Indian women’s cricket team opener Smriti Mandhana has batted for a six-team Women’s IPL inn the near future. In a recent conversation with Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, she spoke about the possibility of Women’s IPL while also speaking about her own international career in detail. Smriti is back home after playing in the Women’s Hundred for Southern Brave.

Speaking with Ashwin, Smriti Mandhana spoke about how the BCCI can arrange for a six-team IPL to uplift Women’s Cricket all around the world.

“For now, I think we will have good five or six teams to start with and probably grow to eight teams in one or two years. But till the time we don’t start, we don’t know. Five-six teams, we are good to go with. But eight teams, I am still not sure how it will look like. But I think we really need to start with five or six teams so that we can actually get to eight teams very soon she said.

Domestic Players Improved Quality Of Cricket: Smriti Mandhana

The 25-year-old stylish batter said the quality of domestic players has improved in the men’s game since the advent of the Twenty20 league and the same could be the case for women’s cricket.

“There are same number of states for men and women. So, when they started men’s IPL, there were same number of states. But the quality went higher and higher as the years passed by,” Madhana said on Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube channel.

Mandhana spoke about how the Women’s BBL has helped the management to prepare a strong team and a strong bench strength, saying that she is hoping to see something similar in Women’s IPL as well.

“I played in Big Bash four years back and now the quality is very different. You can see that in Cricket Australia where they have 40-50 cricketers ready to play international cricket any day.
