About Women’s Premier League:

The Women’s Premier League WPL is a women’s Twenty20 cricket franchise league in India. It is owned and operated by the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI). The first major women’s Twenty20 competition in India was the Women’s T20 Challenge. This started as a single-match tournament in 2018 and was expanded to a three-team, three-match competition held in 2019, 2020, and 2022. 

In February 2022, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly announced plans to establish a women’s version of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the major men’s Twenty20 franchise cricket competition in India, replacing the Women’s T20 Challenge. By the end of August month, plans were put into action and finally, in October the BCCI announced that they were considering a five-team tournament that would take place in March 2023. This league was informally known as the Women’s Indian Premier League; the BCCI later named it the Women’s Premier League.

On 28 January 2023, the BCCI invited bids for the league’s title sponsorship rights until 2027. Tata Group won the bid for an undisclosed amount. Mumbai Indians were the inaugural winners of the tournament, beating Delhi Capitals in the final.
