Chris Gayle went on to smash an unbeaten 146 off just 69 deliveries as Rangpur Riders went on to post 206 for one and later restricted Dhaka Dynamites to 149 runs in the final in Dhaka to clinch their maiden Bangladesh Premier League title.
Bangladesh Premier League 2017
The fifth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) promises to be another whirlwind tournament, with significant changes since 2016, both in terms of teams and their personnel. Sylhet Sixers – replace last year’s Barisal Bulls - From England, some perhaps surprising names are set to make an appearance - Adam Lyth (Yorkshire & Rangpur Riders), Ross Whitely (Worcestershire & Sylhet Sixers), Benny Howell (Gloucestershire & Khulna Titans) and Jofra Archer (Sussex & Khulna Titans) join the more established T20 travellers Jos Butler, Luke Wright (2nd most T20 hundreds in the world), Samit Patel and Ravi Bopara. The star-studded tournament will see Pakistani players available from mid-November, as the tournament clashes with Pakistan’s own domestic competition.
