NEW DELHI, May 15: Swashbuckling Indian opener Smriti Mandhana feels a full-fledged women�s Indian Premier League (IPL) can make a difference in tapping the talent which would help the national team do well at the global level.

The 23-year-old opener also acknowledged the efforts the BCCI is putting in to make it a reality.

�The BCCI has put in a lot of effort, first we had an exhibition match kind of women�s IPL two years ago then there was a very successful IPL with three teams. And this year it was supposed to be four teams,� Mandhana said on the BBC podcast �The Doosra�.

�I�m sure a lot of IPL style matches will take place for a year or two. A five or six-team IPL for women will be great for Indian women�s cricket specially for the World Cups,� she added.

The southpaw hopes the gap between the domestic and international cricket that exists in women�s cricket in the country right now will be bridged soon.

�Women�s cricket in India is growing massively, specially the domestic circuit. But there�s still a lot of gap between competition between international and domestic circuit which I think will be bridged in 2-3 years.�

The Indian women�s team has taken huge strides since entering their maiden final of a World Cup in 2017 and coach WV Raman feels the side has the potential to become the best team in three years. � PTI
