The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has canceled the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) to be held this year due to the continued escalation of the Kovid-19 epidemic. BCB President Najmul Hasan announced the decision.

Inaugurating the 50-over tournament to be played between the three teams at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Dhaka, Najmul said, “BPL will not happen this year.” See you next year. We don’t want to miss a match, but everything depends on the circumstances.

He said that this decision was taken due to participation of foreign cricketers and other matters related to operation and execution.

Nazmul said, ‘Whenever there is talk of BPL, the need of foreign cricketers is discussed. Apart from this, there is also the matter of organizing matches. If we can do this in Bangladesh, then we have no objection.

The BCB chief also ruled out the possibility of holding the tournament on foreign soil, as the IPL is being played in the UAE this time.

He said, ‘I don’t think it will be easy (organizing tournaments abroad). A bio-safe environment has been created in the UK and UAE for IPL and this is not possible for everyone. It is impossible for us to spend so much money.
