The top four teams on the BPL 2019-20 points table will qualify for the playoffs. And then after the playoffs, we will have two finalists. The BPL 2019-20 will be played across three venues in Dhaka, Chittagong, and Sylhet.
Like many other T20 leagues, Bangladesh Premier League T20 2019-20 features well-known international cricketers like Chris Gayle (will miss some of the first matches), Shahid Afridi and Andre Russell. Sadly, the Bangladesh cricket team fans won’t see their favourite star Shakib Al Hasan in action during the league as he is under suspension by ICC.
