The second phase of the Bangladesh Premier League will get underway Thursday after a 19-day break.

The top-flight was initially scheduled to resume Monday but got pushed back by three days due to inclement weather.

BFF senior vice president Abdus Salam Murshedy said, “The first phase of the league was competitive. I hope the second phase will also be exciting. It is starting after a few days of the original date owing to the weather. Besides Dhaka, there are five venues throughout the country which host the matches. The clubs were scheduled to be there but couldn’t due to bad weather. To add to that, there was also some complication with the sponsor.”

The second phase of the league is likely to end on August 8. There is a three-week break between this time for the Eid-ul-Fitr and national team’s assignments.

Newbie Bashundhara Kings lead the 13-team standing with 34 points from 12 matches while reigning champion Abahani Limited are second with 30 points.
