The highly anticipated Women's T20 World Cup 2023 is scheduled to begin on February 10 in South Africa, with the final taking place on February 26. Ten countries will compete for the coveted title. At the Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town's opening match, Sri Lanka and the hosts, South Africa, will square off.
Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh make up Group A, while England, India, Pakistan, the West Indies, and Ireland make up Group B. The teams have been divided into two groups. The top two teams from the points table will progress to the semi-finals.
This will be the first time the competition is conducted on African land. Interestingly, this will also be the first senior ICC World Cup played in the country since 2007. The ICC has announced Cape Town, Gqeberha, and Paarl as the three locations for the major event.
Australia are the reigning Women’s T20 World Cup champions and are also the current No.1 side in the Women's T20I Team Rankings.
