Today is a very important day in the history of Indian cricket because on March 4, 2023, a new chapter of women’s cricket is going to start. Women’s Premier League is going to start in Mumbai in no time. The launch of the Women’s Premier League in India will give a boost to cricket. The demand to start the Women’s Premier League was being made for a long time, but now it is officially going to start from March 4. The first match of this tournament will be played after the opening ceremony on March 4.
This is the first time in this league that three industrialists have put money together in the same sports league. Adani Sports Line has bought the Gujarat Giants team in this tournament. Mukesh Ambani has bought the women’s Mumbai team i.e. Mumbai Indians after the men’s team. And Ratan Tata is also associated with this tournament. Although he has not bought any team, he is the title sponsor of this tournament.
Every match of the Women’s Premier League will be held in Mumbai only. In this league, Indian players have been included in the team at good prices. There are a total of 10 players for this tournament who have been included in the team for an amount of one crore or more. The most expensive player of this league is Indian team’s star batsman Smriti Mandhana, who has been made a part of the team by Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 3.4 crore.
The specialty of this league is that for the first time any team can field five foreign players in the team formation. One of these players must be from the Associate Nation. In the IPL, teams can field as many as four foreign players.
In the Women’s Premier League, the team topping the points table after the stage matches will directly qualify for the finals. Apart from this, there will be an eliminator match between the second and third placed teams, after which the losing team will be eliminated and the winning team will become the second finalist. The final match of this tournament will be held on March 26, after which the first winner of the Women’s Premier League will be in front of the world.
