An exhibition women's IPL match was played in May where Harmanpreet Kaur's Supernovas took on Smriti Mandhana's Trailblazers.
During the 2018 edition of the IPL, a women's exhibition match was played between IPL Trailblazers and IPL Supernovas in Mumbai before the Qualifier 1 clash. Perry, Meg Lanning, Alyssa Healy, Megan Schutt and Beth Mooney were among the five Australians who participated in the match.
Asserting that the only match was a big success, Perry opined that BCCI should work on playing a full women's tournament.
"The first exhibition match we did was really successful and I guess it's now up to the BCCI to find a way to implement a full tournament," Perry said.
Perry was instrumental during Sydney Sixers' second title win, earlier this year in the Women's Big Bash League. In the 16 innings, Perry managed a total of 552 runs at an average of 46 along with picking up five wickets. Hailing the efforts of Cricket Australia in the field of women's cricket, Perry asserted that the board was doing absolutely everything in their power to for the progression of women's cricket and expected the same from the Indian cricket board.
