In T20 cricket, be it men’s or women’s, a lot of fireworks from the bat are guaranteed. While we may not see the big hits in women’s cricket as often, many runs flow in the form of boundaries.

It is no different regarding the Women’s Premier League (WPL), which was incepted in India in 2023 and is currently in its second season. Though the WPL is taking baby steps, there is no dearth of action in terms of runs scored.
