He also hinted that the performing players will have more chances of participating in that game.
“The venue for the match is yet to be finalised. We will have to see the performances of the players (and then select) them.”
The Women's T20 Challenge will have one addition this time around. Instead of three, the competition will feature four teams, and there will be seven matches in total.
Last year, Indian Women's superstars Smriti Mandhana (Supernovas), Harmanpreet Kaur (Trailblazers) and Mithali Raj (Velocity) lead their respective teams with Kaur helping her team win the third edition of the league.
