The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League was earlier shifted to the UAE due to rising coronavirus cases in India and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is now planning to squeeze in a short women's tournament as well.

The BCCI has been organising women's T20 matches, better known as Challenger Series, during the men's IPL for two years now and same could be the case this time as well.

The men's IPL is currently scheduled to begin from September 19.

Earlier, it was reported that the women's team's tour of England was cancelled amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis. England are now looking to host South Africa women's team in a bilateral series which was earlier set to be a tri-nation tournament.
