover.

Bangladesh is financially viable at their home. But in overseas, i don't remember any teams hosting Bangladesh for the full series citing 3 Test matches and 5 ODI matches and few T20 matches. At best, it fulfills the criteria for limited series.

But the day is not that far when Bangladesh cricket might be able to fetch good bargain for the full series in the overseas given the process of Bangladesh cricket lately.

I agree and to the extent no one defends PCB but in terms of financially, it is bold and risky to host Bangladesh team in inexpensive UAE which cannot be denied. If the money was there, PCB would have taken in heart beat but the money is not there for Bangladesh in overseas. PCB is better off hosting its home series with Bangladesh in Bangladesh but then again, PCB has no need for Bangladesh since PCB has already lined up its home series with the rest of cricket teams at UAE till 2020.

You guys are making it ego issue because PCB is not longer promoting cricket in Bangladesh cricket. Now Bangladesh cricket is brand as many claim, it is only fair that you guys should be fine without Pakistan cricket. No offense.

PCB, SLC and BCCI have done lots of promoting cricket in Bangladesh for years. Not many nation get that privilege.

That being said, i hope PCB hosts Bangladesh in UAE but in terms of financially, it is not feasible. PCB would rather host PSL again than to host Bangladesh team unless Bangladesh agrees to play in Pakistan where the expenses are local and affordable. The whole point of PSL is to slowly integrate cricket into Pakistan through step-by-step process. If Bangladesh doesn't want to play in Pakistan, then there is no point dragging this topic furthermore, is there?



You guys deny everything, from blatant ball tampering, chucking to your stupid decisions by the board

Plz give it a rest. Bro. Your living in denial like most your fans. BD is a big brand now, if you didn't know BD cricket is grown big ways not only by; performing and reaching 6th in the ODI ranks, reaching QF or SF. Today, BD cricket market has grown bigger, last many series home and away Bangladeshi brands came forward to sponsor. What sponsors do NZ and SL you mentioned bring? Last BD to NZ and SL tours it was BD brands sponsoring it. My friend, the market only can grow in BD, you and your fellow fans are underestimating a cricket crazs nation of 170mill, cricket market is only going upwards and it only just became lots more money will pour in next decade.

One thing, about NZ. Come on, cricket is not even the 4th sport there I bet, how can a nation of 5mill be bigger brand than BD? BD has just began but it has the fan-base to take over most nations, only matter of time. Infact its started already.Youll now get more tv views/ratings, sponsors from BD than NZ/SL/WI, you name it.

If your on about money making out of a series. Above explains how BD is better to invite and play against. Hope your clear now.

But when Pakistan hosts New Zealand and Sri Lanka, that alone fetch good bargain for PCB. And the reason PCB is able to host the full series due to available of sponsors because of oppositions that are already brand.

New Zealand and Sri Lanka test-playing nations that have established brand all over the worlds, and precisely why they get hosted all over the world. More than that, New Zealand regularly plays Australia in Australian turf. It is not just Pakistan alone.

Whereas for Bangladesh, it is still being developed in terms of brand especially in Test series. In essence, the brand suffers in terms of overall the series. At best, Bangladesh can be hosted for limited series. But in UAE? That is even too expensive with little turnover.





Bangladesh is financially viable at their home. But in overseas, i don't remember any teams hosting Bangladesh for the full series citing 3 Test matches and 5 ODI matches and few T20 matches. At best, it fulfills the criteria for limited series.

But the day is not that far when Bangladesh cricket might be able to fetch good bargain for the full series in the overseas given the process of Bangladesh cricket lately.



I agree and to the extent no one defends PCB but in terms of financially, it is bold and risky to host Bangladesh team in inexpensive UAE which cannot be denied. If the money was there, PCB would have taken in heart beat but the money is not there for Bangladesh in overseas. PCB is better off hosting its home series with Bangladesh in Bangladesh but then again, PCB has no need for Bangladesh since PCB has already lined up its home series with the rest of cricket teams at UAE till 2020.

You guys are making it ego issue because PCB is not longer promoting cricket in Bangladesh cricket. Now Bangladesh cricket is brand as many claim, it is only fair that you guys should be fine without Pakistan cricket. No offense.

PCB, SLC and BCCI have done lots of promoting cricket in Bangladesh for years. Not many nation get that privilege.

That being said, i hope PCB hosts Bangladesh in UAE but in terms of financially, it is not feasible. PCB would rather host PSL again than to host Bangladesh team unless Bangladesh agrees to play in Pakistan where the expenses are local and affordable. The whole point of PSL is to slowly integrate cricket into Pakistan through step-by-step process. If Bangladesh doesn't want to play in Pakistan, then there is no point dragging this topic furthermore, is there?

Then why big brands like Sri Lanka and New Zealand get complete series in the overseas regularly? I don't remember the last time Bangladesh got complete series regularly in overseas. Right now, Bangladesh is hosted for limited series, and precisely the same reason why hosting Bangladesh is considered risky in inexpensive UAE.

Bangladesh started its cricket in 1998. New Zealand and Sri Lanka have been playing for the long time. Their brands have been developed long time ago which has certain effects on the sponsors to invest.

No offense to Bangladesh cricket, but surely, that should not surprising why New Zealand and Sri Lanka are big brands. And i am not talking about performance wise only.

Nothing to do with brands, but rather ability

Brand is how much money you bring in, via sponsorship and viewership, fact is bd brings in more than nz and SL on both fronts, as evidenced by our recent tour of them

I don't think even bd fans claimed they are any good at tests pre 2015

That's another thing about Pakistani fans, they all live in the past

I don't mind if bd plays pak or not, but not playing harms both to an extent

If we do play, hopefully, Imad Hafeez Junaid have been tested and banned by then, last time you had steroid yasir and chucking Junaid leading the attack... But of course shah was never on illegal substances and Junaid isn't literally throwing the ball

If i am not wrong BPL will take place in november & so does global league of South africa. There are two teams in global league owned by Pakistanis, though players has not been anounced yet but i think few of Pakistani players will be signed up for them. And we also have full series with srilanka in UAE starting from october to december. So i hardly thinks our top notch players will be available for either of those leagues.

Well thats the irony of our people we do seems to forget but still you cant rule out the fact that Pakistan can beat any team any where, even now when we are at our worst condition and when we were at the bottom of the table and every one was looking down upon us and were claiming that this team may even lose to team like afghanistan even then this team of ours still managed to get the trophy despite being isolated from hosting in home, despite being least favorite to win & despite having so much young unexperianced players in team . And thats why we are unpredictables.

And lol plz dont exaggerate that much, we have never claimed that umar akmal is better than kohli otherwise he would have never been dropped from team and hassan is still young guy and is very early to compare him with greats like mcgrath & abrose. And imad wasim is no where near to tendulkar. And babar is not a slogger, he is a very good batsmen infact the only batsmen in our team that can literally bat.

Why do you think Australia regularly host New Zealand in Australia? Why PCB in regards to Sri Lanka for that matter? But the sponsors are already available for them as they are proven brands regardless of their situation.

Bangladesh is uncharted territory when it comes to oversea. Time will tell, but personally, i would love to see PCB hosting Bangladesh in UAE.

That is up to PCB. After successful PSL, PCB is inclined to be little more demanding given what BCB did to PCB in the matter of keeping PCB in dark for the whole time. :facepalm:

That is for another topic.

The schedule of BPL and South Africa T20 league might clash with each other as i have heard. And yeah, Pakistani franchises bought couple of team in Africa T20 league. Perhaps, that is where Pakistani cricketers lies. I expect them to be playing in that league soon.

I believe the full series with Sri Lanka is in October while African T20 league might be in the summer. Pakistani players will be busy in the summer from Carribean T20 to Natwest T20 league and now African T20.

If the part of schedule clash is true, then BPL might lose out some cricketers to African T20 league. Bad timing.

BPL had huge financial issue despite hosting at home [Bangladesh]. Whereas PSL has been successful in oversea especially the inexpensive UAE. PSL has been hosted twice and both editions have been successful so far.

Rilee Rossow signed by Khulna. Gunaratne to Dhaka.

Seems like this year its proper business, some big t20 names already signed and more coming in. DD as usual seems to be buying all the good ones; they have,Watson, Narine, Afridi, Amir, Sanga retained. Khulna have done some early business too.

Where are the rest of the franchises ? Need to hear some actions from them. Sylhet yet to be named.

From next year or when the contract ends, teams should be opened to international buyers to bid too. That way more price will go up. BPL has all the tools to be mega successful tournament played in Bangladesh, at home not elsewhere, and with the big crowds to back it up. Just missing some correct organisation.

Don't generalize dude, India has always been a dominant force in ICC tournaments, out of 5 ICC tournaments in this decade we won two of them, finalists in one and reached semi twice, trust me even if we want to brag we don't have to go back to the 90's, we have achieved enough in the recent past.

Indeed BD has become a big brand in cricket that means even if some random dude in the internet calls you minnow you don't become one, you will encounter people with different views and ideas in online platforms, trust me man I am telling this from experience it is better to grow a thick skin than reacting all the time.

Honestly speaking Pakistani fans are not used to winning big trophies very often and let alone beating their arch rivals in the finals so they are going overboard with the celebrations and chest thumping, cut them some slack and let them enjoy till it lasts. :)

At home [Bangladesh], Bangladesh is more economical viable. That is the same with every teams hosting the home series.

Outside the home, it depends on the host and its sponsor. Pakistan's sponsor is Ten Network which has covered for hosting South Africa, Sri Lanka, England, Australia, New Zealand and even West Indies.

BPL had huge financial issue despite hosting at home . Whereas PSL has been successful in oversea especially the [B]inexpensive UAE. PSL has been hosted twice and both editions have been successful so far.

I am glad PCB was slow and took the time with PSL while BCB hastened with BPL which exposed the matter of fact that BPL was not ready to begin with. :facepalm:

Was ored waiting at the doctor's office so had time to read through this thread. I can't believe you guys are wasting time arguing with a guy that doesn't know the difference between expensive and inexpensive. Has MalikBro become the new Austin?? Maybe he will go away after Pak's next trashing, much like our Austin bhaiya. :lol:

I will just say this MalikBro, a cricket team's brand is not synonymous with how long they have played cricket or whatever success they had in the bygone era of the 80s or 90s. It has everything to do with how many eyeballs they bring to the TV, and how much those eyeballs are spending on whatever things the sponsors and company ads are selling. This discussion is futile until you can understand that concept.

My Perspective is reality. 1.27 Pakistani rupees = 1 taka. That is all. Have a great day.

Why the teams decides 4 players vs 5 players? Why not BCB decide based on what is good for the country?

Personally I prefer 4 foreign players. BPL should not be all about money making machine, they need to think long term benefit and how it will help develop our young players. I would rather sacrifice a little bit of quality if that means more young Bangladeshi players get a chance of their own tournament.

This isn't local sub-district tournament. Need the 'Sylhet' name on team title, no one knows Surma even half of elsewhere probably does not know where Surma River is, let alone outsiders.

I have better plan for BPL. Be the first one. Have 10 teams next year, play once only. Most of the matches are in neutral ground anyway. Until stadiums and accommodations available in teams regions, then play home and away. For now it be better to have 10-teams play against each other one match each.

Ok.. 6x8=48 players this time compared to 7x7=49 players last time. So not much of a difference in getting an opportunity in playing 11.

But if teams have 5 foreign players they are expected to play them in key positions. like in batting there will be atleast couple who will bat in the top four and also during bowling in crunch time or last over there will always have some foreign player to bowl that over(ideally). So although we have 6 local players in each team but I am afraid behind the icon and foreign players they will be shadowed.

I agree with some of these things. Gayle is way past his prime. But to say he's lucky is wrong. He is now reaping the benefit of being one of the most deadliest hitters in the game. Plus he's got a wonderful personality and every country's fans love him. He brings people to the game and that's mainly why he will still get big contracts for another 2-3 years.

I don't want a complete flat 220 pitch that's not did to watch, neither is a 120 pitch like they've given

Needs to be par 160-180 wickets, so you can have good bowling to keep it under 140 or good batting to take it over 200

BCB will do jack. They move their a**es when ICC make them to. They won't take any measures for BPL. BPL will be played on crappy surfaces as usual.

Well, I wouldnt play Kayes and Bravo when I can replace them with Mire and Malik.. both of whom can bowl pace and spin respectively. Instead of Rashid, I'd play Enamul Haque. Plus, I dont see why I need Liton when Buttler is a better bat and can keep. Instead, I would play Kapali in place of Liton.

So here goes mine:

Tamim
Mire (O)
Samuels (O)
Malik (O)
Buttler (O)(W)
Nabi (O)
Kapali
Saifuddin
Sunny
Al-Amin Hossain
Enamul Haque

You have : Mire, Saifuddin, Al-Amin (pacers), Samuels, Malik, Nabi, Enamul Haque, Sunny (spinners, of which the first 3 are top-class T20 bowlers), Kapali (occasional leg spin)

I dont think there's more balanced squad than this for Commila. You have an explosive line-up till Saifuddin, all of whom are proper bat + Sunny who can hold his ground. Pretty sure this side can chase down any target probably below 200.

But that's a team to dominate until the semis, bowling is far too light

Let's not forget this is for the benefit for our players

Guys like malik are not better than Das, saying that mire? He can't bowl or bat better than Rashid

Al Amin is a wicket taker but expensive, barring sunny 2.0 who I haven't seen properly, this bowling line up will get ate up eventually and has Samuels as the only consistent batsman to bail them out

Leaving out kayes and bravo... That I can't argue with, but I'll keep kayes as he's a domestic player, others aren't that much better than him barring Samuels and Buttler

I see your point but Comilla's bowling squad is thin anyway, barring Rashid.

As for Mire vs Rashid, the former is undoubtedly the better bat and latter the better bowl. So this is tricky. As for Malik, he is a waayy better bat than Liton, just watch the recent games vs World XI. He also adds bowling depth which Liton doesnt + his experience.

The only team that can probably eat the said bowling line-up is Dhaka. As for others, I doubt it.

Anyways, if I court in your suggestions, then probably we can agree on this :-

Tamim
Liton
Samuels (O)
Malik (O)
Buttler (O)(WK)
Nabi (O)
Saifuddin
Rashid (O)
Arafat Sunny
Al-Amin Hossain
Enamul Haque

If you want to play an extra bat, swap in Kapali for Enamul. If extra bowler, than Enamul.

I can agree with that team, my main issue was I don't want our young talent on the bench (Das)

I would have kapali, enamul imrul on rotation

So possibly

Tamim
Liton
Samuels (O)
Malik (O)
Buttler (O)(WK)
Nabi (O)
Kapali
Saifuddin
Rashid (O)
Arafat Sunny
Al-Amin Hossain

Or

Tamim
Imrul
Liton WK
Samuels (O)
Malik (O)
Buttler (O)
Nabi (O)
Saifuddin
Rashid (O)
Arafat Sunny
Al-Amin Hossain

Last one probably has the most protection for batting and has 16 experiences overs and Saifuddin, with Samuels and malik if they need, which they shouldn't

Makes sense but I discourage the last line up. I wouln't play Liton and Imrul both at top. Only one - preferably Liton as he has more prospect. Imrul will have once in a blue moon good innings and that's about it. Instead of him, I'd add an extra bowler.
