Women’s T20 World Cup 2022 postponed to 2023

The Women’s T20 World Cup has been postponed by a year, giving an opportunity to all the players to work hard.

The Women’s T20 World Cup which was supposed to start on 2022 has been postponed to February 9-26 2023, because there will be no major women’s event taking place in that year, the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed on Thursday.

The Women’s T20 World Cup was officially scheduled to be held in late 2022 in South Africa. International Cricket Council (ICC) CEO, Manu Sawhney explained the step, saying that this decision will help the players to balance their workload which will become an opportunity for them to perform well.


“Moving the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup to 2023 makes perfect sense on a number of levels. Firstly, it will provide a better workload balance for players giving them the best possible opportunity to perform to the highest levels on a global stage. “Secondly, we can continue to build the momentum around the women’s game through 2022 and into 2023. We are committed to fuelling the growth of the women’s game and today’s decision enables us to do that over the longer term,” Sawhney was quoted as saying in an ICC said.

The previous edition of the Women’s T20 World Cup took place in February-March this year, in which Australia defeated India by 87 runs in the finals.

The ICC earlier this August, declared that the 2021 Women’s T20 World Cup in New Zealand was shifted by a year giving every player an opportunity to prepare themselves.
