But most of the citizens are against inviting Bollywood actors and actress as it’s a local arrangement.

Venues for BPL T20 2017 Matches

  1. Chittagong Stadium.
  2. Sher e Bangla Stadium.

Quota for Foreign Player in BPL T20 2017

Five foreign players are allowed in 2017–18 Bangladesh Premier League. Due to the request of franchisors, BPL governing council increase the quota by one. It was only 4 before.

In every match, if franchisor wishes to play with five foreign player its ok, but the minimum should be 3 in every game. We applaud this decision!

BPL T20 2017 Total Matches

Authority members of BPL Governing Council mentioned that “if we got eight teams in Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) T20 2017, there would be full 60 matches throughout the season”.

All BPL 2017 franchisors are eager to win this league cup, and many great players have been hired for this season. Unfortunately, Sabbir Rahman and Soumya Sarkar are not playing for any team this year. We hope they will soon find a better team to play.

Barisal Bull wasn’t able to submit the form in due date, so they are ousted.
