The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is reportedly considering launching league matches in women’s cricket, such as the IPL. BCCI President Saurav Ganguly has made a big announcement ahead of the 15th season of the IPL.
The IPL, the league that has so far only been introduced in men’s cricket, will now start in the women’s division. It was reported that consultation meetings were held in this regard.
Speaking on the occasion, BCCI President Saurav Ganguly confirmed that discussions are underway to expand the IPL league in women’s cricket as well. He said a decision on this would be taken in the next few months.
Despite the victories of the Australian Women’s Big Bash League and the UK Women’s Super League, questions were raised by the BCCI about the absence of the Women’s T20 League in India, the largest market for cricket.
While many former women cricketers have been vocal about this, it is noteworthy that the current T20 captain of the Indian cricket team, Harmanpreet Kaur, has been commenting in support of the Women’s IPL match.
