After waiting for a year, people are excited again as season 5 of one of the most popular T-20 tournaments in the world, Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) will be started from 4th November in Sylhet.
With seven teams participating in the 2017 edition of the Bangladesh Premier League, 42 league games and four playoffs will be played in the tournament this year. The tournament will be played between November 4 and December 13.
Each side will play every other team twice in the league stage with the top four teams on the points table making it to the playoffs at the end of that.
The teams participating in this year’s Bangladesh Premier League are Comilla Victorians, Chittagong Vikings, Dhaka Dynamites, Rangpur Riders, Khulna Titans, Sylhet Sixers & Rajshahi Kings, and each of these sides will feature in round-robin-cum-knock-out tournament.
The tournament will obviously not be played on a strictly home and away basis because of the presence of just three venues for the tournament, ZAC Stadium in Chittagong, Sher e Bangla in Mirpur and Sylhet International Stadium in Sylhet. The first game of the BPL 2017 will see the Dhaka Dynamites face Sylhet Sixers on November 4.
