“Of course, it’s being said that there will be a six-team women’s IPL next year, which is a very good thing,” India Women’s opener Shafali Verma reacting to the news. “All our women players, including the domestic cricketers, will get to learn a lot, which is a very good thing. My favorite IPL team is Mumbai Indians. I love watching them play and get to learn a lot from them.”
