Kent players in Bangladesh Premier League 2015 auction

Thursday 15th October 2015

Men’s First Team

Several Kent cricketers have applied to play in the Bangladesh Premier League next month.

Darren Stevens, Joe Denly, James Tredwell, Alex Blake, Adam Riley, Sam Billings and Mitch Claydon are among 196 overseas players included in the player list.

Matt Coles has withdrawn his application after sustaining a foot injury, which required minor surgery.

The player auction takes place on Monday 26 October with each of the six franchises able to recruit up to 12 overseas players but only four can play in each matchday XI.

Chris Gayle, Kumar Sangakkara, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Tilekaratne Dilshan and Thisara Perera have already signed for each of the six franchises so competition for places will be strong.

BPL 2015 starts on Sunday 22 November with the final scheduled for Tuesday 15 December.
