Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt believes that the introduction of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) will help the growth of women’s cricket in India.
Butt stated that the sale of the five teams for a staggering ₹4669.99 crore was a great landmark set by India. He opined that because of the WPL, many parents would allow their daughters to play cricket.
“The five teams in the WPL were sold for more money than the men’s teams in the first edition of the Indian Premier League. This is a very good development. It is a huge leap in terms of women’s cricket in the country,” he said on His YouTube channel.
“The face of women’s cricket will change after this. There are going to be a lot of opportunities for the players. Many people would allow their daughters to play cricket in India.”
