The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has fetched a sum of Rs 4670 crore from the bidding of teams which will feature in the upcoming  Women's Premier League.

"The BCCI had issued an Invitation to Tender to acquire the right to own and operate 5 (five) franchises in the WPL. Pursuant to the tender process, various interested parties submitted their bids for the WPL franchises. The financial bids were submitted by the authorised representatives of the interested parties today," the board said in a statement.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah tweeted: "Today is a historic day in cricket as the bidding for teams of inaugural #WPL broke the records of the inaugural Men's IPL in 2008! Congratulations to the winners as we garnered Rs.4669.99 Cr in total bid. This marks the beginning of a revolution in women's cricket and paves the way for a transformative journey ahead not only for our women cricketers but for the entire sports fraternity. The #WPL would bring necessary reforms in women's cricket and would ensure an all-encompassing ecosystem that benefits each and every stakeholder."

BCCI President and 1983 world Cup hero Roger Binny said the league will give players from India and abroad a chance to grow.

BCCI President, Mr Roger Binny said: “I congratulate the winners for making successful bids to own WPL teams. The league will give players from India and abroad a chance to learn and grow together. It will pave the way for development at the grassroots level with the inclusion of more women cricketers.
