Bangladesh Premier League franchise Chattogram Challengers announced on Thursday that they picked Afif Hossain as a direct signing local player for the ninth edition of the tournament.

Franchises can have a direct local signing while they can sign as many foreign cricketers as they like outside the draft this year in the BPL.

The players’ draft is scheduled to take place on November 23 where seven franchises will form their respective teams with the available cricketers in the draft list.

“It is a great pleasure to inform you that Chattogram Challengers have picked Afif Hossain as the directly signed local player outside the draft,” Yasir Alam, chief operating officer of Challengers, informed through a text message in WhatsApp.

Meanwhile, three-time BPL champions Comilla Victorians retained pacer Mustafizur Rahman for the upcoming edition of BPL. 

“Victorians retains the Fizz! Back To Back Seasons for Mr. Cutter Master.  Let's hear #WinOrWin slogan for Mustafizur Rahman,” Comilla made the announcement on their official Facebook page on Wednesday.
