BCCI is the world's richest
cricket board and India's strongest cricketing body. Let’s not take anything away from the men’s cricket because they are where they deserve but what about the
Women’s team they alsopractice as much as the men do, they sacrifice just as much. And, last but not least, they play just as well.
In this era where women are as equal as men, the nation should provide equal opportunity in every field. After the arrival of
IPL in 2008, the ranking of Indian cricket men is kept on improving and getting better. Every year BCCI collect more than Rs2000 crore revenue from IPL and the tax go directly to the government's account and later it is used for the development of their country. Every year IPL provides employment and entertainment to the people.
By starting women's IPL that such a league could be the way forward for women’s cricket. It will give the women’s format better opportunities to attract fresh funding from national bodies. It provides a new platform to Indian women where they can meet top overseas players and learn from them.
Many fresh talents emerge out of the IPL, Only from this kind of leagues can a young player like Rishabh Pant get to share a dressing room with the likes of Rahul Dravid, Gautam Gambhir, and Ricky Ponting. Apart from sharing the dugout with various superstars of the game, the huge exposure that the tournament brings can be considered an added advantage. New leaders like Rohit Sharma are emerging out of the IPL, who won 3 IPL and now the vice-captain of team India.
The difference in pay of a men and women cricketer is a major problem which can be overcome quickly if an IPL is introduced, and an IPL will generate more spectator interest as well.
The countries like Australia and England are on the top cricket rating and both country conduct (Kia) SuperLeague and Women’s Big Bash League every year around the world.
The captain of England women cricket Heather Knight believes “(These leagues) help players develop as well. It is great to be involved in. If the IPL comes up, it will be a brilliant addition (to the list),” and I believe the same.
Keep supporting the women cricket, who knows this kind of tournaments help women cricket winning the next 2020 ICC T20world cup.
