The first edition of the Women’s T20 League is going to happen in 2023. As per reports, the tournament might take place in March. However, before that, the auction will take place and as per reports, it might take palace in the second week of February 2023. On 25 January, the Secretary of the Indian Cricket Board, Jay Shah confirmed that the Board have managed Rs 4,669.99 crore in a total bid for the franchises.

He tweeted: “Today is a historic day in cricket as the bidding for teams of the inaugural Women’s T20 League broke the records of the inaugural Men’s Indian T20 League in 2008! Congratulations to the winners as we garnered Rs 4,669.99 cr in total bid. 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.”  

“To cut that gap, the tournament will play a major role”  – Harmanpreet Kaur on Women’s T20 League

Even, the media rights of the league have been sold to Viacom18 for Rs. 951 crores, Rs. 7.09 crore per match value for five years. However, before all of this, Harmanpreet Kaur said that this tournament will bridge the gap between international and domestic cricket. Speaking on Star Sports show ‘Follow the Blues’, Harmanpreet said, “The Indian T20 League will be a great platform for players that are really good, but you know for them, international cricket is still something that they cannot change their approach and mindset overnight. But in the Indian T20 League, when they get a chance to play against overseas players, it will give them a platform, they can play well, and they can understand what international cricket is.”

“So, when they are playing for the Indian team, they will not face any extra pressure, because right now, the players that are selected from the domestic teams, sometimes I can see that they are blank, they are not able to understand how to change their game plan. To cut that gap, the tournament will play a major role,” Harmanpreet Kaur concluded. But, now reports have come out that the Board are finding difficulties to get a hotel for the auction due to the ongoing marriage season.
