Indian women’s cricket team veteran batsman Jemima Rodriguez says organizing the women’s IPL is now very important. “There are so many great talents in domestic cricket in India and they need to be given the right platform,” he said. The veteran feels that sharing the dressing room with international players will greatly benefit domestic players. Rodriguez said in a conversation with the BBC that young women get a chance to learn a lot from the IPL and know how hard it is to play for India.

Rodriguez said, ‘Once these girls know this is the benchmark and we need to do this, then they have more work to do. This is very important for India as the gap between domestic and international players is widening. You see boys and girls playing cricket on every street in India. There is no shortage of future players. I think the time has come to organize a women’s IPL.
“I think the time has come for us to have the women’s IPL. The women’s IPL will make women’s cricket better.” – Jemima Rodriguez (for BBC)

After playing in these leagues, she feels that Indian women should have a league of their own. “When we see women’s IPL going on, then KSL and then Hundred, we think about when we play women’s IPL. This will greatly benefit women’s cricket.
