Following the tremendous success of the Women’s Premier League (WPL), discussions are underway among cricketing powerhouses Australia, India, and England to launch a Women’s Champions League as early as next year.
The idea for the Women’s Champions League was broached during recent discussions surrounding the Lord’s Ashes Test and the World Test Championship final at the Oval.
Nick Hockley and Mike Baird, the chief executive and head of Cricket Australia, played instrumental roles in initiating conversations with their counterparts in the “Big Three” cricketing nations.
As per the reports of The Age, a spokesperson for Cricket Australia confirmed that talks were ongoing but refrained from providing further details at this stage.
The introduction of a Women’s Champions League would mark another significant step forward in promoting and elevating women’s cricket, providing a platform for the best players from different nations to compete against each other in a prestigious tournament.
