DHAKA: The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has opted to take control of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) after a dispute with six of the seven owners of the domestic Twenty20 competition’s franchises.

BCB president Nazmul Hassan has said the Board has taken action owing to a number of issues, including the planned staging of a second edition of the BPL in 2019 to tie in with the centenary of the birth of ‘Bangabandhu’ Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the father of the nation, and a spat between teams over the move of national team star Shakib Al Hasan.

“We were supposed to rework the agreements with the franchises this year,” Hassan said, according to the ESPNcricinfo website. “We have met them in between, we have had lots of meetings, and they have made a number of demands. But these are in direct conflict with the BPL model we have been working with. It’s not possible to accommodate the demands.
