Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Governing Council will invite the existing six BPL franchisees within the next 48 hours to negotiate their contract for the upcoming season of the BPL.

Along with that, the governing council has given an expression of interest (EoI) for two BPL franchisees ahead of the seventh edition of the domestic Twenty20 Cricket Tournament.

Of them, the owner of the Chittagong Vikings dispatched letter to BPL governing council informing their unwillingness to discontinue their run in the BPL and the second one was given for a new franchisee as they have launched their activities for the next BPL where they have set a target of the maximum eight franchisee teams.

BPL draft commissioner Mahbubul Anam made the revelation at a press conference at the media block of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in Mirpur yesterday.

Anam was flanked by BPL governing council chairman Sheikh Sohel, its member secretary I H Mallick coupled with members Jalal Younus, Akram Khan, Lokman Hossain Bhuiyan and BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury on the occasion.

In the face of some certain issues related to the tournament’s future editions, BPL Governing Council held meetings on Saturday and Sunday, from where they have taken some decisions to address those things.

The (BCB) and the right holders of seven existing BPL franchisee teams executed a Franchise Agreement under which the right holders were granted rights to the teams till the 6th edition of BPL T20 Tournament. With the conclusion of the 6th edition of BPL T20, which was held in 2019, the first cycle of the tournament is now considered complete, which also marks the expiry of the tenure of the franchise agreements with the respective right holders.

Apart from that, the council has decided that the duration/tenure of the second cycle of the BPL T20 will be for a further period of four editions/seasons (7th, 8th, 9th & 10th edition/season).

The relevant processes, player draft/auction for holding the next edition of BPL T20 will be set in motion after the execution of the fresh franchisee agreement/contract.

The 7th edition of the BPL will see an open draft/auction for listed players (local and overseas) on all categories.

When asked about the recent signing of the players including Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim, Anam said that the players’ draft will newly be made for BPL-7 under which the fresh contract of all the players with the new franchisees will be invalid.

“No one has made any contract or agreement with BCB. There is no relationship with BCB or BPL Governing Council what they have done,” said Mahbubul Anam, who is also Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director and its vice president.

“We’ve no need to acknowledge it. Even if there is no need for discussing it on behalf of the BCB,” Anam told media.

“If we have no agreement with anyone and its rules and regulations are not mentioned, there will be no acceptability of it whatever you do,” he added.

He said that the option of the player’s retention will come into effect from the BPL-8 onwards as the ensuing edition will start afresh,” he added.

“Letters from the BPL governing council have been dispatched to the existing six franchisees so that they could be come for mutual agreement. If we expect them all, there is no guarantee of them to stay in the agreement.  If any franchisee is default, BCB will not accept it until they will clear their position.

“There is no need to send a letter or its acknowledgement. Everybody has to abide by laws. It won't be possible to formulate any specific rule for anyone. If fresh cycle is made and if BPL governing council starts afresh, there will be no availability of players for anyone.”

“As per the BPL agreement clause (3.1), each franchisee will have entitled to renew their agreement on mutual consensus, beyond the sixth BPL tasks.”

BPL governing council will take decision of contract paper within this month. Along with that, they will decide how many franchisees will take part in the BPL-7. We’ll invite the existing franchisees for negotiating within the next 48 hours whether they continue or discontinue. If both parties are satisfied then a franchisee will continue.
