With the women’s IPL, Team India will be unbeatable in 10 years: Alyssa Healy | Cricket News


WELLINGTON: Star Australia wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy has backed BCCI’s plan to launch a women’s IPL next year and says India could become unbeatable in 10 years thanks to the franchise-based T20 league .
Last week, the BCCI announced that it plans to launch the women’s IPL by 2023, although the decision will have to be approved at its annual general meeting. BCCI has offered a six-team WIPL next year.
“The announcement is pretty awesome. It’s exactly where we thought women’s football should go. It felt like the next step,” Healy said as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
“We’ve had a really successful WBBL, and the Kia Super League has gone really well, now in the Hundred – there’s sort of a thriving domestic competitions, so seeing the IPL announcement, in particular, to be able to develop the game in India is amazing.”
Healy, 32, who hit a belligerent century against the West Indies on Wednesday to take Australia to the ODI World Cup final, has long been a proponent of a WIPL.
She took part in the first single exhibition match which was the precursor to the current four-match Women’s T20 Challenge, a competition which will also be held this year.
“He (India) is such an untapped market, I think, in women’s football.
“With so many people, they will surely be unbeatable in some kind of 10 years. They just really needed a boost in this domestic setup to show what these amazing women can do, so it’s really exciting.”
Healy and other Australians have not taken part in the T20 Challenge since its first edition in 2018. A last-minute stalemate between BCCI and Cricket Australia led to the Australians missing the Indian tournament in 2019.
A schedule clash with the WBBL the following year saw the Australians, who made up the largest contingent of overseas players in the inaugural edition of the T20 Challenge, miss out for the second time in a row.
