The Players' Draft of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League was held at a city hotel on Sunday.
No teams in first round have shown interest on ODI captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza who has been drafted into A+ category.
Along with him, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah Riyad were drafted into the A+ category, which sets the base price at Tk 5 million.
The tournament is scheduled to start on 11 December.
The T20 tournament would be arranged by BCB itself as there would be no franchises this year as part of Father of The Nation Bangabandhu Shiekh Mujibur Rahman’s birth centenary celebration.
