ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2018

Over a year after the Women’s World Cup in England, cricket fans have another major event to look forward to as the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2018 begins on 9th November this year.

A biannual women’s cricket tournament, the ICC Women’s World T20 was first held in 2009 when hosts England were crowned champions. Since then, Australia have been the most successful team with three titles to their name. In the 2018 tournament, West Indies are the defending champions.

This year, all the matches will be broadcast live from West Indies. The venues are Guyana, St Lucia and Antigua and Barbuda. Moreover, the Decision Review System (DRS) will be used for the first time in a World T20 event.

The tournament will see 10 teams in action. Two of these spots will be filled by the teams selected from the World T20 Qualifier that will be held in the Netherlands from 7th July to 14th July.
