IPL started in 2008. Since then there was a constant demand for a women’s T20 league. The performance of Indian women’s team and players in international cricket was also good. It can be organized at 2 venues in Mumbai. Matches can be played from 4 to 26 March. A team can spend a maximum of Rs 12 crore to buy players. It is very less compared to men.
