Barisal Burners (Bengali: বরিশাল বার্নার্স; often abbreviated as BB) is a franchise cricket team that plays in the Bangladesh Premier League representing the division of Barisal, Bangladesh. The team is currently led by Brad Hodge and coached by Sarwar Imran. The team is owned by Alif Group. Barisal Burners became the runner-up of the first edition.

Franchise history[edit]

In 2012, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) created the cricket tournament Bangladesh Premier League based on the Twenty20 form of the game.[1] Six teams participated in the inaugural tournament, beginning 9 February 2012. The teams representing six different Divisions of Bangladesh, including Barisal, were put up on auction in Dhaka on 10 January 2012 at the Raddison Hotel. The Barisal Burners were bought by ALIF SSL Sports Holdings Ltd (A Concern of Alif Group) for a price of USD 1.01 million.[2]

2012 season[edit]

The Barisal Burners had been the cheapest buy of players and franchise at the beginning of the tournament.[clarification needed] Their biggest buy was West Indies opener Chris Gayle bought for a grand total of $551,000, the second biggest buy of the inaugural BPL, however he was only available for five games. In his short stay he was able to score two centuries and had the highest average of 97.00. They continued with the destructive Ahmed Shehzad and experienced Brad Hodge opening the batting to provide a stable batting line up which qualified them for the semi finals. A close chase against Chittagong Kings qualified them narrowly to progress to the knock out stages to finish as the runner-up.[citation needed]

Players[edit]

First BPL auction[edit]

The players in the team (except for Shahriar Nafees, who was the Icon Player), were selected in an auction conducted by the BCB on 20 February 2012. The hard hitting Jamaican opener Chris Gayle at $551,000 became the costliest player to be selected to play for the Barisal Burners. This meant that Shahriar Nafees, being the Icon Player would be paid $1,035,000 (15% more than the highest bid player in the team). Other players selected included Bangladeshi youngster Mominul Haque and his team-mates Al Amin and bowler Suhrawadi Shuvo, Pakistani opener Ahmed Shehzad, Australian Brad Hodge, English county player Phil Mustard (wicketkeeper) and Yasir Arafat. The team also included Australian fast bowler Shane Harwood who proved a great buy however missed the rest of the tournament with an injury.[citation needed]

Captaincy[edit]

Alif Group, the owner of Barisal Burners, initially gave the captaincy to experienced Bangladeshi opener Shahriar Nafees; however, the tournament progressed with Nafees failing to score regularly and as a result Brad Hodge took over when Nafees was dropped.[citation needed]
