WPL 2023: Inaugural Season Could Be Played Entirely In Mumbai

Date:

The Women’s Premier League (WPL), which is set to begin in March (probably on March 4-26, 2023), may be entirely staged in Maharashtra by the BCCI. According to media reports, the first season of the WPL may be played exclusively in Mumbai to reduce the amount of travel required of players right after the T20 World Cup.

Beginning on February 10, 2023, South Africa will host the eighth ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. The top two teams from each group advance to the semifinals, which will be held in Cape Town on February 23 and 24. On February 27, the same venue will host the final.

The Wankhede Stadium, Brabourne Stadium at Cricket Club of India, DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, and Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Gahunje, close to Pune, is expected to host the 22 T20 league games. The renowned Wankhede Stadium is most likely to host the championship game.

The incredible response of the crowds—47,000 visitors packed the DY Patil Stadium for the second game of the T20I series between India and Australia in December—while even the Brabourne Stadium was nearly full for the final three games—seems to have given the Board confidence in holding the tournament.
