The coveted Women's Premier League (WPL 2024) is at its business end, and the battles have gotten more intense than they ever were before. This time around, the fans showed up in large numbers, especially for the games where the Royal Challengers Bangalore Women were a part of . Hence, the broadcasters are also leaving no stone unturned to enhance the fan-viewing experience along with motivating people towards caring for Mother Nature.

In the same vein, on Tuesday, March 12, in the ongoing match (Match 19) of the WPL 2024 between Royal Challengers Bangalore Women (RCB) and Mumbai Indians Women (MI), they have started displaying the dot balls with a ticker represented in the form of a green tree. Notably, the game is being played at the renowned Arun Jaitely Stadium in Delhi. No official announcement has been released by the BCCI regarding this initiative, hence, the reason for displaying the dot balls in this new fashion has remained beneath the canopy.

It's noteworthy for cricket fans to take into cognizance that during the 2023 edition of the WPL, the renowned Tata Group, who are also the official sponsors of the WPL, had given birth to a great initiative of planting 500 trees for each dot ball bowled during the tournament. As a result, it is expected that in the remaining playoff games of the WPL 2024, the initiative will be in full swing. Speaking of the result and the impact it created last year, the Indian business giant planted 14,700 saplings after 294 dot balls were delivered during the four playoff fixtures.
