The second version of the WPL 2024 (Women`s Premier League 2024) may presumably comply with a multi-city format much like the IPL and the matches could also be performed throughout Mumbai and Bengaluru.

All the matches of the inaugural WPL was performed between March 4 and 26 earlier this yr on the DY Patil Stadium and the Brabourne Stadium.

“The final decision (about venues) might come on December 9 (the day of the WPL 2024 auction) but it is highly likely that this year it (WPL) will follow the multi-city format with Mumbai and Bengaluru being the front-runners at this moment,” a BCCI official advised PTI on circumstances of anonymity.

“The WPL was received well by the fans in the opening year, and it is the right time to take it to different cities. Bengaluru always has a good audience for women`s cricket, and it has now grown because of the RCB women`s team.”

Mumbai and Karnataka cricket affiliation officers too expressed readiness to host the matches, if certainly they arrive their means.

Royal Challengers Bangalore girls`s crew captain Smriti Mandhana too had backed the multi-city format for the WPL.

“It would be great to have WPL in multi-city format. That might be the next step and I am sure people right here would look into it and make it happen. As an RCB fan, I would love to play in Chinnaswamy where people are chanting `RCB, RCB` and just to be in that environment,” Mandhana had stated through the current RCB Innovation Lab`s Leaders Meet India.

“That is something which is one step ahead for us that it (multi-city format) can reach to places where women`s cricket hasn`t reached and to get a new audience going into women`s cricket,” Mandhana added.
