Ever since its inception, the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) has had to live with the blame of failing to match its hype, mostly due to yielding fewer boundaries and high-scoring contests — the two T20 elements that are found in abundance in the most popular franchise-based competition, the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Much of the blame was placed on the extensive use of the pitches at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium (SBNS) in Mirpur. Given how worn out the surfaces become at the home of cricket due to year-round action, it is no surprise that the Chattogram and Sylhet legs have witnessed comparatively more high-scoring BPL contests over the years.
However, this year, in the ninth edition of the franchise-based tournament, Mirpur witnessed more high scores than before, especially in the early stages of the tournament. In the first phase, 152.06 runs per innings on average were registered in eight matches at the SBNS. The Chattogram phase that followed had yielded 156.29 runs per innings on average across 12 games, while Sylhet remained the venue to witness the highest number, at 161.25 runs per innings on average in eight matches.
