Fortune Barishal made a significant acquisition in the BPL draft in Dhaka, securing Mushfiqur Rahim as the most high-profile pick. The team, led by Tamim Iqbal, also added Yannic Cariah, Soumya Sarkar, and Mohammad Saifuddin during the draft, aiming to improve on their performance from the previous season when they were eliminated in the playoffs.

Defending champions Comilla Victorians made noteworthy signings, including West Indian players Rahkeem Cornwall and Matthew Forde, in addition to bringing back their championship-winning captain, Imrul Kayes. They already had a strong overseas lineup with Rashid Khan, Sunil Narine, and Iftikhar Ahmed.

Sylhet Strikers, the runners-up from the previous season, retained Mashrafe Mortaza and signed Najmul Hossain Shanto as a local player. They also made draft picks in Mohammad Mithun and Rezaur Rahman Raja.

Khulna Tigers opted for the Sri Lankan pair of Dasun Shanaka and Kasun Rajitha among their overseas selections, having retained Nasum Ahmed and Nahidul Islam.

Rangpur Riders, known for their big spending, chose Shakib Al Hasan as their star player and added Rony Talukdar and Shamim Hossain as local talents in the draft. Their overseas picks included Michael Rippon, who recently shifted from the Netherlands to New Zealand, and USA all-rounder Yasir Mohammad.

The BPL 2024 season is scheduled to start in mid-January, overlapping with other T20 leagues like the BBL, ILT20, and SA20.
