What is special about this year’s edition
Though this tournament is small, but its impact on women’s cricket is going to be huge. The Women’s T20 World Cup held earlier this year was a huge success. Last year, the Women’s T20 Challenge was played in Jaipur and a large number of spectators visited the venue. Everything was halted due to Corona virus. The Indian women’s cricket team has not played any matches since 8 March 2020. The team then lost in the T20 World Cup final.
For the first time this tournament has got an exclusive partner. Jio has bought its rights. Achieving the title sponsor means that BCCI is exploring opportunities for the success of this tournament. If this experiment is successful, it means that big things can happen in the future.
