BPL uniting mainstream cricketers leaving behind conflict
CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) is the most lucrative event in domestic cricket. However, in one misery, it is on the same level with all other events. No team has its own practice facility. So when the event came, the academy ground in Mirpur was buzzing with cricketers and coaching staff. During practice, fear spreads around, tell me not to fly again and fall! Some impeccable pictures can also be seen in that crowd. BPL seems to lift the walls of the opponent.
As soon as he saw Mashrafe bin Mortuza with his new hairstyle on the academy ground, he shouted, ‘Ghazni!’ Another frame is more eye-catching. Comilla head coach Mohammad Salauddin is showing Tamim Iqbal of Dhaka what to do with his hands. It is difficult to understand which team is which by looking at each chat scene scattered on the field
“We (Comilla Victorians) did not have practice today,” said Salauddin. That’s how I went to the field. Six teams practice on one field. So when I go to the field, I meet many people and talk. I have also met Tamim. He wanted to know one thing, I showed it. ‘But as a teacher, he did not shy away from his responsibility towards the students. Any coach would do it. ‘But as soon as the BPL enters the field, he will keep this sense of responsibility for a while,’ said Salauddin. When the tournament is over, my door will be open again for anyone. ‘
Franchise cricket has lifted the wall of ‘hostility’. Franchise cricket is played in many countries of the world. In it, the opposing cricketer of one league enters the same dressing room of another league. So there is a lot of competition in only 22 yards, everyone outside is everyone’s friend. The scene of Mashrafe, Tamim, Mushfiqur, Nurul Hasan chatting with their hands on their shoulders is not unexpected.

There is more to this happy family affair for those involved in franchise cricket. Such an example can be seen in this BPL. Khaled Mahmood and Nazmul Abedin Fahim will form an alliance like the war plan of Fortune Barisal! The first is the head coach of the franchise. The second is the mentor of Fortune Barisal. But last November, these two were candidates for a post in the BCB elections. Although there was no public outcry, the two had two options. This time BPL has brought the two rivals on the same path again. Fortune has also formed a team at the same table to ensure a bright future for Barisal on the day of the Cricketers’ Draft.
