BCB official facebook page has been found to promote BBPL team Dhaka Platoon

The Bangladesh Cricket Board official facebook page has raised eyebrows over cross promotion of a particular team in the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20. 

Record has been nil of the official BCB pages coming into direct promotion of any of the BPL teams till date.

BCB official facebook page though has now been found to promote BBPL team Dhaka Platoon.

There is however, an argument to this as, according to BCB officials, the official cricket board pages are entitled to promote different teams.

“There is no obligation that the BCB pages cannot promote the teams. The teams are part of the board itself. But the teams have to come and ask for the cross promotions,” said a BCB official to Dhaka Tribune Thursday. 

With that said, occasions have been plenty when requests of promotion by BPL teams through BCB pages have been turned down. 

Many are considering Dhaka Platoon getting the extra mileage on BCB official social media platform due to the common stakeholders. 

Gazi Group is the "sponsor" of Dhaka Platoon.

The BCB pages are managed by Content Matters Ltd, a company involved in digital content production.  

Gazi Group deputy managing director Gazi Golam Murtaza and executive director M Salahuddin Chowdhury hold stake in Content Matters Limited as director and managing director respectively, as per the website of Content Matters.
