The Women’s Indian Premier League (WIPL) is all set to be played from the year 2023 and Australia wicketkeeper-batter Alyssa Healy has stated that the announcement of the tournament is great for the sport of cricket.

Adding that the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) has been successful, Healy opined that the women’s IPL is the next big step. Healy further stated that the announcement of the women’s IPL is an ‘unbelievable’ one and the domestic tournaments around the world are thriving.

“I think the announcement for those competitions is pretty great. I mean, it’s exactly where we thought that the women’s game needed to go, that (women’s IPL) was like the next step. I mean, we’ve had a really successful WBBL. Now into the Hundred, there’s sort of some thriving domestic competition, so to see the announcement of the IPL in particular to be able to grow the game in India is unbelievable,” said Healy in the post-match press conference after the encounter between Australia and West Indies.

The women’s IPL is an untapped market: Alyssa Healy

Adding that the women’s IPL is an untapped market in the game, Healy said that the Indian side will be close to unbeatable in another decade. Healy concluded by stating that the women’s IPL will be a tool to showcase what women cricketers are capable of.

“It’s such an untapped market I feel in the women’s game. With so many people, surely they’re going to be unbeatable in sort of a 10-year time. They just really needed a sort of a leg-up in that domestic setup to I guess, showcase what these amazing women can do. So yeah, it’s really exciting,” concluded Alyssa Healy.
