women IPL: First season of women’s IPL expected early next year: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said that the first season of the much-awaited women’s IPL is expected to begin early next year. He informed the state units in a letter.

“The BCCI is currently working on the much awaited Women’s IPL. We look forward to starting the first season early next year,” Ganguly wrote in a letter dated September 20.

PTI reported last month that the tournament is likely to take place in March after the Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa.

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly confirmed that the men’s IPL will return to the home and away format from the 2023 season. He informed the state units about this. Due to COVID, IPL has been held at certain venues only.

Due to COVID, IPL has been held at certain venues only.

In 2021 also, the tournament was held at four venues – Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai.

Mitigating the risk related to the pandemic has ensured that the league can now return to the old format where each team plays one home and one match.

“The next season of the men’s IPL will also go back to the home and away format, with all ten teams playing their home matches at their designated venues,” read Ganguly’s note to state units.

The note gave him a “snapshot” of the ongoing home season.

BCCI is organizing a full domestic season for the first time since 2020 and all multi-day tournaments will also return to the traditional home and away format.
