In a glamorous ceremony at the Eden Gardens on Monday, the drafting process for the inaugural edition of the CAB Women’s Club Cricket tournament took place with 150 women cricketers picked by 10 clubs.

The purpose behind organising the meet is to identify, promote, and nurture talents from Bengal and to expose the players to the high-octane T20 competition, the Women’s Premier League.


“Thank you to all the clubs for participating in the tournament. This is a good platform for the players to showcase their talent to the coaches and spotters, and this could be a path to the Bengal team and also Women’s Premier League in future. I wish the cricketers all the best, and I hope you will give it all to win it for your team,” said CAB President Snehasish Ganguly.

“I am very happy that such a good tournament is being staged by CAB, and this will help us discover more women talent. The players should give their best. The initiative taken by Mr Ganguly will surely help,” said CAB Vice-President Amalendu Biswas.

“This will indeed be a tournament to watch out for as talented women cricketers will be in focus. I wish all the players the best, and I hope we will surely discover more talent for Bengal in the future,” cricketer Jhulan Goswami said.
