Smriti Mandhana led Trailblazers to their second Women's T20 Challenge title in 2020.

Defending champions, Trailblazers, will fancy their chances for another title in their kitty as they have won it twice in three editions. The other team to have won the title is Supernovas. Velocity have never won the championship.

According to the sources, the BCCI is planning to hold a full-fledged Women’s IPL from next year, something which the whole cricketing fraternity has been demanding for an eternity. WIPL, initially, will have six teams and the owners of the current teams in IPL will have an option to own a team in WIPL as well. Contenders for a WIPL team in the open market will only be reached out if less than 6 owners in IPL show no interest in the cause. The idea is still in its early stages and thus it won’t be any surprise if the WIPL is pushed to 2024 or scratched off.
