BPL apex body discussion with three franchisees fruitful

Players’ draft in mid Oct; Dhaka to start procedure after receiving new documents

Mahbubul Anam, draft commissioner and member of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Governing Council branded their first day discussions with three franchisees as fruitful, stating that they will soon send letter of intent (LoI) to them from the board.

Finishing all the procedures within September 15, Anam said that they want to complete the players draft within the mid-October.

He also said that they informed the franchisees to take their mental preparation for the next and new season of the BPL.  

BPL Governing Council held their first discussion with Dhaka Dynamites Franchisee. They then sat with Khulan and Rajshahi franchisees to discuss the new cycle of the BPL later on. Mahbubul Anam and BPL governing council member secretary H I Mallick spoke to media after holding meeting with the three franchisees.

“We’ve discussed with three franchisees. We talked first with Dhaka franchisee, then Khulna and Rajshahi Franchisees later on,” said Mabubul Anam.

“All the discussions have been fruitful. They all informed that they have agreed to saturate with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in the next cycle,” Anam told media at the reception center of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.

“Franchisees have given their opinions and we all have heard it. They will accept the decision and the state of the BCB what will be given in the new cycle and agreement,” he added.

The BPL draft commissioner said that they will attach the rules and regulations of the BPL with the new agreement papers to make it more transparent and dispute-free what will be settled after consulting with franchisees.  

“BPL Governing Council informed them about our rules and regulations. They all agreed that the rules and regulation the council have devised will be attached with the contract for the next four seasons. How it’ll run in the next four seasons will be written in the agreement. There will be no difficulty,” he said.

When asked about inducting home and away concept in the next BPL, he said that it’s not possible to adopt the concept in the upcoming season of the BPL because of the lack of infrastructure in some franchisee areas. “We’ve to have proper infrastructure and international standard in the seven franchisee areas. But we’re yet to reach at this level,” he replied.

“But we’ll try to give BPL matches in the maximum venues in the country if the timeframe and schedule we’ve for the BPL will have to organize it. We could go in the maximum venue if the franchisees give their consent on the basis of the timeframe,” he added.

“We’re completely ready for the BPL. We’ve decided to start BPL on December 6. We’ve enough time to complete all the procedure of the BPL. Players draft will be held in mid-October. Each franchisee will get one and half-a-months to furnish their team. We’ve informed the dates of these things to the franchisees. They’re taking mental preparation. They have agreed to continue BPL. Letter of Intent will soon be given to these franchisees from the board and take steps to sign the next agreement with them,” Anam said.

Coming out from meeting with the BPL governing council, Dhaka Dynamites CEO Obeid Nizam said that they will start their BPL activities after getting papers from the council.

“As the BPL will start afresh, there will be new rules and regulations what we are yet to know about it. We don’t know it in detail and then how we will move forward,” said Dynamites CEO Obeid Nizam.

“After getting those things, we will decide how we will proceed on in the new BPL, where there will be no retention policy. It’ll be a new cycle. For it, new rules will be formulated. So, we want to start our move to see all the things,” Nizam told media.

However, BPL member secretary H.I Mallick said that franchisees will get opportunity to rope in players directly but they are yet to fix the number of it.

“The first edition of the four-season cycle will be started from zero. The retention policy will be remained in the next three seasons. But franchisee will get chance to pick player or players directly what we are yet to finalise it,” he said.

“Our meeting with franchisees will be finished within this month. We hope all the process will be finished within the mid-September,” he added.

Owner of the Khulna franchisee Kazi Inam Ahmed and Rajshahi Kings CEO Tahmid Azizul Haque shared the identical views. They said that they have put forward to two suggestions including revenue sharing, home and away concept coupled with franchisee fee. Even, they proposed to arrange BPL matches in each franchisee area despite being small scale.
