ICC Women's World T20 2018

9 Nov 2018 - 24 Nov 2018

ICC Women's World T20 2018 is a cricket tournament that is closely competed by all the top women’s cricket teams around the globe. The 2018 edition of this tournament will be played in West Indies and will be the sixth edition of this premier competition. It is scheduled to be played between 9 - 24 November 2018.


In February 2017, the International Cricket Council confirmed that this will be the first time that this format will use the Umpire Decision Review System (DRS) with one review per side in the match.


Venue


In January 2018, the ICC announced that the entire course of the tournament will be played in three venues - Guyana National Stadium (Providence, Guyana), Darren Sammy Cricket Ground (Gros Islet, Saint Lucia) and Sir Vivian Richards Stadium (North Sound, Antigua). The latter possesses a capacity of nearly 10,000 while the other two have a capacity of nearly 15,000.


Participating Nations


The participating nations include the host nation of West Indies, India, Australia, England, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Ireland. The last two advanced to the tournament after their successes in the Qualifiers.


Australia has been the most successful side in the tournament thanks to their three triumphs in the year 2010, 2012, and 2014. The first edition was played in the year 2009 and was won the hosts England itself. The most recent edition that was played in the year 2016 in India was won by the current hosts, West Indies.


India's hopes at the tournament


The selectors have picked an all-young side at the World Cup with the average age just being more than 24 years. As it is claimed worldwide, this format gives an edge to youngsters over veterans. The squad looks good enough to compete with the very best in business.


To add to that, the squad will rely heavily on the experience of Mithali Raj. The side is captained by Harmanpreet Singh and Smriti Mandhana as her deputy.
