BCCI has been successful with men’s tournaments across the country and wants the same kind of involvement in the Women’s circuit.

India women have played a few red ball tournaments on the England Women’s tour of India in 2023 and the Australia women’s tour of India in 2023 where Indian women emerged as victorious.

Coming to the WPL 2024, the tournament has witnessed several thriller matches with Delhi Capitals at the top of the points table.

They won two out of three matches they played in the tournament. Other teams like RCB and MI have also won two matches but stand below DC due to the net run rate.

Despite standing second in the points table, RCB player Smrti Mandhana currently tops the list of most runs followed by her teammate Meghana in the tournament.

UP Warriorz and Gujarat Giants will be playing the next match on the WPL 2024 schedule on March 01 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
