Rajshahi Kings picked Mustafizur Rahman with the first overall pick at the BPL players' draft in Dhaka. The franchise also had the good fortune of getting the first pick among the overseas players, and they took Pakistani legspinner Usama Mir with it.

Mustafizur will receive $60,000 as the only player in Grade A+ in the local list. Abu Hider, another left-arm pace bowler, was taken by defending champions Dhaka Dynamites as the second overall pick in the draft before Khulna Titans and Rangpur Riders went for left-hand batsmen, taking Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Shahriar Nafees respectively.

Comilla Victorians took pace bowler Al-Amin Hossain, Chittagong Vikings went for left-arm spinner Sunzamul Islam, and Sylhet Sixers took local pacer Abul Hasan the first time around.

Mir, the first overseas pick, will be paid $30,000 as he is in Grade D in the draft. Joe Denly (England and Dhaka), Najibullah Zadran (Afghanistan and Chittagong), Solomon Mire (Zimbabwe and Comilla), Shehan Jayasuriya (Sri Lanka and Khulna), Sam Hain (Warwickshire and Rangpur) and Chaturanga de Silva (Sri Lanka and Sylhet) were the first picks among the overseas players.

Raza Ali Dar, Akeal Hosein, Luis Reece and Ghulam Mudassar, little-known players in the international T20 market, made it as high as the second round of the draft among the overseas picks.
