Bangladesh cricket superstar Sabbir Rahman has become the icon player of the Surma Sixers Sylhet for the fifth Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) T20.
On his verified Facebook page, Sabbir confirmed the matter.
As a result, after playing a successful tournament for Rajshahi Kings last year, this time he will be seen to represent his new team Sylhet.
In the last BPL, there was no team from Sylhet but they are back now as their name has been changed to Surma Sixers.
BPL Governing Council has been decided to start BPL-5 from 2 November.
BPL 5 will see the eight franchises compete for the coveted title this year with Sylhet’s return.
The fourth edition of BPL, won by Dhaka Dynamites saw seven teams participate in the tournament.
