The Premier Division Cricket League will not start today, as per earlier schedule, due to a problem with the grounds.
"The Fatullah Stadium is not ready as there are few problems in the players' dressing rooms while the NSC [National Sports Council] has asked to suspend matches at Mirpur for at least ten days to complete the work on the floodlights. That's why it will not be possible to start the league tomorrow [Tuesday]," informed GS Hasan Tamim, chairman of the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM), yesterday.
"Only BKSP is ready but we cannot start the league only at one venue. We will meet with the club officials tomorrow [Tuesday] to fix a new date for the league," he added.
The delay means that the national players will be available for the most coveted 50-overs-a-side domestic competition from the very first game.
The CCDM has earlier decided not to hold the Premier T20 League.
