Indian Premier League will welcome women’s franchises from 2023. BCCI secretary Jay Shah had already confirmed the start of women’s IPL.

After pressure from the leading Indian and overseas cricketers, the apex body of the Indian cricket finally agreed to their demands.

Meanwhile, former IPL chairman Lalit Modi has his say on the Women’s IPL.

“I didn’t watch most of the games of this year Women’s T20 Challenge. But I feel, the BCCI should make it mandatory for all the ten franchises to have women’s team,” Lalit Modi told NDTV.

“If the existing teams have IPL teams for women players, the bench strength of the Indian women’s cricket would go up. The owners will surely invest in their new teams. It would boost the women’s cricket. I am glad they have taken the step,” he added.

The IPL sold its media rights at an astonishing price of more than 43,000 crore.
