England players may lose WPL 2024 contracts for this reason

England Women's team, WPL 2024

The second edition of the Women’s Premier League 2024 will take place this year. BCCI has revealed that the WPL 2024 final will take place from March 17 in India. However, some England women are under stress as the 2024 WPL final has a close clash with their upcoming T20I series in New Zealand. Therefore, they could lose their WPL 2024 contracts.

England Women will tour New Zealand in March 2024 for a five-match T20I series. The T20I series begins on March 19 with the opening match in Dunedin, New Zealand. Therefore, it will be almost impossible for England players to participate in the opening match and reach New Zealand on time.

Besides, England Women Players who remain in India until the WPL 2024 final will not be considered by the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) for the T20Is in New Zealand. Therefore, they will miss the selection. The ECB will reveal the England women’s squad for the New Zealand T20I series next week.
