According to a story that was published in The Economic Times (ET), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has solicited bids from potential owners of clubs in the Women’s Indian Premier League (WIPL). After the payment of a non-refundable charge of Rs 5 lakh, the tender for bids will be made accessible to prospective bidders. Up to the 21st of January in 2023, customers will be able to buy it. The head of the Indian Premier League, Arun Dhumal, said that there is significant interest among corporate companies to acquire a team in the Women’s Indian Premier League.

We are optimistic that we will be able to acquire a strong group of franchise owners given the level of interest in the WILL. According to what he told ET, there is significant interest in the ownership of a WILL club coming from both current IPL teams and new players.

PTI announced in October that the first women’s edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) would take place in March, before the men’s IPL.

The competition will feature five teams, all of whom will face each other twice over the course of the event. The teams who finish in first, second, and third place will compete against one another in the elimination round to determine who will advance to the championship match. There may be no more than five international cricketers playing for any one side in the playing eleven.


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said in a note that in order to have a decent mix of local and foreign players and to have teams that are competitive, it has been provisionally agreed to have five teams for the Indian Premier League. The total number of players on each team is limited to no more than eighteen, and no squad may have more than six players from outside the country.

According to a notice from the BCCI, each side may have no more than five foreign players in their playing XI, with four of those players coming from Full Members of the ICC and one of those players coming from Associate Members of the ICC. The governing body also believes that since there are only a certain number of teams participating, the home-and-away format will not be practical. It is anticipated that the tournament will take place not long after the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup, which will take place in South Africa from February 9-26.

Five or six clubs competing won’t be able to play a match every day like they do in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 

 Therefore the home-away model will be difficult to implement in the Women’s Indian Premier League (WIPL). It is proposed that the tournament may be conducted in a caravan-style, where after concluding 10 matches at one location, the next ten matches are to be played at the next venue. This was mentioned. Therefore, ten matches will be played across two venues in the 2023 WIPL season, ten matches will be played across the next two venues in the 2024 WIPL season, ten matches will be played in the remaining venue for the 2025 WIPL season, and the remaining ten matches will be played in one of the venues from the 2023 WIPL season, according to the note.
