Rangpur want to make retention of a local player compulsory

Riders agree to sign new BPL 4-year cycle
SPORTS REPORTER, Dhaka

Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Governing Council held talks with Rangpur Riders on the second day of their meeting with the hopes of the agreement and rules of the four-year new cycle of the BPL by resolving all the disagreements.

Riders expressed their willingness to remain in the BPL and agreed to sign the new cycle of the BPL.

Rangpur Riders CEO Ishtiaq Sadek spoke to media while coming out from the meeting, saying that they have put forward a proposal to the BPL council of direct retention regarding a local player.

He also said that they want the GC made the matter of retention of a local player as direct and compulsory.

“I think Shakib issue is not a big factor here. As our franchisee agreement had been finished, the BPL GC wanted to know about our interest of renewing the contract. Bashundhara Group wants to stay as Rangpur Riders,” said Ishtiaq Sadek.

“The GC told us that they want to bring some changes in their new agreement. So they seek to know about our suggestions regarding it. We’ve agreed with them in most cases. As a team has been playing for the last two years and they will play in the coming days. They had needed to have a code of conduct of playing for the next four years. There is a matter of player's retention what we have sought to them,” Sadek told media.

“Last year we had some fresh signing what the board wants to give us. There will be nothing of icon players right now. In that case, we have wanted a local player from direct signing what we wanted to the board as a mandatory,” he added.

The Riders CEO said that they put forward the proposal when the council informed them each franchisee could pick two or three foreign players through direct signing. Later the council told them to send it as proposal what they will discussion for consideration.

He also said that the council will be agreed with their proposal if the other franchisees will share the same sentiment.

“It was told us from the board that they will be done two or three foreign players as direct signing what they will inform us later on. Then we told them why a local will not be mandatory signing,” he viewed.

They then told us to send it as a proposal and they will then inform us. The way they told us I am sure they will be agreed with our proposal because BPL becomes successful because of the franchisees,” he told. “BPL is a big thing. I think, if the other franchisees will voice the identical views, the council will since be agreed with our proposal,” he added.

When asked about the increase of the franchise fee, Ishtiaq said, “I asked them about franchise fee and they informed me that the matter is in the agreement. Each year it will be increased by 10 percent. This year it’ll also be increased as a minimum.”

“Actually we didn’t discuss revenue sharing from BPL,” he said in response to another media query.

However, Sylhet franchisee were also scheduled to sit with the BPL governing council but they did not come due to the abrupt illness of their chief patron and former finance minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith as Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director and BPL GC member Jalal Younus informed.

Jalal said while going out from the BCB-Management Office of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur that they (Sylhet) might be come to discuss with them tomorrow (Wednesday).
