Australia vice-captain and wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy has said that the emergence of the Women’s IPL will put a lot of pressure on other global organisations and countries around the world to promote women’s cricket.
“[The Women’s IPL] is going to change women’s cricket for the better,” Healy told a news website in long-ranging conversation during Australia’s five-match women’s T20I series against India in December.
“It’s probably going to put a lot of pressure on other global organisations, or countries around the world, to lift – that’s probably the best way that I’ll put it. The most exciting thing about it is that it’s happening and that there’s some buzz around it. It’s just going to be great for the game over here in India.”
