The first Women’s Premier League, a female equivalent of the IPL, is on the horizon and will represent a significant step forward for women’s cricket in India. This will occur this year from March 4 to March 26 in Mumbai. On February 13th in Mumbai, there will be a player auction for the league.

50 lakh is the highest base price while 10 lakh is the lowest. 12 crore are the funds that are available for a franchise. This implies that, unlike in the men’s IPL auction, a franchise might not be able to go all out to bag the player with the limited purse.
