RCB in a release said: "Mirza, winner of 6 Grand Slams & 43 WTA Titles, is a perfect fit into RCB Play Bold philosophy. Be it cricket or tennis, athletes are made of the same grain, fiercely competitive, love their sport and face pressure situations in their game. Sania has done just that for 20 years across her illustrious career. "Her global stature as one of the leading role models for innumerable women prompted the RCB team management to onboard her to motivate and encourage the women's team of RCB as Sania is someone whom the players can relate and respond to easily in a team environment."

"RCB and its brand philosophy perfectly resonates with my vision and outlook as that's how I have approached my playing career and it's also how I see contributing to sports post my retirement. "RCB has been a popular team and much followed team in the IPL over the years. I am immensely happy to see them building a team for the Women's Premier League as it will push the women's sports to new heights in the country, open new doors to women cricketers and help make sports the first career choice for young girls and young parents with a girl child."
