An insight into the Women's Premier League

The inaugural edition of the Women's Premier League begins with a clash between Mumbai and Gujarat on the 4th of March 2023. It will conclude on the 26th of the same month when the two best teams lock horns for the trophy.

History of the Women's Premier League

The Indian women's cricket team went unnoticed for many years despite their impressive performances. However, their fantastic run as runners-up in the 2017 ODI World Cup placed them firmly on the map. With the rapid growth of T20 cricket combined with the soaring popularity of the women's game, it was only a matter of time before women's T20 leagues sprouted across the globe.
Indian players such as Smriti Mandhana, Jemima Rodrigues, and Shafali Verma have played in the Women’s Big Bash League and the famous 'The Hundred' short-format cricket tournament. So it was only a matter of time until a full-fledged women's version of the Indian Premier League was launched.

Women's Premier League venues

There will be 22 matches in the first edition — 11 each at Brabourne Stadium and DY Patil Stadium based in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai, respectively.
