BCCI
secretary
Jay
Shah
confirmed
the
news
with
a
tweet
on
Monday
(January
16)
that
the
Network
18-owned
platform
has
won
the
bidding
war
for
the
WIPL
for
the
2023-27
cycle.

The
same
channel
also
has
digital
rights
for
the
Men’s
IPL
for
the
same
cycle,
while
they
also
are
broadcasting
the
ongoing
SA20
league.

WIPL
Media
Rights
Price:

Viacom
18
will
be
paying
INR
951
crores
to
BCCI
for
the
media
rights
of
the
WIPL,
which
estimates
to
INR
7.09
crore
per
match.

The
inaugural
edition
of
the
WIPL
will
consist
of
five
teams
and
it
will
be
a
round-robin
tournament
which
is
set
to
take
place
around
March
this
year.
BCCI
will
conduct
the
auction
for
the
WIPL
franchises
on
January
25.
Manchester
United
owners
Glazer
Family
has
shown
interest
in
buying
a
WIPL
side
and
it
has
to
be
seen
if
their
wish
materializes
into
an
actual
acquisition
of
a
team.

The
players’ auction
is
supposed
to
happen
in
February
as
the
players
will
have
to
register
their
names
by
January
26
to
be
a
part
of
the
bidding
war.

WIPL
Impact:

Women’s
IPL
has
been
coming
for
a
long
time.
Given
the
success
of
IPL,
the
women’s
tournament
can
also
potentially
have
a
huge
impact
on
the
dynamics
of
women’s
cricket
in
India.
Women’s
Big
Bash
in
Australia
is
right
now
the
only
franchise-based
female
cricket
competition
in
the
world,
and
the
arrival
of
WIPL
will
certainly
enhance
the
opportunities
for
players
worldwide.

Along
with
global
stars,
we
can
expect
many
domestic
talents
to
take
the
centre
stage
and
showcase
their
skills
in
front
of
a
global
audience.
There
is
already
a
spring
in
the
Indian
women’s
national
team
and
we
can
expect
a
lot
more
of
that
in
the
coming
days
as
WIPL’s
curtain
gets
raised.
