Australia Women’s wicketkeeper batter Alyssa Healy has welcomed the BCCI’s and PCB’s decision to start WIPL and WPSL.
Healy has been a long-time advocate for the issue as she thinks there is a lot of untapped potential in India.
She also feels that India can become an unbeatable team in the next 10 years or so.
She said that this is the correct time to launch more T20 leagues for women and women’s cricket is heading in the right direction.
Healy and other Australian cricketers have not been able to participate in the now four-team league of the Women’s T20 challenge hosted by the BCCI along with the men’s IPL.
It was because of a stalemate between the two boards that this had to happen to the Australian players.
BCCI did not host the 2021 Women’s T20 Challenge because of unknown reasons.
BCCI is all set to start Women’s IPL next year while PCB is in the planning process for WPSL.
Even Hayley Matthews welcomed her board’s decision to organize a WCPL as it will give a big boost to women’s cricket in West Indies and allow more young women cricketers to play for the national side.
