Women cricketers have seen the success of men in the IPL for too long, now it is finally their turn. WPL gives them a chance to claim the stage as their own and shine like they’ve always envisioned. It has taken a long time to get here.

There will be a total of 20 league matches and two playoff matches and these will be played over 23 days.
For the 87 women cricketers from 7 nationalities, it is a moment of reckoning for them.
But for one simple reason – money – this game of cricket is fundamentally different from any other game any of them have played. Jemimah Rodrigues will be paid almost 22 times more for three weeks of play than she makes for a full year of international competition for India. 19 times more for Richa Ghosh. Ashleigh Gardner from Australia and Natalie Sciver from England are in the same position.
During the 22-game season, each of the five teams will face each other twice before two semifinals determine the top two teams for the March 27 championship game. In its inaugural edition, five teams – Delhi Capitals, Gujarat Giants, Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and UP Warriors – spent their money to acquire some of the best talent in the international and domestic circuit. India’s Smriti Mandhana was the top buy as she was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 3.40 crore.
The final match of the league stage will be played between UP Warriors and Delhi Capitals on March 21 at the Brabourne Stadium. The Eliminator will be played on March 24 at the DY Patil Stadium. The final of the Women’s Premier League 2023 will be played at the Brabourne Stadium on 26 March.
