BCCI announces squads for Women's T20 Challenge match

Women T20

As per the press release from BCCI, it says, "The one-of-its-kind match featuring 26 players including 10 worldwide stars from Australia, England and New Zealand will be played ahead of the VIVO IPL 2018 Qualifier 1".

BCCI had earlier announced that Harmanpreet and opener Smriti Mandhana will be the captains, and the teams names have been announced as IPL Supernovas and IPL Trailblazers respectively.

With an eye on growing this wave, the BCCI is hosting the T20 Challenge to provide the women's game a platform alongside its most popular tournament.

The one-of-its-kind match featuring 26 players including 10 global stars from Australia, England and New Zealand will be played a day before the IPL Qualifier 1.

"This is being staged as a well-deserved exhibition to showcase the tremendous depth and capability that women's cricket in India has achieved". We have talked to many cricket associations for this match. We've seen the Women's Big Bash League, the Kia Super League, and hopefully in a few years, the women's IPL.

White Ferns captain Suzie Bates, attacking batter Sophie Devine, who holds the record for fastest half-century in women's T20Is, Australia's fine all-rounder Ellyse Perry, wicket-keeper bat Alyssa Healy, Megan Schutt and Beth Mooney have confirmed their participation. "Danielle Wyatt and Daniel Hazell will add the English flavour". The match will be played before the first Qualifier match on May 22 at 2 pm in Mumbai. The legendary Indian cricketer Mithali Raj will be playing under Kaur who will also have Veda Krishnamurthy, Sophie Devine, Ellyse Perry in her side.
