The first player auctions for the Women’s Premier League (WPL) are set to take place in New Delhi on February 11th or in Mumbai on February 13th. A final decision will be made by BCCI this week.

BCCI was originally scheduled to hold an auction of players on February 6 in Mumbai, but this will leave the five newly formed franchises with WPL’s first-ever, which is expected to be between 4 and 24.

The three IPL teams, Mumbai, Capitals and Royal Challengers, have stuck to the same city with Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru serving as hubs for the IPL.

Four of the WPL franchises have teams in his ILT20.
MI Emirates, Dubai Capitals, Gulf Giants (Adani), Sharjah Warriors (Capri). The Mumbai and Capitals owners run their teams at SA20.
MI Cape Town and Pretoria Capitals. The second reason was that the franchise had limited time to assemble a coaching staff. It is therefore understood that the franchisees jointly requested BCCI to postpone the February 6th auction to a later date.

BCCI has designated his two venues in Mumbai (Brabourne Stadium and Navi his DY Patil Cricket Academy in Mumbai) to host his 22 matches of the WPL’s inaugural season.

A flight to India takes him less than a week, so just playing at his two venues in the same city removes travel barriers and prepares players for matches played in limited time slots. can.
