Organised by the Bangladesh Cricket Board, the competition was earlier scheduled to start from 6 December and end on 11 January 2020. However, later on, it was decided to delay the tournament by five days.


The tournament will be named Bangabandhu BPL, to pay homage to Bangabandhu as 2020 will mark the 100th birth anniversary of the father of Bengali nation.


What’s New in BPL 7?


This season of the Bangladesh Premier League will be run solely by the BPL without taking any franchises. The responsibility to manage the team's travel and accommodation will be on the BCB. The teams have also been asked to appoint a BCB director as their team director.


The board has announced that all the teams must have an overseas fast bowler in their squad who is capable of bowling over 140 kph, one leg spinner and the wrist-spinner should bowl a complete four overs in every single match. BCB has said that these steps have been taken to help the Bangladeshi players improve their T20 game.


Teams


There will be a total of seven teams competing in the BPL 2019-20, same as last year. Earlier this year, it was announced that Chittagong Vikings will not take in this edition of the tournament and will be replaced by two new teams. However, the idea of having eight teams was cancelled and Chittagong Vikings were reinstated after being renamed to Chattogram Challengers. Comilla Victorians are the defending champions of the BPL. The final seven teams participating in the tournament are:


  1. Chattogram Challengers
  2. Comilla Warriors
  3. Dhaka Platoon
  4. Khulna Tigers
  5. Rajshahi Royals
  6. Rangpur Rangers
  7. Sylhet Thunder


The player draft was held on 17 November 2019 and all the squads were confirmed during the draft. One day before the draft, BPL Governing Council unveiled the logo of the seventh season of Bangladesh Premier League. Comilla Warriors and Rangpur Tigers will be sponsored by the Bangladesh Cricket Board. Rest five teams are being sponsored by private companies.
