NEWS: Indian Women’s Premier League Email

A few English clubs seem to have been contacted overnight by email regarding a “Women’s Premier League” in India:

“We are proud to announce that Knights Sports and Events Private Limited is organizing India’s 1st T20 Cricket League exclusively for Women by the name of Women’s Premier League.”

The email concludes:

“We would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to your club to participate in this tournament. As mentioned, this is a by invitation tournament and all expenses once your team arrives in India shall be taken care off ranging from Playing Kits, Hotel, Food, and Transport.”

Having spoken to contacts in India, we are fairly confident that this is at best totally unofficial and at worst a scam.

(We will updated this post if any other evidence emerges to the contrary!)
