This Women's T20 Challenge match will be played on May 22.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) formally announced their intentions to start a women's edition of the uber-successful cricketing tournament Indian Premier League.
No firm details of the new league have yet been revealed, but pressure for a women's IPL has been building since India reached the final of the women's World Cup in England a year ago.
The member of the Committee of Administration (COA) and former Indian woman cricketer Diana Edulji said that the domestic players, including Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami, Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana and Veda Krishnamurthy, will appear playing together in this match.
With an eye on the growing popularity in the country, the women's cricket is gaining ground and this wave may soon pave way for the women IPL.
Speaking about this T20 Challenge game, Rajeev Shukla, Chairman, IPL, said, "Even as IPL continues to roll like a well-oiled machine, over the last couple of weeks, efforts were made to put in place a similar structure for women cricketers. New Zealand skipper Suzie Bates, attacking batter Sophie Devine, who holds the record for fastest half-century in women's T20Is, Australia's all-rounder Ellyse Perry, wicket-keeper bat Alyssa Healy, Megan Schutt and Beth Mooney have confirmed their participation". "Danielle Wyatt and Daniel Hazell will add the English flavour".
It is also a way to test waters for a women's IPL in near future. T-20 team captain Harmanpreet Kaur and veteran batsman Smriti Mandhana will be captaining in this exhibition match.
