Five Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises are keen to acquire WIPL 2023 teams. The inaugural season of WIPL will take place later this year. Notably, the BCCI disclosed on Tuesday that a tender for the right to own and manage a franchise in the Women’s Indian Premier League has been published. Now that they have expressed interest in funding a WIPL franchise, Chennai Super Kings(CSK), Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Punjab Kings have done so.

The WIPL’s inaugural season, which will take place before the IPL, is most likely to begin in the first week of March. Five teams will compete. The possibility exists that the entire league may be held in Mumbai, which has three fantastic venues, though this couldn’t be confirmed.

He also discussed Chennai’s commitment to fostering women’s cricket, telling TOI: “We’ve applied to buy the bid document. Now we’ll have to find out about the economics of it. We are interested. If CSK doesn’t have a women’s team, it may not look good. We’d like to promote women’s cricket.”

If the Women’s IPL can discover fresh talent on the big stage, as the IPL has done for the past 15 years, the Indian women’s squad will probably only get stronger.
