Why is Women’s IPL important to Indian Women’s National Cricket Team?

Now that women’s cricket has the peak of everyone’s attention, now would be the perfect time to launch Women’s IPL. At least former cricketer Sourav Ganguly thinks so. In a recent interview, he was quoted saying “We have it in our mind to get the women’s IPL properly done, how we do it we will decide in the next 3-4 months.”

Allrounder Jemimah Rodrigues of the Indian women’s cricket team confirmed that Sourav Ganguly mentioned the year 2023 when discussing the possibility of a women’s IPL. Being the biggest cricket tournament globally, IPL gets a lot of attention every year and grosses millions of dollars in bets in IPL betting at bet365 and also adds to the GDP of the Indian economy. 

How Women’s IPL can help the India women’s national cricket team

Having another form of IPL would make a lot of difference because one thing that the Indian women’s cricket team lacks in terms of performance is playing in pressure moments. This would expose the players to more preparation or practice. For example, if a player wants to perfect her cover drive shots, the more she drills the ball in that pressure moment, the better she is going to perform against high-ranking teams like the Australian women’s cricket team. 

The more they’re put under pressure, the more they’ll be able to deliver and the best opportunity for that is the Women’s IPL. 

There is a huge difference between domestic and international matches at the moment and the only way to bridge that gap is the women’s IPL.

“Having the opportunity to share the dressing room with the greatest women cricketers like Suzie Beth, Meg Lanning would let us learn from their work ethics” says allrounder Jemimah Rodrigues.

The difference between men’s IPL and women’s

It’s been 14 years since IPL first launched and the main difference between Men’s and Women’s IPL would be that Men’s cricket has a lot of matches than women’s. Great cricketers like Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah before their debut in the national team, played hundreds of matches in the domestic structure. The confidence adds to their performance boost and that’s what the Women’s cricket team lacks.

Fans are eager to watch women’s games because when they see a good match on TV, they don’t notice that women are playing. After all, the players are playing professionally at such a high level that the fans enjoy the matches just as much as they enjoy a men’s game, and that makes it a high time to launch Women’s IPL.
