BPL to resume on June 26 as Kings face Rahamatganj on opening day

The second phase of Bangladesh Premier League will resume with the match between defending champions Bashundhara Kings and Rahamatganj Muslim Friends Society on June 26 at the Bangabandhu National Stadium.
 
In the next match, Dhaka Abahani Limited will take on Mohammedan Sporting Club Limited at the same venue on June 27.
 
MSC agreed to participate in the league after their seven out of 12 players tested negative for Covid-19 in the second test.
 
The decision was taken in the virtual emergency meeting of the professional football league committee, chaired by football federation Senior Vice-President Abdus Salam Murshedy, on Wednesday.
 
The matches will be held at the BNS until June 29. If the lockdown ends on June 30, then the matches will be shifted to the previous venues in Munshiganj, Cumilla and Tongi.
 
But if the lockdown continues, then the federation will find alternate venues inside Dhaka.
 
The meeting also decided to bodily shift the league fixtures if any match gets suspended due to rain on the match day.
