The most expensive franchise of the Women's Premier League - Gujarat Giants have unveiled their logo ahead of the inaugural Women's Premier League auction on Monday, February 13 at the Jio World Convention Centre. The logo of the franchise has a roaring lion and similarly the franchise would love to roar at the upcoming auction and then, most importantly, once the tournament gets underway.

Gujarat Giants (Ahmedabad franchise) is the most expensive team as it was sold for the highest price - INR 1289 crore (USD 158 million approx) followed by Mumbai (INR 912.99 crore/USD 111 million approx). Whereas the other three teams and there price was leasser than Mumbai and Gujarat - Bengaluru (INR 901 crore/USD 110 million approx), Delhi (INR 810 crore/USD 99.35 million approx) and Lucknow (INR 757 crore/USD 92.85 million approx).

Gujarat seem to have a core coaching group in place as they have roped in two of the biggest stalwarts to have played the game in the women's circuit. Former India skipper and legend Mithali Raj will be seen mentoring the players, while Australia's legendary batter Rachael Haynes will be the head coach of the team.

The WPL auction will have a female auctioneer in Malika Advani who has been given the responsibility to conduct the auction. As per several reports Malika is a Mumbai-based art collector consultant for Modern and Contemporary Indian art and partner in Art India Consultants firm, and she will be seen with the hammer on the day of the auction.

There will be some big names who will go under the hammer and all the five franchises will look to stack up their side with some proven performers and some excellent emerging players.
