The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) continues to grow in stature as the board got richer by $572 million after the bidding of the inaugural Women’s IPL.
The Women’s IPL is going to be revolutionary and is termed as the next big thing in Women’s sports. The league would definitely help Women’s cricket reach new heights. The WPL is richer than the Women’s Big Bash League where the teams in BBL have a roster of around $1 million.
With this mega deal, the BCCI has now become richer than before and continues to dominate on an international level. Jay Shah is the head of the Asian Cricket Council and is also on the committee for ICC’s Olympic bids for the 2028 Los Angeles Games.
BCCI secretary Jay Shah talks about WPL
“The bidding for teams of inaugural WPL broke the records of the inaugural men’s IPL in 2008,” BCCI boss Jay Shah wrote on social media.
“This marks the beginning of a revolution in women’s cricket and paves the way for a transformative journey ahead not only for our women cricketers but for the entire sports fraternity.”
