The BPLT20 2016 –17 Bangladesh Premier League will be the fourth season of the Bangladesh Premier League, the top Bangladesh franchise professional league for Twenty20 cricket clubs. The league is organised by the Bangladesh Cricket Board and will feature seven teams. The season is scheduled to begin on 4 November 2016 and to end on 9 December 2016. Two new teams, Khulna Titans and Rajshahi Kings will play in the competition with new ownership after the original franchises had missed the 2015 competition, while the Sylhet Super Stars franchise was excluded from the competition. The BCB originally claimed that Sylhet had breached franchisee agreements or not paid bank guarantees, but on 21 September clarified that the franchise had been excluded for “disciplinary reasons”.
