Veteran Indian cricketer, Jhulan Goswami has been in the scene for more than a decade now, bringing glories for the country with her exceptional talent. As an experienced mind, Jhulan reckons how big an achievement is women’s IPL for the country and it’s players.

India’s impressive performance in the 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup gave rise to the discussions of a potential women’s IPL competition taking place in the near future. While India lost the final to Australia convincingly, none could deny their sensational performance throughout the tournament. The BCCI is seriously considering the same; however, they are content with organising the women’s T20 challenge along with the men’s league.
