These plans have been further cemented as an exhibition game was announced to create buzz and excitement has been arranged, set to happen later this month on May 22 amongst the very topmost global women players.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India hopes to introduce in the next two to three years.

Leading stars from Australia, New Zealand and England will be in action as they join their Indian counterparts for this match. The women's game has garnered the following since the Indian national team entered into the finals of the ICC world cup past year.

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.

"We were in talks with several Boards and I am pleased with the outcome".

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.

Speaking about the 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. Danni Wyatt and Daniel Hazell will add the English flavour". The Twenty20 match will be held at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. BCCI has been pulling out all stops to promote and nurture women's cricket and this is a small yet significant step towards a prospective league involving women's stars in the future. We've seen the Women's Big Bash League, the Kia Super League, and hopefully in a few years, the women's IPL.

The match will kick start at 2.00 pm and will be followed by the IPL 2018 Qualifier 1.
