After seeing the full list of foreign players in different teams many doubted that it may be Pakistan Premier League instead of BPL just because there are so many Pakistani players playing in this tournament, currently 16 in numbers! But the first day of BPL belongs to Pakistani players only because all the 4 teams were heavily helped by the presence of them.
1st Match: Chittagong Vikings vs Rangpur Riders:
In this match Chittagong Vikings batted first but they didnt have any Pakistani batter in their squad although they included fast bowler Mohammad Amir (who returns to competitive cricket after 5 years) and he was the best bowler of all the bowlers in Vikings.
