This year the opening ceremony of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) is not being started as the governing council of the lucrative T20 tournament have given hands to donate the funds allocated for the purpose to flood victims.


BPL governing council chairman Afzalur Rahman Sinha informed reporters about this development today.


“We all know the fatal crisis the country is in because of the floods,” Sinha said. “Keeping that in mind we don’t think it will be right to hold an opening ceremony, which is why we have decided to donate the money we would have spent on an opening ceremony to the flood victims.


“Next Friday, the BCB president [Nazmul Hassan] and some other board officials will visit Sirajganj to distribute relief to the victims there,” Sinha added.
