NEW DELHI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all set to organise an Indian Premier League-(IPL) style women's T20 exhibition match prior to the opening play-off game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Confirming the news, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Diana Edulji told ANI that the board wants to give an opportunity to women cricketers to experience IPL-style T20 match.

"It is a really good initiative. We wanted to give our women players opportunity to experience this. It's just that we want to encourage performance of the Indian team and recognise their performance and help them exhibit their game. In case women's IPL happens in future, then this experience will work for them," she said.

In total, 30 players will be part of the two teams, with 20 of them being Indian while 10 will be overseas players.

There will be four foreign players in each team and it is expected to be a dry run for a potential women's IPL in the future.

The match will be broadcasted live and will kick start at 2.30 pm.

On a related note, the opening play-off of the ongoing 11th edition of the tournament is slated to be held on May 22.
