The Indian Premiere League (IPL) Auctions happened over the weekend and actor Rishi Kapoor offered a suggestion, 'Just a thought,' he says. In his tweet, Mr Kapoor, 65, asked that why female cricketers are not part of the auction. "IPL. Just a thought! Why not female Cricketers in the Auction. No gender biases, have a mix of players from cricketing countries in the playing eleven! Or is it that men play a tougher game?" he wrote, which soon led to a debate on the Internet. "Till the women cricket will not get equal importance as men there cannot be any chance for women in IPL or anywhere... Why can't we have women coach for men's team or even in IPL?" replied a user.

Another user wrote, "That is because people still think backward that women can't be equal to men and good for household things but they have forgotten women are good at multi-tasking. Today's women are everywhere... Be it sports, business, entertainment or education... Just give them a chance."
