BPL 2022 Player draft released, Dhaka ropes in Tamim, Mashrafe Mortaza


BPL 2022 Player draft released, Dhaka roped in Tamim for the upcoming season


The Player Draft for BPL 2022 has been released & the BCB backed Dhaka team has signed Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah & Mashrafe bin Mortaza for the BPL 2022. Though the three players were placed in the highest A category they were not picked up by any team as direct signing until this morning.

The overnight change in the Dhaka franchise’s ownership paved way for Mahmudullah as he turned out to be the direct signing of the team. BCB decided to change the bidder for the Dhaka team- Rupa fabrics limited & Marn Steel Limited & Marn Steel Limited as they failed to pay the bank guarantee of BDT Five Crore.

‘We still have some offers in our hand for the Dhaka franchise after we decided not to continue with the initial bidder as they failed to fulfill all our requirements on time. Now we are just trying to figure out the financial strength of the interested parties as we had some bad experiences in the past regarding payment of franchises and don’t want to make a similar mistake,” BPL governing council member secretary Ismail Haider had told Cricbuzz on Monday after the players draft that took place in a hotel in Dhaka.

BCB Selector Hasibul Bashar & Mahmudullah were bidding for the Dhaka team in the Player draft & the T20I captain included Tamim & Mortaza into the team within the first three calls. This move will mark the inclusion of the senior-most trio in the team for the first time in BPL history.

”I always had a belief we would play again together. I am happy to see that we will play together again,” Mahmudullah said. ”Tamim is also with us and we have a lot of experienced players in our team. So I hope if we can execute it in the field, we have the chance to do well in BPL.”

Tamim added that he is looking forward to playing with Mashrafee and Mahmudullah. “Really it is fantastic to see all three in one team and that’s why our team has been strong. And it will be a lot of fun in the dressing room if the three of us are together.

”I don’t want to say anything about captaincy because Riyad (Mahmudullah) Vai is still holding T20 team captaincy and he deserves the leadership role. Our job is to support him,” Tamim added.

Cumilla Victorians who are back into the tournament after missing the last edition included Mustafizur Rahman, Faf du Plessis, Sunil Narine, and Moeen Ali as their direct signings, apart from picking Liton Das and Oshane Thomas, among others.

Victorians coach Mohammad Salahuddin who had the chance to include a senior player in the team as they were the first one to make a call in the Player draft said that he is looking to give opportunities to young players.

”It’s true we could have picked Tamim or Mashrafee as we were the first caller in the draft but we had other plans and we want to provide exposure to some youngster,” said Salahuddin
