According to Rajeev Shukla, the IPL Chairman, the worldwide roster is also set to include the likes of New Zealand's Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine, England's Danni Wyatt and Danielle Hazell and Australia's Megan Schutt, Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney and Ellyse Perry, who have all confirmed their participation for the one-off T20 outing. India T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur and vice-captain Smriti Mandhana will lead the two sides which will feature several internationals from India, Australia, New Zealand and England.

Speaking about this T20 Challenge game, Rajeev Shukla, Chairman, IPL, said: "Even as IPL continues to roll like a well-oiled machine, over the last couple of weeks, efforts were made to put in place a similar structure for women cricketers. I think once we do separate it even more, then the skill level of T20 cricket will go to a whole new level altogether." he further added.

Danni Wyatt and Daniel Hazell will add the English flavour.

"The match to be played between a BCCI XI and IPL XI will take place ahead of the first (men's IPL) playoff at the Wankhede Stadium", Rai said.

One change they would like to do is sending JP Duminy up the order as he is playing at number 8, which is a complete waste. After a brilliant batting display, Mumbai bowlers managed to restrict Punjab to 183/5 to bag two crucial points.

Australia will be without their premier batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner during the home series against India later in the year as they will be in the middle of their one-year ban imposed on charges of ball tampering during Australia's Test series in South Africa. India then survived a scare in a match highly reminiscent of last year's World Cup final to beat England in the opener of a subsequent bilateral ODI series in Nagpur.

McCullum told the Cricket Monthly: "I firmly believe that Test cricket won't be around in time, because there's only so many teams that can afford to play it".

India will be looking to launch a woman's IPL within the next three years, Committee of Administrators head Vinod Rai said on Tuesday. "BCCI has been pulling out all stops to promote and nurture women's cricket and this is a small yet significant step towards a prospective league involving women's stars in the future", she said.

With the Qualifier 1 scheduled to start at 7pm IST, the Women's T20 Challenge match is scheduled to start at 2pm IST.
