Baroda was one of the first few cities in the country to have a separate women’s cricket association, in the 1970s. However, they are yet to have their own local domestic tournament for aspiring women cricketers.

“Women’s cricket has become immensely popular now and the number of girls joining the sport is on the rise. Vadodara has a lot of talent and it’s time that it should be tapped. We had been mulling to launch a women’s cricket tournament for quite some time. Organizing this tournament regularly will give good practice to the players who will be able to showcase their talent. The more they play, the more their confidence and skills will improve.” Baroda Cricket Association’s Cricket Advisory Committee chairman Kiran More speaks about launching a domestic T20 tournament to provide a platform for the local players to showcase their talent.

The young 23-year-old wicket-keeper batter Yastika Bhatia and the 24-year-old left-arm spinner Radha Yadav are the two prominent players to have represented the Indian women’s team at the international level. The left-arm spinner was also recently a part of the white-ball leg of the home series against South Africa. She had an impressive outing in the three-match T20I series as she picked up six wickets in three innings at an impressive average of 12.83. She was the 2nd highest wicket-taker of the recently concluded T20I series against South Africa.

The 30-year-old off-spin bowling all-rounder Tarannum Pathan who plays for Baroda at the domestic level, was also a part of the 2nd edition of the Women’s Premier League. She was picked up by Gujarat Giants in the year 2024.
