So after both the opening days of the BPL washed away, franchises have agreed to start the tournament again from 8th November with the weather of Dhaka looking clear in the last 24 hours. All seven franchises of BPL 2016-17 have agreed to rematches and have relinquished the shared points from the first four matches, which were washed out. This means that the points table will be wiped clean as the tournament is set for a restart from November 8.
The tournament was forced to restart after rain played havoc with the opening fixtures – the first four games were washed out in Mirpur without a ball bowled.
Comilla Victorian and Rajshahi Kings will play their re-match on the 30th of November after it was unclear if they were going to have a re-match.
Similarly, Rangpur Riders will take on Khulna Titans on November 10 while the matches scheduled for November 5 – Chittagong Vikings v Barisal Bulls and Comilla v Dhaka Dynamites – will now be held on November 14.
The Barisal v Khulna and Rangpur v Rajshahi matches, originally scheduled for November 6, will now be held on November 20 (in Chittagong) and November 28 (in Dhaka), respectively.
The tournament will begin again on the 8th with Comilla Victorians taking on Chittagong Vikings and Barisal Bulls fighting the Dhaka Dynamites for the win.
