Default Dhaka league (I am a little stomped)

Three games on Day 1



Sports Reporter


Holders Victoria Sporting Club take on the Development Squad (Under-19) of Bangladesh Cricket Board as the GrameenPhone Premier Division Cricket League begins tomorrow.

Favourites and last year's runners-up Mohammedan Sporting Club face promotees Indira Road Krira Chakra at the Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium while Bangladesh Biman play Orient Sporting Club at the Fatullah Cricket Stadium.


The CCDM (Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolitan) released a partial fixture yesterday.


The winners of the first round matches except the Development Squad will get six points while points will be equally distributed to both sides if a match is tied.


Teams winning against the Development Squad will not get six points. Instead, they will be awarded two bonus points. The Board team who are allowed to participate only in the first round one-day matches, will not get any points at all.


Top six teams after the first round will play in the super league, which will be four-day affairs.

Although CCDM chairman Shah Nurul Kabir on Wednesday said that there would be three-day matches in the super league, but most of the clubs later opted for four-day matches in order to get results.

Probably the first tournament in cricketing history that starts off as a one day affair and then turns into a four day affair half way through. Bizzare!

What is this ? A one-day tournament or a four-day tournament ?
While this does surprise me as there won't be any ONE-DAY champs (unless we only count the first round as the one day championship and the second round as four-day championship.

Good thing about this ? This completely SHUTS people like me who have been running their big mouths about how the single league format destroys the purpose of having the National league (with players only getting 5/6 first class matches a year). IN fact, this is better as the top teams will be more serious than the district sides.

Of course, BCB did great by adding the Dev side in the first round/one-day championship.
