Rangpur Riders Signs Babar Azam for BPL 2024: Rangpur Riders have won only one BPL Winners title back in 2017 by beating Dhaka Dynamites by 57 runs where Chris Gayle won the player of the tournament playing for Rangpur Riders.

A report also states that Babar Azam had an offer from the UAE’s ILT20 but opted to play for the BPL instead. Right after the decision to sign Babar Azam, the Riders opted for a unique way to reveal the signing of Babar Azam on their social media platforms.

Rangpur Riders Facebook post reads, “We are here with another surprise after signing the world’s No. 1 all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan in the fight for victory! Dear Rangpur Riders fans, guess who is going to be the new rider by matching the information given in the picture, and share your opinion in the comments.”

The post also had an image, namely ‘Guess the rider’ attached to it, including hints such as ‘he made his ODI debut in 2015’, ‘He’s the first player to score more than 5000 runs in his first 100 ODI innings, and ‘He’s the captain of currently ranked world’s no. 1 ODI team’. All these hints led to one that is ‘Babar Azam,’ and fans were quite quick to guess it right.

In addition to Babar Azam, Rangpur Riders have secured the services of Pakistan pacer Ihsanullah and Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan and strengthened their line-up. Shakib Al Hasan remains the tournament’s leading wicket-taker with 122 wickets under his name.

They have also retained key players such as Nurul Hasan Sohan, Mahedi Hasan, and Hasan Mahmud.

Furthermore, the team has already signed foreign cricketers Wanindu Hasaranga(Sri Lanka) and Nicholas Pooran(West Indies), further enhancing their squad for the upcoming season of BPL.
