BCCI Latest Updates: Cricket board to allow five overseas player to take part in WIPL

Women's IPL

The BCCI has previously advocated for improving women’s cricket in the nation, but little real action was taken to advance the sport.

Things appear to be going well; the BCCI recently stated that the full-fledged WIPL, for which Viacom 18 obtained the digital media rights for five years, is scheduled to begin this year.

The odd thing is that this will be the first season of the WIPL, despite the fact that the worth of each game is 7.09 crore, a far cry from the PSL.

According to rumours from several media outlets, the invitation for other franchises to purchase clubs would be made public on January 25, 2023.

Five foreign athletes will participate in the competition, and the fifth player may be a citizen of an associate country, according to other media reports.

The anticipated dates for WIPL 2023 are from March 4 to March 26, respectively.

The top 3 teams in the prestigious competition will receive 6 crore, 3 crore, and 1 crore, respectively.

Young Indian players wanted to compete in a major competition where they could share locker rooms with seasoned athletes, hence the women’s IPL was desperately needed.

Certain players’ financial condition will improve thanks to the Women’s IPL, and their capacity for handling pressure situations will considerably increase.

Uncapped player base prices in the forthcoming auction will start at Rs. 10 Lakhs, while capped player base prices will begin at Rs. 30 Lakhs.

Women’s IPL is a crucial step toward advancing women’s cricket in the nation, which was long overdue.

Having a full-fledged women’s IPL will prepare young women players to handle pressure situations and perform their skills to the best of their abilities as we have recently seen our national team excelling in ICC competitions.
