“With the rise in popularity of women’s cricket in the country mainly due to prominent performances by the Indian Senior Cricket team on world stage by qualifying for semi-finals in 2018 T20 World Cup, finals in 2020 T20 World Cup, securing silver medal in recently held 2022 Commonwealth games in Birmingham, we intend to conduct the Women’s IPL on similar lines with the Indian Premier League,” the BCCI said on WIPL.

Women’s cricket took a big turn as they reached the final of the ODI World Cup in 2017 at the Lord’s ground but they got defeated by England. In the very next year, BCCO launched the Women’s T20 Challenge but it had just one match. In the next three years, it expanded to a three-team competition.

Recently, the popularity of Women’s cricket has increased and in no time they will be in the mainstream media. This led BCCI to grab this perfect opportunity to launch Women’s IPL.
