2017

Originally, the season was scheduled to start on 1 October 2018 and end on 16 November 2018.[3] However, in May 2018, it was reported that the tournament might be moved to January 2019, because of security concerns around the Bangladeshi general election, which took place in December 2018.[4] In July 2018, it was confirmed that the tournament would start in January 2019.[5][6] For this edition of the tournament, the Decision Review System (DRS) were used for the first time.[7]

In the final match, Comilla Victorians defeated Dhaka Dynamites by 17 runs to win their second title.[8] In the final match, Tamim Iqbal was awarded the man of the match award, after scoring 141 not out.[9] Rilee Rossouw was the leading run scorer in the tournament with 558 runs. Shakib Al Hasan was the leading wicket taker with 22 wickets and also won the player of the tournament award.

Draft and squadsEdit

By 30 September 2018 the team franchises announced the names of their retained players for the tournament and their icon players. A players' draft was initially scheduled to take place on 25 October 2018.[7] However, the date was moved to 28 October due to a schedule clash with the ODI series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.[10]

The rest of the players were bought from the Players' Draft, which was held on 28 October 2018.[11] Liton Das and Mustafizur Rahman were new additions to the list while Soumya Sarkar and Sabbir Rahman were excluded from the list.[12][13][14] Initially, Steve Smith was barred from playing in the tournament by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).[15] However, the BCB overturned its decision, allowing Smith to take part in the competition.[16][17]
