Former chairman of the IPL, Lalit Modi, reckoned that each franchise should have a women’s team which will only help the game grow and bring more talents to the top of the international scene.

As of now, the BCCI hosts a 3-team women’s T20 challenge during the break between the IPL season and the playoffs. However, they can go up a notch and make a full league, as plenty of women cricketers have been suggesting.

I didn’t see much of IPL women’s games this year (Women’s T20 Challenge), but I think one of the biggest things they should do is make it mandatory for an IPL franchise to have a women’s team.

If an IPL franchise owner is able to have a women’s team, you’ll see the bench strength in Indian women’s cricket go up. You’ll see investment in women’s cricket by owners who are already making good money now,” Lalit told NDTV.
