The Indian Women’s Cricket it is not at the level where Indian men’s cricket is currently. However, there are some talented cricketers who are showing their talent to the world in the Women’s Big Bash League currently underway in Australia.
India is a powerhouse in cricket and holds the top spot. India has produced a number of talented players over the years, to name a few is probably the silly thing, but some talented players who have worn the Indian jersey are Kapil Dev, Sourav Ganguly, Ms Dhoni, Virat Kohli and many others, perhaps one day it will not be enough to name them.
But it is women’s cricket where India is lacking. The Indian women’s team has never managed to win any World Cup, but has entered the final a couple of times, but failed.
While there is a number of competitions for male cricketers, from the Ranji Trophy to the Indian Premeir League (IPL), there isn’t much for female cricketers. And although the BCCI does not allow male players to play in foreign leagues, female players are allowed.
And a number of female players play in various leagues around the world. About 10 Indian female cricketers are currently practicing their craft in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) underway in 2021.
