Cricket seems to have found the way back to resumption. The English side dominated Windies in the interesting test match series, there is no lack of cricket in India too. The on-field actions seem dull but the preparation for the biggest league in the world is in full swing. Indian Premier League is a reality now with senior BCCI officials speaking to all media outlets and confirms the dates.
Board for Control of Cricket in India has revealed its plan to shift the biggest T20 league to a whole new country. The women cricketer of India, on the other hand, are uncertain when they will be back in the field. There have been similar concerns from cricketers worldwide. Recently Australian star Alyssa Healy expressed her disappointment after the Indian side withdrew itself from the scheduled series in England.
She retweeted words of an Aussie Journalist. Rick Eyre was wondering why BCCI felt the need to cancel the tour of women cricketers when it was carrying the mind-boggling task of transporting the whole IPL to the United Arab Emirates. Healy went a step further and gave voice to the concern shared among many other women cricketers throughout the globe.
Would be sad to see it not happen especially with the hope of a WC early next year…… https://t.co/VceZXolrOU

We have reported instances where players have candidly expressed their doubts on whether boards and administrators will give an equal share of attention to women cricket when the revival of cricket begins.
Indian cricket is one of the biggest aspects of global cricket and it shall not surprise anyone when International stars and foreign personalities have a say on Indian affairs. It is interesting to note that Indian women have not played competitive cricket after the T20 World Cup was held in Australia.
After the cup where the side emerged as the runners-up, the Indian side lacks a manager and importantly a selection panel as well. For a country that brags its cricketing aura and the humongous love it showers to the players, it has a side that plays International cricket and represents the country and lacks a selection panel and a manager. These words justify the tag of patriarchy in society and in the sporting world as well.
