The inauguration of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) is drawing nearer, the cricket-hype among the cricket-loving people of the country is increasing with a new height as Bangladesh is going to host such a new format of cricket for the first time. The illustrious players across the cricket world are communicating regularly with the BPL authority for playing the tournament in Bangladesh.

Around six foreign players from three Test playing nations including two players from Pakistan, three from England and one from Australia have expressed their earnest eagerness to play in the upcoming Bangladesh Premier League on Tuesday. Of them, all-rounders Shahid Khan Afridi and Abdul Razzak from Pakistan, Melbourne Renegades batsman Aaron James Finch of Australia, Somerset batsman James Hildreth, right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-pace bowler Darren Ian Stevens and another Somerset batsman Peter David Trego from England are in the row.

Chairman of BPL governing council Gazi Ashraf Hossain Lipu further informed that Afridi and Razzak are committed to play the entire BPL if there was no assignment for them to play for Pakistan.

Member secretary of the BPL governing council Sirajuddin M Alamgir informed that after talking with the players and respective board officials, they made a list of 120 foreign players, who gave their tacit consent and commitment to us in the preliminary stage of the BPL.

“We didn’t get any name from India. We hope we will get to know about the names of players from India within seven days or less time.”

Alamgir replying to a question said that the BPL had commitment to organise the auction of the teams and players in Thailand or Singapore. But we could not do the thing due to the shortage of time.”

Terming the preparation of the ICC World Cup Cricket, the director of the Bangladesh Cricket Board said, “We got six more months to take preparation ahead of the flagship event but this time we just get two months for the groundwork of the BPL.
