There is a possibility that the national players may not feature in the Dhaka Premier League any more this season as the inclement weather has forced organisers to reschedule the fourth round of the competition.

The fourth and fifth rounds of the competition as per the new schedule will take place on April 26 and 28 respectively. However, the national players are scheduled to depart for Sussex for their conditioning camp on the night of April 26.

According to Bangladesh Cricket Board cricket operations chairman Akram Khan, the players scheduled to play on the 26th will play their games before boarding the flight. However, only time will tell if the players will actually go on to play that day.

If things go as per Akram's words, then Mosaddek Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Mushfiqur Rahim will play the fourth round and then leave.
