“India’s women cricketers can now play in overseas leagues in Australia and England, subject to their contracts being approved by the BCCI. The decision, taken during a meeting of the BCCI’s women’s cricket committee on Wednesday, paves way for Indian players to take part in tournaments such as the Women’s Big Bash League in Australia and the Women’s Super League in England.”
However BCCI’s announcement may have come too late, however, for Indian participation in the inaugural WSL, which will be held this year from July 30 to August 14.
The BCCI had yet to decide on the issue when the ECB sent a letter to all Full Members seeking their permission to enlist players. The ECB signed up 18 overseas players and unveiled its final lists in April.
