Plans under way for women's Indian Premier League, reveal cricket officials

India vs Australia

In a bid to promote and test the feasibility of a potential T20 league for women, the BCCI will be hosting an exhibition match ahead of the first IPL Qualifier on May 22 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has predicted that Test cricket will soon end as teams simply won't have the resources to play the sport.Speaking to ESPNCricinfo, McCullum said, "I firmly believe that Test cricket won't be around in time, because there's only so many teams that can afford to play it", he was quoted as saying".

With a plethora of domestic tournaments like the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Big Bash League (BBL) dedicated to Twenty20 cricket, McCullum admitted that the clock is ticking in regards to Test cricket going extinct.
