Three Bangladeshi cricketers – Taijul Islam, Ripon Mondol and Jahanara Alam – were nominated for the upcoming men’s and women’s editions of the Big Bash League, the tournament organisers informed on Monday.

A total of 376 male cricketers from 29 countries were listed in the BBL 13 draft while WBBL 9 featured 116 players from 19 countries.

The overseas player draft will be held on September 3. The men’s tournament will start on December 7 while the women’s tournament will get underway on October 19.

All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is the only cricketer so far from Bangladesh to feature in the prestigious tournament. Shakib represented Adelaide Strikers during the 2014 edition of the meet while he also played for Melbourne Renegades in the next edition.
