The Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) governing council shifted the date for the player draft of the sixth edition of the BPL to October 28 from October 25.
The player draft will decide local and overseas player distribution for the tournament.
As per an earlier announcement, the tournament was scheduled to start from January 5 but yesterday's press release said that it is scheduled to kick off at the start of 2019.
The BPL was postponed this year as its proximity with the general elections could create logistical problems in staging the tournament. Recently however, BCB president Nazmul Hassan informed that the two home series against Zimbabwe and West Indies were also reasons behind the postponement.
