Women's Premier League

A few numbers from the inaugural Women's Premier League
  • ₹ 4,669 Cr - Bidding amount for 5 franchisees
  • ₹ 951 Cr - Broadcast rights for 5 years
  • ₹ 59.65 Cr - Players’ Auction. 
However, the way it panned out the teams seemed willing to go beyond the ₹ 12 Cr cap placed on each of them. 

Seeing the numbers here, especially in light with global sports (and not just women’s league), seems BCCI have underestimated their own product! Given the level of interest, they could easily have gone for extra teams, more players & larger purses for the franchisees.

The expansion of the league is not too far away!
