Female Cricket, the most prominent digital media platform promoting women’s cricket was launched on 6th February 2016, with a vision to build a platform that would talk, spread, share, and celebrate the journey of our female cricketers around the world. The platform was founded by Vishal Yadav, a die-hard cricket fan who grew up watching the greats like Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni and wanted to pursue a career in the cricket industry. He came up with a revolutionary idea of establishing this platform to channel his love, passion, and emotions for the game of women’s game.
Female Cricket has collaborated with the Bharat Army, team India’s official global supporters group. They were established in the year 1999, with the values of showing passion for team India, home and away, respecting all players teams, and fans on and off the field, and being the 12th man/woman on the field. They have become famous in its association with Team India for its passionate and committed support traveling around the world supporting Team India for over 20 years.

Young women and girls from various academies will be getting an opportunity to witness an unforgettable experience.
Over 500 entries were received across social media platforms, out of which 130 girls were selected from Mumbai. The selected candidates will be having their first-ever experience of watching a World Cup game live from the stadium watching the superstars in action during the Bangladesh vs South Africa match at the Wankhede Stadium on 24th October 2023.
