The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s newly appointed Vice-President Rajeev Shukla confirmed the women’s IPL was in the pipeline after the BCCI’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday. Shukla shared the updates regarding the Women’s Indian Premier League (IPL) stating that the IPL governing council has been asked to finalize the details for the tournament with the franchise auction to be decided later. “We have in principle decided to start women’s IPL. IPL governing council was asked to finalize the details for the same. Franchise auction and all other things will be decided in some time,” informed Rajeev Shukla.
The former IPL chairman commented on the BCCI’s stand for the International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman post saying that the board has not decided on anything as the elections for the apex council were still far off.
“We have not decided anything on the ICC chairman post yet. As a tradition all the members have authorized the office bearers to take a call on that, we are still to nominate our members for apex council. ICC elections are still far away and we will take a call at the appropriate time,” disclosed Shukla.
