The first final of the Women’s Premier League is going to be held at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Super Sunday. Delhi Capitals have already reached the finals. Mumbai Indians and UP Warriors will face each other on Friday in the second eliminator. The winners of these two teams will reach the finals.
But the good news is that all the tickets for Sunday’s final have been sold out. According to sources, the number of tickets issued online for the inaugural Women’s Premier League final has been sold out. Naturally the frenzy surrounding the women’s tournament was evident from the demand for tickets for the final.
It is also known that the ticket price for this final is only Rs.250. Which is much less than the cost of IPL tickets. But the biggest thing is that regardless of the ticket price, the crowd gathered at the ground to watch women’s cricket will further increase the frenzy of the cricketers of both the teams.
The main objective of BCCI behind organizing this tournament was to increase the craze in women’s cricket and bring new cricketers to the fore. And Jai Shahra has gone a long way towards that goal. At present, the BCCI has passed the letter mark by organizing the Women’s Premier League for the first time. Although the final match is not yet. However, in view of the demand for tickets around the final match, the BCCI got hit in the chest to some extent.
Sourav Ganguly thought of this tournament when he was the BCCI President. All the processes have also been started. After Roger Binny took over the board, i tournament was organized. Initially, the tournament started with five teams this year. BCCI Secretary Jai Shah has said that the number of teams may increase in future. Not only this, this tournament will be on home away basis like IPL from next year. All the franchises can play in their respective cities. As a result, if they can play at their home ground, the interest and frenzy of the fans there will also increase. BCCI wants to move in that direction.
