McCrum said that, I have seen the passion of the fans towards the women’s game in India. I have seen how excited our own players get when they see Smriti Mandhana’s cover drive. So the start of the Women’s IPL is going to be great and we would love to be a part of it.

Will emerge as a career option
McCrum said that the number of girls playing cricket in India is increasing, due to which the competition and career prospects in this sport are also increasing. Under such circumstances, organizing women’s IPL in India would help develop the game at the grassroots level as well as emerge as a better career option for young girls. Like The Hundred and Women’s Big Bash League in England and Australia has done. The huge investment in these events in England and Australia has enriched the structure and fanbase of women’s cricket.
