Five teams — UP Warriorz, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Gujarat Giants, Delhi Capitals, and Mumbai Indians — are ready to put their best foot forward, vying for the prestigious trophy. Teams have already picked players for their squads after the conclusion of the WPL 2024 auction in December last year.

The WPL’s 2024 season will follow the same structure as the previous year, with the top three sides from the league stage qualifying for the playoffs. The team that finishes first in the league standings will automatically qualify for the final, while the teams who finish second and third will compete in the Eliminator on March 15.
