new Delhi: The ‘mini IPL’ of women’s cricket, ie Challenger Series will be played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) between November 4-9. A top official of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) has confirmed this.
Women’s cricket has come to a complete halt in India due to Corona virus epidemic, which is being criticized a lot. Cricket Board of India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly, however, has repeatedly said that there will be a tournament of three teams, which has been confirmed by a senior official in the UAE.
A senior IPL official said, “The tournament date has been fixed. It will be played from November 4 to 9. There will be competition between the three teams Trailblazers, Velocity and Supernovas. A total of four matches will be played.
He said, ‘The final will be on November 9 because we did not want to organize it on the day of men’s finals’.
The BCCI announced a new selection committee for women’s cricket last week under the chairmanship of former spinner Neetu David, who will now choose these three teams.
It is believed that the teams will go to UAE in the second week of October and complete six days of compulsory segregation. At the same time, women cricketers have not played for a long time, then they will be given full time to practice.
Please tell that the top cricketers of Australia and England will not be available for this series. The regional Women’s Big Bash League is also being held at the same time as the players will not be available in the UAE.
