Shakib Al Hasan will be one of the star Bangladesh players in the BPL.Reuters

The Bangladesh Premier League has witnessed some massive matches, with players entertaining the crowd to the core in the past three editions of the competition. The BPL 2016-17 is expected to be the same, with a number of incredible stars in all the seven teams in the competition, which will start from Friday.

The BPL, which is going to take shape for more than a month, has two new franchises -- Khulna Titans and Rajshahi Kings -- for this edition, which makes the contest even more interesting. However, another team Sylhet Super Stars has been debarred from the competition due to disciplinary reasons.

Barisal Bulls, Chittagong Vikings, Comilla Victorians, Dhaka Dynamites and Rangpur Riders are the other five teams in the BPL. All these teams have been strengthened with the inclusion of some stars in their respective line up for the fourth edition of the BPL. One hopes that the new signings will play a significant role for them this season.

Here is the new revised schedule 

What makes the BPL fascinating is the presence of some of the big stars from world cricket. Stars like Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Gayle, Thisara Perera, Sohail Tanvir, Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo and Shahid Afridi add the glitz factor in the BPL. Retired cricketers like Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara will also feature in the competition.

These foreign cricketers might garner huge eyeballs, but one should not ignore Bangladeshi players like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Al-Amin Hossain and others, who will try to prove their mettle and shine bright in the competition. With Shakib Al Hasan having been brilliant in the competition ever since its inception, the all-rounder will be keen to make another impact and help Dhaka win the fourth edition of the competition.
