BPL 2023: Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Sylhet Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

After the legs at Dhaka and Chittagong, BPL would now to Sylhet for the next phase of the tournament before the knockout games begin. Here, we look at the pitch report of Sylhet International Cricket Stadium and the weather conditions in Sylhet for BPL 2023.

The Bangladesh Premier League has suffered a lot in terms of popularity and attracting quality overseas cricketers. With BBL, SA20 and ILT20 happening at the same time, BPL could have made an early move to hire cricketers. However, there was a delay and there is hardly any viewership from the surrounding nations for this tournament.

The only advantage for this tournament is that some popular Pakistan cricketers are taking part. Mohammad Rizwan and Naseem Shah are some of the names that are attracting eyeballs for this tournament. Going forward, the board must take careful steps in order to ensure that BPL gets a good spot in the cricketing calendar.
