RULES OF BPL T20 2019:
For the first time in the history of any T20 leagues around the world, BPL teams will be allowed to take up to 5 foreign players in their teams in all matches if they want. As the team number has increased, there will be a shortage of local players in all the teams. Hence the decision has been taken by BPL Governing Council.
The points will be allocated after the completion of each match as follows:
Win = 2 Points
Tie/No Result = 1 Point
Loss = 0 Point
The position of the teams in the Knock-out table will be determined by the follows serially:
2. The number Of Wins
3. Net Run Rate
When 2 teams finish with the equal points in the table, then the team which won the matches played between those two teams, will be positioned above the loser team.
If both the teams have one win each, then the Net Run Rate will be considered and the team with the higher NRR will be placed above the other team.
When 3 or more teams finish with the equal points in the table, then the team/teams which won the maximum number of matches in between those equal teams will be positioned above the other teams.
If still, two or more teams have equal numbers of wins, then the Net Run Rate will be considered and the teams will be positioned according to the NRR.
When two or more teams still have equal NRR (nearly impossible), then those teams will be positioned by the drawing of lots.
If the semi-finals, eliminator or final match can’t be completed with a minimum number of overs (decided by the match officials) or a tie occurs, then one over eliminator will take place.
When the teams still face a tie in the one over eliminator, then the winner will be decided by the toss of a coin.
NET RUN RATE: The Net Run Rate is the ratio of two numbers. The numerator is the average number of runs scored by that team per over in all the matches it played. The denominator is the average number of runs scored by the other teams against that team in all the matches it played.
So, Net Run Rate = (Total Runs Scored / Total Overs Faced) – (Total Runs Conceded /Total Overs Bowled)
If a team is all out before 20 overs, then the calculation will still consider 20 overs for both the teams. That means, if a team makes 100 runs for 10 wickets in 18 overs, the average runs per over will be calculated as 100/20, not 100/18. And the opposition team’s calculation will be with 20 overs also. Net Run Rate will be calculated for the completed matches only where results can be achieved.
BPL T20 2019 OPENING CEREMONY:
There was no opening ceremony before the tournament. The 11th General Election of Bangladesh was held on 30th December 2018. Due to this reason, there was little time for the BCB to arrange an opening ceremony. In the first 3 seasons of BPL, they arranged the opening ceremony. The last two seasons were devoid of the opening ceremony due to a shortage of time and helping the flood-affected people in the country by donating the money respectively.
BPL T20 2019 TELECASTING CHANNELS:
Impress Mantra Consortium has got the right to telecast all the live matches of BPL 6 with the local TV channels GTV (Gazi TV) and Masranga TV. They will be doing this for the next BPL season (2020) also.
Radio partners of BPL 6 are Radio Bhoomi and Radio Shadhin.
