While the nations like England, New Zealand, Australia, West Indies have resumed the Women’s International Cricket, India was more focused on IPL. With the diminishing hopes of any international matches being scheduled, this tournament comes as a ray of hope for women cricket fans around the country.

Team India’s leading players have turned to the Bengaluru based club tournament. The tournament will be hosting big names such as Jemimah Rodrigues, Veda Krishnamurthy, and Deepti Sharma, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Punam Raut, Radha Yadav, Vanitha V R, Nuzhat Parveen, Anuja Patil, and Thirush Kamini.

“The event has been approved by the Karnataka State Cricket Association and wherever the permission from other state associations was required for the outstation players, we have taken that,” former India captain Shantha Rangaswamy, current BCCI Apex Council member and the President of Falcon Cricket Club’s told PTI.

The Bengaluru based Falcon Cricket Club will be hosting the event. The tournament is to commemorate the club’s golden jubilee. The T20 tournament will be played between four teams, in a round-robin manner, where each team will face each team twice. The tournament will commence on the 4th of January and conclude on the 12th of January. This tournament will offer a good opportunity for some of the younger uncapped players to rub shoulders with the best Indian players and will also provide the international players much-needed game time.

This will be the third tournament being conducted under the leadership of Shantha Rangaswamy, who, fed up with the wait and watch approach, decided to take matter in her own hands during this pandemic. With the help of former players and other stakeholders of women’s cricket in Karnataka, Shantha Rangaswamy has conducted two tournaments successfully. Sheela Sridhar Rangaswamy Memorial Inter-Academy Women’s Cricket Tournament spanned from 9th September to 18th September and Inter Academy T20 Women’s Cricket Tournament spanned from 23rd November to 2nd December.
