WPL 2024

Three player replacements to venues and new coaches for RCB, GG – List of changes ahead of WPL 2024.

The women’s Premier League’s second season is about to start with everyone being excited about it. WPL was a big hit last year and this season already has people being eager for it to start.

With the 2024 WPL season commencing on 23 February at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium, there have been some changes revolving around both teams and behind the scenes. 

With major changes this season, many teams have new players and new coaches. Let’s have a look at it.

Players joining the league:

  1. Chamari Athapaththu will be playing UP Warriorz instead of Lauren Bell. Athapaththu is a fantastic player from Sri Lanka, known for her skills in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL).

  2. Nadine de Klerk is replacing Heather Knight in RCB. Knight decided to skip WPL to focus on another series, so de Klerk gets her chance to shine.

  3. Lea Tahuhu is taking the place of Lauren Cheatle in GG. Tahuhu, a talented New Zealand bowler, earned her spot while Cheatle is recovering from skin cancer removal.

About the venues:

Last year, all the matches were in Mumbai, but this time it’s more exciting. The games will be split between Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium and Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

New Coaches:

  1. Luke Williams: now coaching RCB, taking over from Ben Sawyer. Williams has a great track record, winning titles in the WBBL, and RCB hopes for better results under his leadership.

  2. Michael Klinger: new coach for GG, replacing Rachael Haynes. Klinger has a lot of experience both as a player and a coach, and GG is aiming for improvement with him at the helm.

So, get ready for another thrilling season of WPL! The first match between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals promises to be an exciting start to the action-packed tournament.
