This time Australia's Big Bash Cricket League (BBL) and Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) will be held at the same time. As a result, many eminent foreign cricketers were not interested to play in the BPL at the beginning. So theere was lack of big names in the draft. However, the franchisees are taking advantage of the opportunity of drafting two foreign cricketers out of the draft. So, the Rajshahi Royals drafted West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell.  

Rajshahi Royals have already signed a contract with the Caribbean star. BCB Director and Khulna Team Director Khaled Mahmud Sujan confirmed the matter. He said he received the news when he contacted Russell to draft his team Khulna. 

Bangabandhu BPL will start from December 11. The Big Bash will begin on December 17. There is no doubt that the news of Russell's joining Rajshahi will spur supporters.

Rajshahi Royals: Liton Das, Afif Hossain Dhrubo, Abu Jayed Chowdhury Rahi, Farhad Reza, Alok Kapali, Taizul Islam, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Irfan Shukur, Minhajul Abedin Afridi, Nahidul Islam, Ravi Bopara (ENG), Hazratullah Jazai (AFG), Mohammad Nawaz (PAK), Mohammad Irfan (PAK).
