According to Bangladesh Premier League Governing Council (BPL GC), Khulna Titans had violated BPL regulations. They announced their icon player’s name for this season too early.
Khulna have grouped up very strongly as the BPL-5 is three months away. Mahela Jayawardene is the head coach of the team. They have brought in players like Chris Lynn, Kyle Abbott, Shadab Khan and others.
Mahmudullah Riyad was the icon player and captain of the Titans for the last season. He took his side to the third position. The franchise decided to retain him for their second BPL season. But they had made a mistake here.
Mahmudullah was announced as Khulna’s icon for this year’s BPL in June. He took part in a program at Radisson Blue Hotel in Dhaka when Jayawardene came in Bangladesh in June. But the Bangladesh Cricket Board did not mention any icon player’s name at that time.
BPL GC member Jalal Yunus has informed that Khulna made a violation in BPL rules and regulations. According to him, it was against the system.
“They had made a technical mistake here. They should not have announced their icon player’s name too early as BCB hadn’t named the icon names. But yes, we all know that Riyad is one of the icon players. But their act was not according to the rules and regulations,” Jalal said.
Apart from Khulna, only Comilla Victorians have named their icon player. Tamim Iqbal will be set to play for his fourth BPL team.
