BPL teams have already started practice in front of the tournament. Many foreign cricketers have already reached Dhaka. But AB de Villiers can not join Rangpur now. It will take some more time to come to Bangladesh.
Rangpur Ryders captain Mashrafe Mortaza confirmed the information on Wednesday. He has come to Sher-e-Bangla for the first time today after the election campaign. Villiers will not be available from the beginning. In the middle or at the end of the tournament, the 360-degree champion will join the team.
De Villiers will not play from the beginning but the other big star Chris Gayle will come in the opening day of the tournament. Besides, English batsman Alex Hells will also be in the capital tomorrow.
