Bangladesh Cricket League, the franchise based first-class cricket tournament, which was scheduled to resume on April 28 has been postponed. The Bangladesh Cricket Board tournament committee after holding a meeting yesterday came to the decision.

Acting secretary of the BCB tournament committee Ziaur Rahman informed the media that the franchises of the tournament has requested for few days of time before going into the game.

“The last round games of the National Cricket League will finish on April 22 for which the franchises of the BCL requested for some time for the players to rest and regroup,” said Zia yesterday.

The two third round matches of the BCL will be played on May 2 instead of April 28 at the inner and the other ground of Fatullah’s Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium. The final, which will be a five-day game, will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on May 9 instead of May 4.

The Sri Lanka series followed by the Asia Cup and the ICC World Twenty20 for both men and women meant the BCL had to take the back seat temporarily. The BCB suspended the last round along with the final of the tournament after January 18 of this year.

In the third round matches, Islami Bank East Zone will be facing Prime Bank South Zone at Fatullah Outer Stadium while defending champion Walton Central Zone will be playing against BCB North Zone.

Walton Central Zone are leading the points table with 31 points from two matches with a win and a draw. BCB North Zone is in second position after playing as many matches with a solitary point separating them from the table toppers.

Prime Bank South Zone is in third position with 17 points while Islami Bank East Zone remains at the bottom with no win and two points.
