Dhaka, Oct 10 (bdnews24.com) - The 2012-13 National Cricket League (NCL), the country's lone first-class competition, will start from Oct 20.
This was decided after a meeting of the newly formed governing committee which was presided over by BCB Senior Vice-President Mahbubul Anam, who is also the Convener at the Bangladesh Cricket Board's Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium headquarters on Wednesday.
Later at a press briefing, Anam said that players would receive Tk 40,000 as match fee instead of the existing Tk 20,000 per match. The 12th and 13th player named in the list will receive a third of that amount while the 14th member will get a fourth of the fee amount.
Each of the teams can register upto five foreign players but only two will be allowed in the playing eleven on matchdays. And they must be first-class cricketers.
