Ahead of the opening match of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024 between Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians on Friday, DC skipper Meg Lanning felt that the T20 tournament for the women creates “high-quality” cricket.

While speaking to JioCinema’s anchor Sanjana Ganesan, Lanning said that the WPL has “world-class players” from all over the world. The DC skipper added that younger players are getting exposure in the tournament.

“I think we’ve got some world-class players from all around the world, which is great. Put that together with all the Indian players who are very experienced now and well known, that really creates some really high-quality cricket. The younger players coming in are getting some opportunity to play on a really big stage and sort of announce themselves. So, I think it caters for everyone in a lot of ways and provides some great opportunities,” Lanning was quoted in a release from Jio Cinema as saying.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians and India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur said that the second season of the WPL will be “more exciting”.

“I think Season 2 of the WPL will be more exciting. The first one is always special. I think now we all have set some benchmarks for the second edition. Everyone knows what we can bring to the stadium. So, I think this season is more exciting and really looking forward to that,” Kaur said.
