Default BPL 1st Edition - Reviews

So, the tourney comes to an end then, finally. How do you rate the tournament?

One main con I could think of is the organization which has been awful - the whole semi-final conundrum ruined a fairly decently organized tournament. Other than that, I can't complain much more. Production values were much better than expected, quite a few Bangladeshi players did shine, and it would encourage more youngsters to turn to cricket - and take it as a serious career option. Hopefully the overall quality would improve the coming years.

Oh and our whole issue with Pakistani players (IPL that is) have been a blessing in disguise for BPL, you'd easily get the support of Pakistani fans each season.

And for the record, I've seen their Faysal Bank T20 series too, which is absolutely crap. BPL has been really good compared to the quality of other subcontinent IPL spin offs. And passionate fans always turn up and make it a big success.

Dont know why people are complaining abt Pakistani players, except couple (Khalid latif and Reza Dar) the rest did an awesome job...

Now I think they should have a playoff game between DG and CK. Exhibition match, or DG vs rest of the country.

The Good - the concept, entertainment, competition, overseas stars, buzz - everyone at my hospital from the department heads to the nurses, reception people, tech guys, cafeteria staff, OPD, Pre/post Op patients, friends and family all across the waiting rooms...spoke of nothing but the BPL.
The Bad - ticketing fiasco(the more expensive tickets need to be rethought - they are the seats that continued to stay empty and it takes away from the atmosphere, save for the SF matches and the Final)
The ugly - the brouhaha over the SF spot, the standard of fielding overall(a real let down), the media wh0ring by the owners and finally Bindu - Go away already.

I just want to hear how many teams will go to CL T20

I think 1 team at least, 2 would be very nice but doubt that BBs will shine as Hodge and gayle will probably be playing for other sided\s

It'll be one team, and even then I bet Dhaka will be involved in some playoff with a Kiwi or Caribbean side to actually qualify for the actual tournament.

- The return of the King- Lord of the Kings- Mashrafee bin Mortuza
- The black panther and The Grey Elias Sunny and the army of SLAs

The bad

- Bollywood Dhamaka meets Lahore/Punjab warriors ( Sheena vs. half pak teams)
- Father of Cricket interview!!

I would rate both equally but I believe Arafat sunny is more of a t20 and odi bowler who is the best(after Shak ofcourse) in the country to bowl in the pp.

Sunny more of a test bowler and t20 and odi too but not in the pp.

HHS...nice cute lil' summary Dhakablues da!

Great Tournament.
Congrats BPL for successfully completing it.
I believe our BPL would be the next big thing after IPL. As Murali said it...we did something that SRI or PAK couldn't do...we arranged BPL and now completed it successfully without the blessings of BCCI. Next year, I wouldn't be surprised to see big players from India, Srilanka, and other nations..oh and if u miss siddons..he will be here as well

And for the record, don't buy the whole "T20 spoils youngsters" crap. For us, IPL has been quite beneficial coming to the think of it - Kohli was in the team based on his IPL performances primarily, and then all key young players like Ashwin, Yadav etc play IPL too.

I think it would be far better for BD, the first reason being the exposure these players get - with proper coaching staff and international players. Doesn't matter which format - it's all valuable.

Positive rule but really didnt come to much of an effect. I mean only 1 associate player who probably wont be picked.

The associates representing in the counties, thats a good thing

But at least we have a rule..IPL wont even think about associates players, exc. Tendo though
