The Bangladeshi all-rounder further said, ‘I will do the players’ draft and auction on time and organize BPL during free time. We will have all the modern technology. There will be good broadcasters for domestic and foreign countries.
Shakib is angry with Bangladesh Cricket Board
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) started the domestic T20 league BPL in the year 2012 with 6 franchise teams. Now the number of teams has increased to seven. Shakib, the highest wicket-taker in BPL, claimed that BCB never showed any interest in popularizing the tournament. He said, ‘I do not know about the level of BPL. It is difficult to say that we cannot make it successful or do not want to do so.
