Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
A day ahead of the start of the 2019-20 edition of the Bangladesh Premier League, West Indies allrounder Andre Russell revealed why he preferred this T20 tournament over the Big Bash League in Australia. The two tournaments often occupy the same space in the global cricket calendar, forcing players to choose one or the other. "The tournament (BPL) is more fun and it is shorter and so less time away from home," Russell told reporters when he was asked why he picked BPL. Russell, who has been appointed captain of the Rajshahi Royals, has previous success in this tournament - winning the title with Comilla Victorians and Dhaka Dynamites. He brings leadership experience from his time at the Jamaica Tallawahs, and hopes to be 'up for the challenge'. Rajshahi will begin their BPL season on December 12, the second day of the tournament, with a match against Dhaka Platoon. Their squad contains plenty of experienced cricketers including Shoaib Malik, Ravi Bopara and Russell himself.
Captain of the Brisbane Heat Chris Lynn has announced that he will only be playing T20 cricket going forward. The decision he took after much deliberation and in order to continue enjoying the sport. Explosive Australian opener Chris Lynn said the increasingly convoluted cricket schedule and a desire to simply continue enjoying the game were key factors in determining his decision. "I'm really enjoying the Twenty20 format and the opportunities that can be pursued in that format around the world are exciting,” he said. Lynn is now looking forward to the start of the KFC Big Bash League after he was named player of the tournament in the UAE. Chris Lynn does not hold any hard feelings for Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) which released him for next year's edition. "I have got a really good relationship with the KKR owners, support staff, head coach. There are no hard feeling there at all. More important is keeping those relationships nice and strong," Lynn said after making a statement in the ongoing Abu Dhabi T10 League by scoring the highest-ever individual score in the format for Maratha Arabians.
