Dhaka:  Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) has named the former West cricket captain Brian Lara as the brand ambassador of its franchises, Chittagong Kings.

The West Indies batting legend, who has signed a three-year contract with the Kings, will be here in November to complete the formalities.

"I am excited and honoured to announce that Brian Lara has agreed to join us as the brand ambassador of the Chittagong Kings," Sameer Quader Chowdhury, the franchise's owner, told ESPNcricinfo.
