I agree with the marketing ideas here - BCB would do well to hire a marketing saavy person to revamp domestic cricket. I don't buy that people won't come because a) they supposedly love watching cricket and b) they can't watch the national team every day. So if the cricket matches are quality, there is some entertainment, the price is reasonable or free - people will show up. Watching cricket all day will of course be a problem for people who work but Bangladeshis always seem to find a way around that little problem...
Here is a thought to get some crowd interest. I apologize if it ever backfires. Since Kenyans want to play in Bangladesh, the Scottish think they can prove their worth given an opportunity and the Irish are knocking on the door to get ODI status, why not invite a couple of them to join our domestic leagues as teams to spice up the living. I am sure that will pull the crowd. Who would miss the opportunity to watch Kenya playing Abahani, or Biman playing Ireland.
