The 2018-19 BPL season, also known as BPL 6 or UCB BPL 2019 Powered by TVS (for sponsorship reasons), is the sixth season of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), the top level professional Twenty20 cricket franchise league in Bangladesh. The competition was organised by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), featuring seven teams from seven cities. Teams are restricted to having four overseas players per side, instead of five in the previous edition of the tournament.[1] Rangpur Riders are the defending champions.[2]

Originally, the season was scheduled to start on 1 October 2018 and end on 16 November 2018.[3] However, in May 2018, it was reported that the tournament might be moved to January 2019, because of security concerns around the Bangladeshi general election, which took place in December 2018.[4] In July 2018, it was confirmed that the tournament would start in January 2019.[5][6]

For this edition of the tournament, the Decision Review System (DRS) are used for the first time.[7]

Draft and squads[edit]

By 30 September 2018 the team franchises announced the names of their retained players for the tournament and their icon players. A players' draft was initially scheduled to take place on 25 October 2018.[7] However, the date was moved to 28 October due to a schedule clash with the ODI series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.[8]

The rest of the players were bought from the Players' Draft, which was held on 28 October 2018.[9] Liton Das and Mustafizur Rahman were new additions to the list while Soumya Sarkar and Sabbir Rahman were excluded from the list.[10][11][12] Initially, Steve Smith was barred from playing in the tournament by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).[13] However, the BCB overturned its decision, allowing Smith to take part in the competition.[14]
