Who are the Past Champions

As far as the extravaganza is concerned, Rangpur Riders won the erstwhile edition, beating the Dynamites in the final. However, the Dynamites remain to be the most successful team in the BPL, having got their hands as many as thrice on the coveted trophy ever since the BPL’s inception back in 2012. Comilla Victorians won the tournament back in 2015. The BPL was also marred with spot-fixing scandals and it was provisionally terminated, but it somehow managed to find its feet.  Being a T20 event, BPL is most likely to generate significant viewership. Also, because some of the big names would be taking part, this edition’s tournament is expected to be keenly followed worldwide.
