BCCI has now approved the Indian women’s team to play in the overseas leagues in Australia and England, in the tournaments such as the Women’s Big Bash League in Australia and the Women’s Super League in England. The announcement came out after the meeting of BCCI’s women’s cricket committee held on Wednesday. The likes of Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami are expected to play in these prestigious tournaments.
The BCCI, however, is too late to come out with the decision, for the Indian women’s participation in the first edition of Women’s super league, to be held from 30th July to 14th August this year. The ECB has already signed up 18 overseas players– from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and West Indies, among which no Indian player will feature this year. The Indian players were also ripped of the opportunity of participating in the inaugural WBBL.
