A few days ago, the chief executive of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) indicated that no cricketer of the country will be given permission to play in any foreign league or tournament during the BPL. In that case Al-Amin, Shafiul and Ripon will not play in the Big Bash even if they get a team. After such apprehension, whether they will get a team from the Big Bash draft or not, it remains to be seen.
