IPL-style meet will benefit Indian women cricketers: Anjum
Bangalore: Former left-handed batswoman Anjum Chopra, who represented India in 12 Tests and 116 ODIs, on Tuesday, said an IPL-style tournament could work wonders for India`s women cricketers as it has the "potential to go places".
"IPL-style tournament will work for Indian women cricketers because it has the potential to go places. I am sure such a tournament for women will be very exciting," she told reporters here.
Asked whether the ICC is doing enough for the growth of women`s cricket, Anjum said although the premier body could do more, it has great plans for the development of women`s game.
On the IPL 6, Anjum, who loves to play the cover drive, said she supports all the teams in the franchise-based league.
She said Michael Bevan and A B de Villiers are among her favourite cricketers.
"Bevan is my favourite male cricketer and De Villiers favorite RCB player. I would have loved to bat against Waqar Younis. He was a great bowler," she said here.
