Here's what he said:

"I think the BCCI is having a rethink based on the performances in the last game, whether or not to increase the matches of the Women’s T20 Challenge. From what I know, there is a deliberation going on that is there enough talent to add a new team. That is what I was telling you that we’ve lost momentum. If I know right, it will not be a new team this year. It will be the same number of teams and that’s a result of what’s happened in the previous two T20Is. That is why I was saying lost momentum. When they look at the Women’s T20 Challenge, I think it will be the same. Maybe next year there will be an additional team and doubling of the number of games – four will become 16 with a new team and additional games. But this year because of the South Africa defeat in T20I and ODIs, we might have lost the opportunity of adding a new team."
