The Women’s T20 Challenges is returning after a one-season hiatus and the four-match event is confirmed now to be held in Pune, despite earlier reports suggesting Lucknow was going to play host.
The ongoing league phase of the Indian Premier League is being held in its entirety in Maharashtra across four venues to limit travel. Pune’s last IPL match is on 14 May and the Women’s T20 Challenge will then take place from 23 onwards. The Trailblazers led by Smriti Mandhana won the event last time when it was held in Sharjah, where the used pitches did not make for free run-scoring but perhaps the break this time around would provide better cricketing surfaces.
