WTF? What a mess. Looks like it will be 7 teams this time around. And with 5 foreigners per team, forget seeing any fresh young talent.

If the owners are going to be so incompetent, should BCB open up BPL to foreign ownership, similar to the SA Global league? Would someone like Shahrukh Khan want to extend his Knight Rider brand to Bangladesh? Thoughts?

p.s. looking forward to a Mushy "happiness is this" post :lol:

I hope Sylhet gets Mustafiz. With Sabbir and Fizz as locals, team would be really good.

This is complete mismanagement man, you are right nothing wrong in opening up to foreign franchises, Someone like Khan who always looks for investment I am sure he would love to own a BPL team, sure as hell will earn him more profit than his CPL team, he has millions of fans in BD, if he comes to cheer his team thousands will flock to stadium just to see him, win win for both.

They failed to confirm Bank Guarantee which is a prerequisite to take part in the tournament. BCB had no choice but to rule them out because they had to make sure players are being paid.

Foreign ownership would also raise the value of each franchise due to the added competition. Now we just have guys with some money and lots of political connections owning teams they have no business owning. Sometimes I get so frustrated just thinking about it.

Exactly, I would personally love to see a Khulna Knight riders in the neighborhood.:D

IPL was successful from the very first season credit goes to one guy, Lalit Modi, it was his brain child and he literally micromanaged everything in the first season and the seasons after that just followed the same pattern. First impression is often the last and most long-lasting impression.

TBH there is nothing to be frustrated of, it is not easy to organize this kind of leagues, BPL is still in the infant stage and will improve over time, the only complaint I have is the presentation, I am not talking about after match party or cheerleaders, but at least videography/quality of the videos should be improved if you wanna attract more Non-BD viewers.

Channel 9 broadcasting is a joke, apparently BCB paid off $15M to get out of it

As for the cheerleaders, I like the fact there isn't any of that, I despise that about the IPL, it's often more bollywood than cricket, I get it attracts certain Indian audiences more, and more sponsorship money to have dlf maximum, carbon catch or whatever bs, but that really ruins the experience of watching it along with the forced lines commentators have to say

IPL was not created to cater to the Puritans. Primary goals of IPL were


To make truckloads of money for BCCI.

To recognize raw young talents.

To make people flock to the stadium.

To make sure the average Indian viewer is glued to the TV while the match is on

To make sure that the owners and investors are making profits.

To attract a minimum amount of viewers from other cricket playing countries.

To make sure that all the players are properly paid as per their contracts

To make sure that the domestic players with very little chance to don the blue ever can earn some extra bucks.

To create city based rivalries much like soccer leagues.


So far IPL not only fulfilled all the above criteria but exceeded the expectations as well, it is a money making machine for BCCI and has become instrumental in churning out young talents and has a massive popularity among Indian fans, in terms of quality of cricketers both foreign and domestic IPL is miles ahead of other leagues, it became exactly what it was meant to be and more, a tale of success.

Anyways this thread is not about IPL, so I will stop.

Thank God we don't have cheerleaders. It doesn't suit Bengali culture. It doesn't suit Indian culture either, imo. It's just tacky. Not to mention further proof of india's obsession with white skin.

My gripe with BPL is that there's nothing original about it. It's just a carbon copy of IPL, and they can't even do that properly.

The insatiable appetite for cricket in Bangladesh means that BPL will always have a following and will succeed, even when the management is so pathetic. So no one holds their feet to the fire. Here's how I would change things for now:

1) Open up franchise ownership to foreign firms - results in more money being poured in. Value of each franchise would jump as BD firms would have to outbid foreign firms. Not to mention a Knigh Rider management would be a lot more professional and serious than the gadhas running the Barisal Bulls.

2) That money could then be used to develop stadiums and create proper home/away fixtures. And not using the same 2 venues would result in better on field product as well.

3) Go back to 4 foreigners per XI and also require a u-19 player in each XI.

4) Have Bengali-centric team names (see my previous thread - minus all the sylhet back and forth). Jokes aside, those names make more sense than the generic crap we have now.

5) Get rid of team ambassadors and instead have team mascots. Would create a more family friendly environment.

Agree 100%. IPL has become a goliath. And BPL has only managed to copy IPL on a superficial level, rather than focus on the management and business side of it. If you want to compete with Goliath, don't just put something together and call yourself Boliath. Be different, be unique, become David.

Our culture is not rigid, we are a thousands of years old continuous civilization, when west was hunting and gathering we built majestic cave images and sculptures of Ajanta and Ellora, ours is the land of Kamasutra, sex has never been a taboo for a large part of our history, we became this conservative in last few hundred years, remnants of our culture is still very much present in far east,a few ladies shaking legs is no threat to our culture. Don't worry. BTW what is Bangladeshi culture? It is a subset of Indian culture just like there is nothing called Pakistani culture. You are trying to built a different identity I get that but toying with history can be dangerous, don't have to go far see just see what Pakistanis have become in their quest to become "Not-Indians"

That fair skin bit is a bit offensive, I did not expect that from you, Bangladesh was not appeared from nowhere, it was carved from the very land you are making fun of, you were ruled by the same people, have the same blood share the same obsessions. You insulting us is like you spitting in your own face, not sure if you understand that.

Anyways I don't mean no offence and don't wanna derail this thread either, I wish BPL all the success in the world.

There is no such thing as Bangladeshi culture. Our culture is Bengali culture. It's not a subset of Indian culture because there is no such thing as "Indian" culture. What most people outside of the subcontinent call Indian culture is just North Indian culture (hindi speaking, Hindu dominant, Sacred Cow, Diwali, etc.) But I'm sure you will agree, that's not all of Indian culture. It's hard to have a singular identity when so many ethnicities are involved. But that's not true for Bangladesh. We are 98% Bengali and that is our sole culture. If anything, we contributed to "Indian" culture. To call Bengali culture a subset is to imply that we somehow "borrowed" from India, when that's not true. We've simply held on to what we have always had.

That fair skin bit is a bit offensive, I did not expect that from you, Bangladesh was not appeared from nowhere, it was carved from the very land you are making fun of, you were ruled by the same people, have the same blood share the same obsessions. You insulting us is like you spitting in your own face, not sure if you understand that.

I don't disagree. It's a problem in Bangladesh as well. Fair & Lovely is very popular here, a sad fact. But you have to admit that there's a reason why those cheerleaders are mostly white. There's no defending that. It's just pathetic all around.

On the whole of course ipl is good for Indian cricket

How many young players has it actually produced though?

'To attract a minimum amount of viewers from other cricket playing countries.' - nonsense

Further, they didn't need to go show much showbiz, cheerleaders are cringe worthy, lot of the things just looks like a desperate attempt to bring more 'Americanised'

I don't mind T20, but Big Bash is better to watch than IPL even though it's got less players, that's mainly because it's more cricket based, even though it's got side things to it, it's not in your face

I can't tell you about Indian culture, but most will find You can't watch IPL with your grandmother or young kids, cause every 30 seconds you've got a half naked woman shaking her behind at the camera

That's just ignorance, maybe there isn't a bangladeshi culture, but there certainly is a bengali culture, Indians in parts of India have bengali culture

It is not a subset of an Indian culture at all, hell even in India there's a handful of different cultures, calling everything 'Indian' is a sign of ignorance that's expected from a 50 year old english man

'You are trying to built a different identity I get that but toying with history can be dangerous' that's just plain stupid, bengali culture has long existed, it did not come about in 1971

don't have to go far see just see what Pakistanis have become in their quest to become "Not-Indians" - they're not Indians, they have many different cultures, but apart from those Muslim migrants they were never Indian, a punjabi was always punjabi, a pathan was always a pathan, and what is it that they've become in trying not to be Indian, please clarify

Your post greatly exaggerates Indian culture, you're looking at it from a 50 year old English guys eyes, they're certainly is more than one culture even within India itself, forget about bangladesh

I think you are both right and wrong. Let me try a parallel example: We can rightly say British culture and German culture are subsets of European culture. Say suddenly there is no continent named Europe and German changed it's name to Europe. Now saying that British culture is a subset of European culture will be wrong (Europe has changed from continent to country). Same thing happened here. Before 1947 it was Indian , after 1947, it became Indo-Pak Subcontinent and after 1971 we see the use of the word South Asian Subcontinent more and more. So in currently the right thing is to say: Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi cultures are subsets of South Asian Culture.

I see the history in a different way. Actually as a COUNTRY India was nowhere before British. Most of it's thousand years of his history Bangladesh was Independent. The word Bangladesh was used most of the time instead of Bangla Prodesh (like Uttar Prodesh). It is well documented in History. In fact because of British rule, a new country India was born (along with Pakistan) by carving out one third of Bengal from Bangladesh

I was hoping we'll have all 8 teams for a change. It will mean more matches for the fans. I hope the pitches, and all that are better now. The last BPL was kind of boring. It's disappointing to see Barisal not participate because they reached the final on a few occasions I believe. Also, I hope a team other than Dhaka wins it this time around, but Dhaka are favourites for sure, and I think they'll reach the final yet again somehow...
