4 Dec 2021
The talk about having a women’s Indian Premier League has been doing the rounds for quite some time now with experts arguing that India has more than enough talent to sustain a league similar to the men's edition of the competition. Discussions have picked further wind, especially after the Indian players featuring and performing in the tournaments like Women’s Big Bash League and The Hundred.
Now Board of Control for Cricket in India President Sourav Ganguly has cleared the air and said that the board will be preparing a roadmap to organise the event.
“Yes, we have it in our mind to get the women’s IPL properly done. We will decide it in the next 3-4 months and take the forward,” Ganguly said while talking to Boria Majumdar.
Harmanpreet Kaur had a brilliant run during the WBBL and was in the top 10 of both runs scored and wicket taken rankings. She was the only Indian to feature in the team of the season as well. The former India captain lauded the right-hander’s efforts.
“I’m extremely happy to see Harmanpreet play so well in the WBBL. She had a little bit of tough time in England and Australia,” he added.
Ganguly also added that players like Harmanpreet, Smriti, Shafali Verma, Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami are important part of the unit.
“Harmanpreet, Smriti, Shafali Verma, Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami are all strength to this team,” the former left-handed batsman said.
Talking about the Indian team, the side is slated to tour New Zealand for one-off T20I and five-match ODI series.
