Gazi Group posted nine wins in 11 outings and concluded their campaign on 18 points, two ahead of Prime Doleshwar and Abahani Limited. Prime Doleshwar pipped Abahani due to a better net run rate. With the bat, Liton Das topped the chart with 752 runs, including two centuries and five half-centuries at an average of 53.71 while with the ball, Abu Haider finished with the most wickets, 35 scalps in 16 matches.

For the veteran Mashrafe bin Mortaza, this was his fourth BPL title in five attempts. The captain fantastic led Dhaka Gladiators to the title in 2012 and 2013 before repeating the heroics for Comilla Victorians in 2014. Rangpur winning the money-spinning tournament meant the BPL got its third winner after Dhaka and Comilla. The Riders defeated Dhaka Dynamites in the final of the 45-day long competition. Windies opener Gayle decimated the opposition, hoicking 146 as Rangpur gave the capital city outfit a huge target of 206. The Dynamites though, folded for 149. Much like the previous editions, the BPL had its share of controversies in 2017 and this time around, it involved Comilla and the BPL governing council.
