Hard times for women's cricket in India

02 Aug 2020 04:15 PM

There has been much talk that women’s cricket being in the doldrums in India. The England tour was cancelled last month and there was speculation that the women’s exhibition IPL will also be cancelled.

The idea is to give them some practice before they play the IPL games in Dubai between November 1-10 with 4 teams fighting for the Women's T20 Challenge trophy.

Then they will play against the West Indies before traveling Down Under to get ready for the women's World Cup. The BCCI has hosted Women's IPL exhibition matches in the last 2 years but has said a full-fledged women's T20 tournament will not take place so soon. The coronavirus pandemic has also forced India women to lose out on an opportunity for some challenging competitive cricket in England.
