Final is tomorrow/tonight, Dhaka/Karachi vs Barisal
i think Both XI's will stay the same.
Dhaka XI: Imran Nazir, Awais Zia, Nazimuddin, Azhar Mahmood, Mohammad Ashraful, Shahid Afridi, Mashrafe Mortaza*, Dhiman Ghosh, Anamul Haque, Elias Sunny, Saeed Ajmal
Barisial: Ahmed Shehzad, Brad Hodge*, Phil Mustard, Nazmul Islam Mominul Haque, Alauddin Babu, Suhrawadi Shuvo, Mithun Ali, Farhad Hossain, Yasir Arafat, Kabir Ali
Ahmad Shehzad scored a 100 in the Semi with some help from some real shocking fielding,
Dhaka is loaded, they got a scare by Shakib in the Semis, There the best fielding and bowling side by far and they bat deep so even if there top order stumbles somebody picks up the slack.
Aside from the Semi-Controversy, the tournament was well run. Elias Sunny was the find of the tournament and I'd say Mortaza being back to full form were the biggest plus for Bangladesh.
Shehzad's knock in the semi looks ridiculous.

Catching has been really shocking of what little I have seen of BPL
Just checked the scorecard, Shakib almost single handedly knocked them out in the semis, WAFG. Where can I watch this thing?
And yeah, good for Bangas. Seems Anamul Haque scored some runs today. And wow, an awful lot of Pakistani players in there too.
So it looks like people in charge didn't learn a lesson or two from the first edition and now the second edition also has been plagued by incompetency and controversy. This time around franchisees are supposed to pay 25% of players' fees before the tournament starts and guess what, some of the players still haven't received that. Also many foreign players withdrew from the tournament recently.
Auction took place in December. Unconfirmed Squads (foreign players in bold):The BPL governing council for the first edition faced much criticism for the way they handled certain issues, but according to franchisees it has gone only from bad to worse after a new group replaced the officials for the second edition.
There are many issues still needed to be sorted out, including the participation of Pakistani players and the accommodation of players, which put the franchisees in an uncertain situation.
Barisal Burners: Alok Kapali, Shafiul Islam, Elias Sunny, Shuvagata Hom, Shabbir Rahman, Ifthikar Ahmed, Jubair Ahmed, Alauddin Babu, Al Amin, Nazmul Apu, Saeed Ajmal, Sunil Narine, Brad Hodge, Azhar Mahmood, Umar Gul, Kamran Akmal, Phil Mustard, Kabir Ali, Hammad Azam

You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.
Stirling is one of the better strikers of the ball in english county cricket so it'll be good to see how he goes if he plays
Looking at the squads here, Dhaka gladiators and Barisal burners look a notch above the rest..

quite a stupid step by the pcb. I am not sure what the hell they are thinking
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Looks like it was a true rumor that PCB wont give NOCs if we don't agree to tour
"A little while ago, we received a phone call from their CEO Subhan Ahmed saying that if we don't send the Bangladesh team on tour to Pakistan, they won't give NOCs to their players to participate in the BPL," the BCB's media committee chairman said.

nobody in their right mind would want to visit Pakistan at this point in time. The BCB is right in taking this step for their team.
PCB got tunneled regarding the matter now and it seems they are trying to force this issue. BCB was in tremendous pressure starting from civil citizen and government to back out from the tour and rightly so. No one has the right to put others life at risk. Also our former board president should take the blame for this chaos in the first place as he agreed to tour because of his personal gain that is PCB to give him nomination for ICC vp post.
