Sydney: Former Australia captain Steve Waugh wants to see women playing in the country's premier Twenty20 event, the Big Bash League.

Though Waugh feels the idea is a bit "out there", one female player should be added to each team in the Big Bash.

"I think it's about time where we could have one female player per Big Bash side. Going forward, I can't see why the girls can't have representation in the Big Bash. It's a bit out there, that thought, but I think it might be time," Waugh was quoted as saying by The Sydney Morning Herald.
