Indian women’s ODI team captain Mithali Raj has said that BCCI should not wait forever to organize women’s IPL. She believes that women’s IPL should start in 2021. He also said that the level of female IPL will be lower than that of male IPL.
Crickinfo quoted Mithali as saying, “I personally feel that they should start the women’s IPL 2021, even if it is on a smaller scale and with some changed rules such as 5 in the first edition or There is an exemption for playing 6 foreign players, which is limited to 4 in the men’s IPL.”
The BCCI has organized the exhibition matches of the women’s IPL for the last two years but said that it will take time for the full women’s IPL. A total of 7 matches will be played in this year’s Women’s T20 Challenge. However, at this time the possibility of IPL due to coronavirus is very less.
Mithali admitted that India does not have a large number of players at the moment, but added that the existing franchisees can buy the team. Mithali said, “I agree that we do not have much pool of domestic players, but the remedy could be that the existing franchisees make the team. Even if only 5 or 6 franchises start, it would be good because in any case, BCCI will have four teams in the Challenger tournament. ”
