ICC Board proposed holding the women’s ICC World Twenty20 in 2020 as a stand-alone event


ICC Women’s World Twenty20 2020

Cricket Australia, hosts for the men’s and women’s ICC World Twenty20 in 2020. ICC proposed holding the women’s tournament as a stand-alone event six months ahead of the men’s edition. The ICC Board approved this request considering it a big step forward for the women’s game in a market where there is a clear appetite for women’s cricket given the success of the WBBL.

Chairman of the ICC Governance Committee and Cricket Australia David Peever said:. “Women’s cricket is undoubtedly gaining in popularity around the globe and we felt that by separating the two events we could accelerate that growth.

“Having the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 as a stand-alone event means we can hold it in stadiums that we can fill, Put on TV at prime-time and ensure it has the space to be promoted away from the shadow of the men’s game. WBBL has taught us that there is an audience for women’s cricket both live and on prime-time television. This decision means we have the opportunity to hold the biggest women’s sporting event ever held in Australia.”
