Sehwag Cricket Academy and Confederation of Women Entrepreneurship (COWE), Delhi are launching 'QueensXI a Cricket league for Women' with great optimism and open heart from 31st August to 2nd September. COWE believes that through leadership and entrepreneurship, women can become the torch bearers of woman power. COWE is currently present across India.

QueensXI Women Cricket League aims to give encouragement to women in sports. QueensXI programs aim to fulfill the basic needs of women in sports, needs that are identified through experts and certified organizations. This program helps shape women's passion for sport into reality by bringing them the opportunities, best equipment and experiences on and off fields and in the boardrooms across India.

The women behind QueensXI are two passionate and women-oriented minds who vision a better tomorrow for women in sports - Mrs. Archana Gupta, Director KEI Industries Ltd. and Tripti Shinghal Somani, CEO - KGS advisors who joined hands to support a common cause of #womeninsports.

Sehwag Cricket Academy (SCA) is founded by International Cricketer - Mr. Virender Sehwag. The Academy provides structured coaching and development programmes for amateurs and professionals in various age groups and skill sets.

Opening ceremony of QueensXI Women Cricket League held on 31st August was attended by various dignitaries including Ruby Yadav, Chef Gautam Chaudhry, Sanjana Jon, Shibani Kashyap, Suvarna Raj, Parull Maahajan, Leher Sethi, Ruhi Ganguly, Gaurav Gupta, Mallika Chaturvedi, Nidhi Sharma and Deep Bajaj.

COWE's biggest challenge is to support every possible woman in sports.

Mr. Narendra Modi's biggest campaign says 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao'; COWE with QueensXI aims to give a different side to the same mission 'Beti Bachao BETI KHILAO', give the girl child the freedom to play as well. We endeavour to bridge the gap of opportunities that are currently biased and available for men as compared to women.

QueensXI is an open category Cricket league with national and international female cricket players.

Virender Sehwag handed over the awards for various categories - Woman of the Matches, Woman of the Series, Best Bowler, Best Fielder and Best Batswoman.

Semi-final took place on 2nd September between Sri Lanka Air Force vs Haryana Kings and Northern Railways vs LIC Chandigarh.

Final match took place between Srilanka Air Force vs LIC Chandigarh, LIC Chandigarh (77 runs) won by 10 runs.

This initiative needs to be nurtured with an open mind and a practical approach. Women's cricket has to be understood on its own merit, independent of men's cricket performance. Importantly efforts have to be made for general acceptance amongst public for the sport played by women who roughly constitute 50% of the population.
