On the post-match show of The Outside View Live after the final T20I between India and South Africa, Boria Majumdar, noted sports journalist, revealed that the Women's T20 Challenge this year will be a three-team affair, much like last year.
Here's what he said:
"I think the BCCI is having a rethink based on the performances in the last game, whether or not to increase the matches of the Women’s T20 Challenge. From what I know, there is a deliberation going on that is there enough talent to add a new team. That is what I was telling you that we’ve lost momentum. If I know right, it will not be a new team this year. It will be the same number of teams and that’s a result of what’s happened in the previous two T20Is. That is why I was saying lost momentum. When they look at the Women’s T20 Challenge, I think it will be the same. Maybe next year there will be an additional team and doubling of the number of games – four will become 16 with a new team and additional games. But this year because of the South Africa defeat in T20I and ODIs, we might have lost the opportunity of adding a new team."
