To develop the skill of the Bangladeshi batsmen against pace bowlers, BCB will only allow pace bowlers with foreign origin to be registered as a test case for next years NCL.
Match fee for the players is another significant addition for the upcoming edition of the NCL, and BCB have decided to double the daily remuneration in a bid to provide financial security to the first class cricketers.
