Alyssa Healy, the wicket-keeper batsman of Australia would love to travel to India if the Indian Premier League holds another women's exhibition match this season.
"It would be fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed that experience, heading over there for a few days and playing in that exhibition game," cricket.com.au quoted Healy as saying.
BCCI says Women's IPL not possible 'yet' but plans exhibition matches involving the biggest stars during play-offs
“It is probably the next step for the women’s game in the T20 format, so if that gets up and running that is really exciting. I am sure a lot of the girls would be willing to stick their hand up for it.”
Healy was one of the five Australians involved in the first-ever IPL women's match last year in which Trailblazers took on the Supernovas. Australia's captain Meg Lanning also said that being a part of the match last year was a great deal of fun and she would love to take part in it again.
"It was a lot of fun, I would certainly love to be involved in something like that. The next big step for women's cricket is if an IPL could get up – it is certainly an exciting prospect," cricket.com.au quoted Meg Lanning as saying.
There are speculations doing the rounds that there could be a series of exhibition matches played between as many as three over the space of 7-10 days.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is however yet to reveal whether the experiment will be repeated this year. (ANI)
