The Women’s Indian Premier League (Women’s IPL) was officially sanctioned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday. The tournament was approved at the BCCI’s 91st Annual General Meeting in Mumbai. The 91st Annual General Meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) made several key decisions, including the appointment of former India National Cricket Team bowling all-rounder Roger Binny as the 36th BCCI president following the departure of Sourav Ganguly.

According to previous reports, the women’s IPL will have five teams and will begin in March 2023. The five teams can be chosen by zone — North (Dharamsala/Jammu), South (Kochi/Vizag), Central (Indore/Nagpur/Raipur), East (Ranchi/Cuttack), North East (Guwahati), and West (Pune/Rajkot), as in the men’s IPL — or by individual cities. That race is being led by Ahmedabad, Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, and Kolkata.

 

According to reports, teams will compete in a league format, with the top team automatically qualifying for the final, while the second and third-placed teams will compete in an eliminator for a spot in the summit clash.

“It has been tentatively decided to have five teams for WIPL in order to have a well-balanced mix of domestic and international players and to have competitive teams.” According to news agency PTI, the BCCI wrote to all state associations last week, “each team can have a maximum of eighteen players, with no team having more than six overseas players.”

Returning to the BCCI AGM, Roger Binny was elected as the new BCCI president, succeeding Sourav Ganguly. Jay Shah was reappointed as board secretary for a second term.

Rajeev Shukla was named vice president, Devajit Saikia was named joint secretary, and Ashish Shelar was named treasurer.

Arun Dhumal is the new chairman of the IPL governing council, Avishek Dalmiya is an IPL governing council member, and MKJ Majumdar is an apex council member.
