BPL 2022: Final squads of all teams after players’ draft – The Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) player draft for the 2022 season took place December 27 at the Radisson Blu Water Garden in Dhaka. Following the cancellation of last year’s edition due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has pulled everything together and will organise the event from January 21 to February 18.
The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, and the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium will host the tournament’s matches. The league stage will consist of 36 games, followed by the playoffs and final.
Previously, it was discovered that teams may only select one local player prior to the selection. Further more, it has been reported that instead of four foreign players, a playing eleven will comprise of three. Mashrafe Mortaza, who hasn’t played cricket in over a year, was named to the A squad.
The competition will include six teams: Dhaka, Chattogram Challengers, Fortune Barishal, Sylhet Sunrisers, Khulna Tigers, and Cumilla Victorians. Due to the BCB’s policy of only offering one-year contracts, a number of teams have withdrawn from the league’s upcoming season.
