BCCI President Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday told all state associations that the board is looking forward to start the women’s IPL early next year. Ganguly wrote to all the state associations outlining key points on the domestic international and domestic season for 2022-23. In the letter, he said that BCCI is working on Women’s IPL. “BCCI is currently working on the much-awaited women’s IPL. We are looking forward to start the first season early next year,” read the document with NDTV.

“More details on this will be given in due course,” Ganguly said in the letter.

He also revealed that the men’s IPL will go back to the home and away format.

“The next season of the men’s IPL will also go back to the home and away format, with all ten teams playing their home matches at their designated venues,” read Ganguly’s letter.

Last year, IPL league matches were played at four venues in Mumbai and Pune, while knockout matches were played in Kolkata and Ahmedabad.

Gujarat Titans won their maiden title by defeating Rajasthan Royals in the final at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
