The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly has informed the state units that the Board plans to start Women’s IPL early next year.
In an email to state units, which Sportstar has seen, Ganguly has written, “The BCCI is currently working in the much-awaited women’s IPL. We are expecting to start the first season early next year,” Ganguly wrote.
He also stated that the men’s IPL will go back to the home and away format with 10 teams playing at their designated venues. In June, in an interview to this publication, Ganguly had confirmed the development.
The Board has already earmarked the February-March window for next year’s WIPL and a formal go-ahead is expected after the Annual General Meeting next month.
