BPL (Bangladesh Premier League) organizers are very happy because BPL ticket selling is increasing gradually. Thousands of visitors have returned home without getting tickets. After many days, Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur is over crowded.
But BPL and BBL are going to be held same time for the first time in history. Needless to say, this is a golden opportunity for the cricket enthusiasts to choose their favorite tournament. The BPL is far ahead of the BBL in two-dimensional battles, and it is accepting that Australian media itself is going to be there!
The center of attraction is Smith-Warner
The biggest attraction of this year's BPL is certainly two Australian cricketer Steven Smith and David Warner. They have been banned from international and Australian top domestic tournaments for 12 months for ball tampering last year. As a result, they can not play in the current India series for Australia and even the BBL . So, they have chosen the BPL to be involved in top-level competitive cricket.
Naturally, with the participation of Smith and Warner, more than any other event this year, the world will be more focused on the BPL. This is the first time they will be seen in the BPL. Earlier, none of the top Australian cricketers played in the BPL. But now, like Smith and Warner, Australia's best two players are currently in the BPL, the local audience is also expected to appear in the field at a much higher rate. Apart from this, Australian cricket fans must also keep an eye on the BPL to know how their national team is in exile.
There are also de Villiers and Gayle
Apart from Smith and Warner, this is another big attraction for BPL, South Africa batsman AB de Villiers. Rangpur Riders taken this big star. He is very popular of Bangladeshi fans. But before that he could never be seen in the BPL. Moreover, due to the departure of international cricket last year, visitors rarely see his game. So he plays in an area like the BPL, the overall fact that the number of followers of this tournament will increase significantly, it is no longer worth saying.
The first thing to say is Chris Gayle. He is not the new face in the BPL. But he used to play regularly in BBL also. But now he will not play in the BBL for the BPL.
England's Alex Hales, Pakistan's Yasir Shah, South Africa's Imran Tahir, and Caribbean stars Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell and Carlos Brettweit are giving more importance to BPL than BbL. Besides, Nepal and Melbourne Stars spinner Sandeep Lamichchan will also be coming in from mid-on to the BPL.
