The BCCI has announced the domestic schedule for the 2022-23 season. Domestic cricket this season gets a lot better with more tournaments added for the Under-19 and Senior Women’s categories. There also is an Under-16 tournament scheduled that’ll commence later this year.
Indian cricketer, Smriti Mandhana in her presser quoted, “U16 is a significant tournament. I am happy that it has started. A lot of girls in the age group have started playing. This will help them. And this is also important for girls playing in the U19 World Cup.”
