The fifth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) is surrounded by talks and complains in all aspects- be it about the poor broadcasting, commentators, playing 5 foreign players in a team, the BPL has not been in the headlines for the best of reasons. However, the poor level of presentation in and outside the field as well as the weaker levels of commentary during the games, has been one of the biggest problems for the T20 tournament.

Presenters of BPL 2017 and the two female presenters, in particular, are now under the scanner for asking irrelevant questions to cricketers. There are three female presenters in this year’s edition, Jannatul Peya, Maria Nur and Samia Afreen. According to reports, two of them have been caught on camera delivering unwanted questions to cricketers causing much embarrassment to them.

Fans not happy either

The website bdcrictime that reported it, has not revealed the names of the two presenters. The spectators also expressed dissatisfaction about the BPL presenters this year saying that they are irritated after watching them ask irrelevant questions to the cricketers during matches. Moreover, the complains are not limited to just presenters.

BPL, this year, has failed to be decent even in its commentary department. Apart from veteran commentators like Athar Ali Khan, Shamim Chowdhury, no other commentators have been able to live up the standards this time. One of the popular newscasters of the country, DBC channel, recently reported on the issue exhibiting the ill effects of the show.

In the mid-stage of the fifth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), defending champion Dhaka Dynamites stand at the top of the point table with 7 points in 5 matches. With just 2 points each, Rangpur Riders and Rajshahi Kings are in the lowest two positions of the point table.
