Five overseas players set to be allowed in WIPL: Reports

It is a change from the current Men’s IPL rules where only four overseas players are allowed

Just ahead of the Player Auction for the inaugural edition of the Women’s IPL (WIPL), reports have suggested that the franchises will be allowed to feature five overseas players in the playing XI. It is an increase of one overseas spot from the current men’s IPL competition, with one of the five players mandatorily set to be from the Associate countries.

"The teams will have the option of fielding five foreign players as long as the fifth player is from an Associate nation," a source, in knowledge of the development, told Cricbuzz. 

In all likelihood, the tournament is set to begin on March 4, with all the clashes in Mumbai for the 22-game inaugural season. In the same reports from Cricbuzz, the Men’s IPL is set to kick-off on March 31 or April 1 at Wankhede.

All eyes now shift towards who would own the five WIPL franchises, with reports suggesting that several current IPL franchises have shown interest. Rs 12 crore will be the salary cap, with an annual increment of Rs 1.5 crore after every year for the next four years with the price increasing to 18 by the end of the first cycle.
