Women’s Premier League- A platform to perform
Women’s Premier League is one of the initiatives of a movement created by a group of like-minded passionate sports organizations with an aim of giving an equal platform to showcase talent for the young women cricketers.

Further, it was found that the ground level structure for women cricket in India was not in place. BCCI the cricketing body controlling cricket in India is not able to give the opportunity to an entire lot of aspiring women cricketers with enough matches/tournaments and exposure to competitive cricket.

The entire organization was as per plan and all the teams and their support staff appreciated the near flawless organization.
There were tremendous learnings from the tournament as well as relating to few ground-level issues. This talent search for women cricketers turned out to be extremely successful and a big boost for Women’s Cricket.
