Women’s T20 challenge to take place from November 1 in the UAE


In a welcoming move, Board of Control for Cricket in India president Sourav Ganguly confirmed that a Women’s IPL, in the form of the Women’s T20 challenge, has been scheduled to be played in the UAE this year. According to sources within the BCCI, the tournament will be held between November 1-10. 4 teams will be competing for the crown.

India Today confirmed that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) now plans to hold a camp for the women in October and get South Africa to India if things improve.

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 travelling Down Under to get ready for the women’s World Cup.
