BCB bosses play with NCL
Two teams could be scrapped, scheduled start unlikely, Tigers’ preparation for West Indies series could suffer, day-night first-class match uncertain
The internal feud between the officials made the scheduled starting of forthcoming National Cricket League uncertain, putting many plans of the Bangladesh Cricket Board in jeopardy.
The league is scheduled to start on October 14, but it is now highly unlikely as the BCB is desperate to tag corporate houses with the teams, which created a big difference between the squabbling officials.
Things became complicated as the BCB apparently decided to scrap two teams – Dhaka Metropolis and Rangpur Division – as it could attract only six corporate houses to get involved with the NCL sides.
