The base price for the foreign players was increased this year. The base price for A+ category is $200,000 while the base prices for those under A,B,C,D and E will be $50,000, $75,000, $50,000, $30,000 and $20,000 respectively.

The league was expected to be hosted in Bangladesh in October earlier, but with the national elections expected to happen in November, the provision of security might have been an issue. As a result, the BPL 2018-19 will now begin from January 5 and will go all the way up to February 8 as the seven teams will fight it out for the top four playoffs spot. The latest change in schedule will also see BCB host Zimbabwe in two Tests and three ODIs as they look to get their Test match stocks up. The exact Bangladesh Premier League schedule of BPL-2019 is now announced.

The seven teams that participated in the previous season were Comilla Victorians, Dhaka Dynamites, Khulna Titans, Rangpur Riders, Sylhet Sixers, Rajshahi Kings and Chittagong Vikings. The same teams are featuring in the next edition of the tournament as well. The Riders will start off as the defending champions after they won the title by beating Dhaka in the final last year.

Teams play on a home and away basis and the top four sides make it to the playoffs. However, matches are not exactly played at home and away, and are distributed among a set, pre-decided venues. Last season, for instance, the league was played at three venues, Chittagong, Dhaka and Sylhet. A total of 42 games will be played during the league stage of the tournament with each side playing 12 of them. The top four will then be involved in the playoffs where the top two sides will get two chances to make it to the final.

How can one watch the Bangladesh Premier League live?

There are various options to be able to do that in various countries. In Bangladesh, it’s the Gazi TV which is the host broadcaster and the matches can be watched live on Maasranga as well. The other countries include India, where it is live on DSport, Lemar TV in Afghanistan, Flow TV in the Caribbean, Geo Super in Pakistan, Star Times in South Africa and the rest of Africa, Prime TV in the UK, Willow.tv in USA and Canada and Cricingif online for Middle East and North Africa.

How were the players selected in the Bangladesh Premier League squads?

The squads are made up on domestic and overseas players. A Draft was held this year for the selection after a few players were retained by all teams. Four overseas players will make it to the playing XI during the tournament.

Teams were allowed to retain up to four players in their team. Two other players could be bought from outside the draft while the rest of the squad were selected through the BPL Draft.

The forthcoming edition of the tournament will see teams allowed the use of DRS. This will be the first time in the history of BPL T20 that the umpiring decision-review system will be used. According to an official statement: “There will be review [UDRS] in the BPL. Each team will have a review in every innings. There will be one foreign umpire in each match.”
