The second season of the Women's Premier League (WPL) begins on Friday, with defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) taking on last year's runners-up Delhi Capitals in a high-octane tournament opener in Bengaluru.

The opening match of the tournament could set the perfect tone for Delhi, as they will be eager to put behind them the pain of their defeat to Mumbai in last year's final and clinch the gold medal.

Capitals captain Meg Lanning, who has now retired from international cricket, won the Orange Cap last year for scoring the most runs, while the Purple Cap went to Mumbai's Hayley Mathews for taking 16 wickets.

Amidst this surge of overseas players, Indian cricketers generally struggled for consistency and impact last year, but now some of the young domestic stars will be eyeing this WPL with real hope.

With a multi-city format that also includes New Delhi as another host city, the focus turns to emerging Indian cricketers eager to seize their moment in the spotlight.

Twenty-two matches will be played over the next three weeks, bringing together some of the world's best sports experts.
