Seems like Isam also agrees that the hectic schedule, traffic jam and concentration at Dhaka could be the reason for the poor turnouts and spectators fatigue!!

One other thing that I think none mentioned is, due to hectic IPL schedule, players were burned out and were de-motivated to play other serieses. We have players like Shane Harwood, Chris Gayle, Rubel already out of the tournament because of injuries and lack of time to recoup... I hope next time BCB take note of this issue too. And like the World Cup soccer, we don't have to broadcast every single game... or that can be partnered with ATN like other local channels,, just like how US manages the busy NBA, NFL schedules.
