BPL 2016 Barisal Bulls Squad
Barisal Bulls – Player List for Bangladesh Premier League 2016
Barisal Bulls players list for BPL 2016 is placed here. The fourth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League will commence next month, with seven franchises set to compete to be crowned as the T20 Champions in the country. Let us evaluate the chances of Barisal Bulls for the 2016 edition of the BPL.
Over the last three editions, the Bulls have certainly gone through a rocky path with many ups and downs. In the very first version in 2012, they qualified for the semifinal with five wins and five defeats in their 10 matches. In the round of final four, the Bulls (then Barisal Burners) defeated Duronto Rajshahi by eight wickets. After a dominated performance there, they fumbled in the final as they lost to Dhaka Gladiators by eight wickets. Nonetheless, they settled for the runners-up trophy.
In the next edition, they once again finished the league stage with 10 points, but missed the mark due to a poor net run rate. However, they turned it around last year once again when they were once again crowned as the runners-up. That time, they finished at the second place in the table with 14 points. In the semifinals, they defeated Dhaka Dynamites by 18 runs, but fumbled in the final and lost to Comilla Victorians by three wickets.
This season however, they may incur a lot of troubles, having released their key performers – Kevon Cooper and Mahmudullah Riyad. To compensate, they picked up Mushfiqur Rahim and Carlos Brathwaite to list a few. Rahim recently put up a good performance in the ODI series against England, which certainly is good news for the Barisal Bulls. Other overseas players include the Pakistani spinner Mohammad Nawaz, who has been having a good time with the ball off lately.
They have also invested in a couple of First-Class English batsmen – Dawid Malan and Josh Cobb. While at the moment, it is hard to imagine such a team on paper to win the trophy, we can certainly expect them to put up a good show regardless. Barisal Bulls team squad players list for BPL 4 2016 is placed below.
