After the ground-breaking success of ICC Women’s World Cup last year, the craze and fan following of female cricketers have increased by many folds. The cricket fans now recognize them provided the fact that most of the Women’s matches are now being televised.
Recently, the BCCI took a huge step towards popularizing the Women’s cricket by organizing an IPL-alike tournament for female cricketers.
The two teams were dubbed as IPL Supernovas and IPL Trailblazers. While Harmanpreet Kaur led the Supernovas, Smriti Mandhana led the Trailblazers. The Supernovas had renowned international players like Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, and Danielle Wyatt. The Trailblazers side were formed of international stars like Alyssa Healy, Suzie Bates, and Lea Tahuhu amongst others.
