Update : 01 Nov 2015, 06:50 PM

Bangladesh Premier League franchise Chittagong Vikings had its grand launching ceremony held at Radisson Blu Hotel yesterday. Owned by DBL Sports Ltd, a concern of DBL Group, the franchise launched their logo, theme song and jersey for the third edition of BPL.

Chittagong Vikings chairman Abdul Wahed, managing director Abdul Jabbar, vice-chairman Abdur Rahim and deputy managing director Mohammed Adul Quader were present during the occasion. Chittagong Vikings’ icon player and captain, Tamim Iqbal along with two pacers Taskin Ahmed, Shafiul Islam and Anamul Haque Bijoy were also present.

Chairman of the side, Wahed believes he and his team management have been able to put up a balanced side. “I think we have been able to put a balanced side given that it is tough to make a team from a players’ draft. We have seven batsmen in the side led by Tamim but I believe the bowling department is stronger. We have Pakistan bowlers Mohammad Amir and Saeed Ajmal along with Bangladesh sensation Taskin Ahmed. I believe our team will be able to compete well in the competition.

“We (DBL) might be owners of the Chittagong franchise but the team belongs to the people of Chittagong. I hope Chittagong Vikings will be supported from day one till finish and with the support we will go a long way in the tournament,” he added.
