‘’Yes, there is no prize money in this edition of BBPL as we did not have any franchises. We did not take any franchise fees so whom will give the prize money because there are only sponsors in the ongoing BBPL,’’ Ismail Haider Mallick, BPL’s member secretary told reporters regarding the prize money issue.
