Women’s Premier League 2024: WPL i.e. Women’s IPL was started by BCCI in 2023. Now preparations are going on for the second season of the tournament i.e. Women’s Premier League 2024, for which the auction is to be held in Mumbai today i.e. on 09 December. The market is completely ready for the auction. A total of 165 women players will be auctioned in the auction, out of which only 30 players will be auctioned.
So why will only 30 players be traded? So the five teams of the tournament have only 30 slots vacant, out of which Gujarat Giants have the maximum of 10 slots. After this, Royal Challengers Bangalore have 7 slots, defending champions Mumbai Indians have 5 slots, UP Warriors have 5 slots and Delhi Capitals, who were the runners-up last season, have 3 slots vacant.
Of the 165 women players present for the auction, 104 are Indian and 61 are foreign players. Among the total players, there are 56 capped and 109 uncapped players. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see what kind of players teams like to bid on, capped or uncapped. Teams with low purse value may want to look at uncapped players as they can be bought for less money.
Which team has how much purse value?
Gujarat Giants have the highest purse value of Rs 5.95 crore, in which they have to buy 10 players. Apart from this, UP Warriors have a purse value of Rs 4 crore, Royal Challengers Bangalore have Rs 3.35 crore, Delhi Capitals Rs 2.25 crore and defending champions Mumbai Indians have Rs 2.10 crore.
