According to the most recent tentative schedule, the Women’s Premier League (WPL) will kick off on March 4 with a match between Mumbai and Ahmedabad in Mumbai. The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) intends to host the tournament’s historic opening match in the DY Patil Stadium, with the CCI serving as the alternate venue.
The second match of the next competition will be a doubleheader between Bengaluru and Delhi at CCI on March 5, according to the tentative itinerary that has been making the rounds. The first matchup in the competition pits Ahmedabad, owned by Gautam Adani, against Mukesh Ambani’s Mumbai, which has considerably more significant consequences.
The WPL curtain-raiser will include the teams owned by the Indian billionaires, who also have a franchise apiece in the existing ILT20. Apart from the matches, Cricbuzz has stated that the premier cricketing organisation intends to hold the inaugural edition in Mumbai at the CCI and DY Patil Stadium.
The Wankhede, the city’s most prestigious ground, has remained unaltered because it will simultaneously host the upcoming IPL season and an international match between India and Australia on March 17. The five teams in the 22-match competition will be played at the two chosen locations.
The league stage’s top-placed team will receive a direct trip to the March 26 final, which will take place at the DY Patil Stadium. The teams that placed second and third will compete in an elimination round at the CCI on March 24 to determine the other finalist. To prevent any last-minute alterations among the participants, the BCCI has summoned all five owners to Mumbai for the signing of the franchise agreements on Friday, February 3.
