The BCCI sanctioned women's T20 exhibition match ahead of the IPL play-off in Mumbai on May 22 will feature top Indian and foreign players.
The teams will be called IPL XI and BCCI XI and the game will be broadcast live on Star Sports from 2.30 pm local time.
Like the IPL, seven Indians and four overseas players will make the playing eleven.
It has been learnt that all players will be paid match fees and a daily allowance while a business class return ticket will be provided to the overseas cricketers.
"This is another important step in the promotion of women's cricket. I am confident that this experiment will lead to a women's IPL in the near future," CoA member and former India captain Diana Edulji told PTI.
The BCCI has approached the boards from Australia, South Africa and England, and the names of the foreign players will be announced soon.
The Indian women's selection committee will name the players later this week.
