Default Why is the BPL in November?

No other team has their premier league in the prime of their cricket season. County/BBL don't count because England and Australia don't cancel their leagues if there are international fixtures.

IPL is at the tail end of the cricket season, PSL is also in the off season. So why does the BCB insist on prioritizing a 5th rate league over international tours?

If we lose 5 weeks during out cricket season where we can't host internationals, we will keep getting teams touring us in July and August where it will just all the time.

First of all, a proper BPL is perhaps more important to our team than a particular series in the same time with a team like WI, SL, Zim, Afg. Can't argue about a series with top tier teams.

However, BPL is the BCB's money spinner, this is the tournament which helps us see the future stars, let us enjoy a period of plenty of cricket, a platform for the locals to mingle with the best players with the world and also prove how they can perform under the spotlight and against the world's best.

Obviously seasonal rain in Bangladesh happens between May-September, and the remaining time is suitable for arranging BPL. Also, since IPL is arranged in April-May, we can't host BPL then. Also, we can't even host BPL during February or March because that is the period when World cups are held which would mean we have to regularly shift the tournament.

I think November is the perfect time to host this tournament. It takes up only 5 weeks, not 8. Its BCB's failure that they cannot arrange away matches for both A team and national team during the wet months.

When do you prefer Al? While IPL is going on? Under hot summer humid heat? or in the mansoon season?
