BPL team rosters: Who is playing where

The Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) is set to start on November 2 and Rajshahi Kings securing the services of ‘cutter master’ Mustafizur Rahman was the highlight  of the players’ draft ahead of the razzle-dazzle of the tournament.

Since the franchises have retained four local players from the previous edition and brought in foreign players from outside the players' draft, the excitement surrounding the event diminished to some extent. Each franchise had to select a minimum seven local and two foreign players from the draft.

Sylehet Sixers are coming back in the form of Surma Sylhet Sixers as they return after a year’s gap.

We take a look at the rosters of the BPL sides after the players’ draft.
