India men, women to play back-to-back T20Is in South Africa

India men, women to play back-to-back T20Is in South Africa
15 Sep 2017
  • A lot has been said and written about men's and women's cricket going hand-in-hand.
  • Now, BCCI and CSA, seem to have taken the necessary steps on this thought by agreeing on a doubleheader next year.
  • The Indian men's and women's team will play back-to-back three T20Is against South Africa when they tour the country next year.

  • Parallels from history
    Not the first time
  • This is not the first time such an initiative has been taken in a bid to popularize women's cricket.
  • Back in 2015, the Indian board had arranged for three doubleheaders against Australia.
  • During last year's T20 World Cup, the West Indies team cheered their women counterparts and the vice versa happened for the men's match as well.

  • Jhulan Goswami, Mithali Raj suggest A team for women
    Suggestions
  • In a meeting with the BCCI, Jhulan Goswami and Mithali Raj discussed the road ahead for women's cricket.
  • Both of them want more international cricket for the women's team and they also suggested that they should have India A women's team as well.
  • However, a women's IPL, which was suggested some time back, looks bleak given the financial situation.

  • It's a good step to popularize women's cricket
    Globalisation
  • With the doubleheaders catching up quickly, there are better days ahead for women's cricket.
  • To have both the men's and women's matches on the same pitch, broadcasted on the same TV channel, the same commentary team- this will all help in popularising the women's game.
  • In turn, it will help cricket, as a sport, to grow globally.
