Women’s Premier League (WPL) kicked off on March 4, 2019. Five teams competed for the inaugural trophy – featuring some of cricket’s top female stars like Ash Gardner, Meg Lanning, Harmanpreet Kaur and Nat Sciver-Brunt among many more!

The inaugural match of this tournament had originally been scheduled to be played on November 21, but was postponed to November 22 to keep with tradition dating back to 2006. Qatar and Ecuador would meet as they opened against one another while keeping with tradition of both teams playing on one day – including Netherlands and Senegal as scheduled in 2006.

At this year’s Women’s Premier League tournament, top batters such as Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy will vie to claim the Orange Cap and make history in this competition.

First Round

WPL will see five teams compete over 22 matches during its inaugural round.

On March 4th, the inaugural WPL tournament will kick-off with a high-voltage match between Gujarat Giants and Mumbai Indians at DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. Over 23 days, this inaugural event will host 20 league games as well as two playoff matches.

Batters will aim to score as many runs as possible during the tournament in order to make their names known as top scorers, while bowlers aim to capture as many wickets as possible; Megan Schut, Sophie Ecclestone, Deepti Sharma and Renuka Singh will be among those in pursuit of winning the WPL Purple Cap.

Second Round

WPL 2023’s second round will pit the top three teams against each other to vie for entry to the final. While the first placed team will earn direct access, second and third placed teams must compete against one another in an eliminator match in order to earn their place at the summit clash.

At Monday’s tense Women Premier League (WPL) auction, all five teams successfully assembled their squads. The inaugural edition of this tournament will kick off on March 4, with Mumbai Indians facing Gujarat Giants at Dr DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai in a blockbuster clash that features celebrity performances by Kiara Advani and Kriti Sanon before kick-off.
