Yo Mahesh can be consistent, having given only 11 runs in 3 overs, taking one wicket against Dindigul Dragons. Ravisrinivasan S and Sai Kishore are also wicket-takers. Anthony Dhas can contribute both with the bat as well as the ball. You can have U Sasidev in your lineup as well. But who will you take off?

I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started.

While I am honestly not sure about an IPL tournament for women, it did get me thinking. Why not mixed sports? Now that girls play almost all the games that the guys do, why n…
