The 2021 Dhaka Premier League (DPL) is set to resume on 31st May. Earlier, the tournament had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic after only one round of matches. The tournament was being played in the 50-overs format. But the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to conduct the tournament in the T20 format. This step has been taken while keeping an eye on the T20 World Cup later this year in October-November.

This time around, the matches will be played in five rounds on May 31, June 1, 3, 4 and 6. The 12 clubs that are participating in Dhaka Premier League include Abahani Limited, Brothers Union, Gazi Group Cricketers, Khelaghar Samaj Kallyan Samity, Legends of Rupganj, Mohammedan Sporting Club, Old DOHS Sports Club, Partex Sporting Club, Prime Bank Cricket Club, Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club, Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club and Shinepukur Cricket Club.

Plenty of international Bangladesh stars will be seen in action in the tournament. Tamim Iqbal will feature for Prime Bank Cricket Club. Mushfiqur Rahim will represent Abahani Limited while Mahmudullah Riyad is with Gazi Group Cricketers. While the tournament will also offer an opportunity for young stars like Towhid Hridoy and Mahmudul Hasan Joy to stake their claim in the Bangladesh national side for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
