BCCI Soon To Introduce Women's IPL in India

BCCI soon to introduce Women's IPL in India. A revolutionary move by the board to promote women's cricket around the world:


After the successful performance in the recently finished ICC Women's World Cup 2017, Mithali Raj led Indian women cricket team impressed everyone including their board BCCI. So, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning to introduce a domestic cricket league for women cricket in India. It is expected to be like the IPL theme. Former captain of Indian women' cricket team and current member of BCCI, Diana Edulji has already confirmed the possibility. She said "We are in talks of having a women's IPL. It is still on drawing board. But, now we need to look seriously. To start with, we need to have a 5 team affair. It will encourage more cricketers to come out and play". According to her they are very sure that Mithali & Co. will inspire this generation just like the men cricketers are doing now.


Before this, on may 2017 ; former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag had already expressed the idea of women's IPL via twitter. In a tweet of his fan, Sehwag replied "I think it's high time we have Women's IPL, just like they have Big Bash for women in Australia. Hope @BCCI gives this gift quickly."


In case you didn't know the Women's Big Bash League in Australia and Women's Cricket Super League in England are the only big domestic T20 tournaments for women right now. Indian women cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana are already a part of teams in Big Bash League. They play for Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat respectively in that league.


Well, the main reason and vision of the league is to promote women cricket around the world. Also it will be the best way to encourage young girls and fresh talents. I think It is a revolutionary move by the board which has a lot of potential. So, it's the high time that the BCCI should reward the rise of women's cricket by starting the Women's IPL T20.
