After bagging her services for a whopping 3.4 crore in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) Auction, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have named Indian star batter Smriti Mandhana as the team’s captain for the inaugural WPL 2023.


To follow on the path of success that the Indian Premier League (IPL) has brought to Indian cricket, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the formation of the Women’s Premier League (WPL).

A total of 5 teams are set to take part in the competition beginning from March. Among them, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) look to have formed a pretty good team.


They bought the services of star Indian batters like Smriti Mandhana and world famous Elyse Perry. Now, the franchise has confirmed that Smriti will be the captain of the team in the WPL.

Fans have found that is a resemblance of former RCB captain Virat Kohli who wears jersey number 18 and now same for Smriti as well, who also wear jersey number 18.
