The BCCI is working to establish a women’s IPL in the near future. Women’s IPL could start as early as 2023. This information was provided by BCCI Secretary Jay Shah. While a three-team T20 tournament for women will be played alongside the men’s IPL, many believe that a separate IPL for women should be formed in the same way as for men.
The Women’s T20 Challenge will continue this year, according to BCCI secretary Jay Shah, but things will change soon. “I want to reassure you that the BCCI is making the necessary preparations to launch a women’s league similar to the IPL in the near future,” Shah said in an email to Reuters. Everyone wants to be in charge of it.”
The IPL will be held in India.
Because of the high number of corona cases in India, the entire IPL 2020 season and half of IPL 2021 were held in the United Arab Emirates. The IPL will begin in the last week of March this year, and Jay Shah is confident that the 10-team tournament will be held in India. He stated that the situation had changed in recent years. That is why the IPL was held in the United Arab Emirates. He also stated that spectator permits for IPL matches will be issued based on Kovid guidelines.
The BCCI opposes the formation of a four-nation league.
Rameez Raja, the President of the Pakistan Cricket Board, has also proposed a T20 tournament between India, Pakistan, England, and Australia. Every year, this tournament will be held. To this, Shah responded that the sole purpose of such an endeavor is to make money. It is more important for us to broaden the scope of the game. Every year, the ICC championships and the IPL are held, and our goal is to concentrate on Test cricket. He also stated that he is looking forward to the Olympics because it will aid in the growth of the sport.
