ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020: Schedule, Live Broadcast, Squads, Ticket

Two years after the disappointing defeat in the 2018 Women’ World T20 semifinals, the Indian Women’s Cricket team will look to make a strong comeback in the 2020 edition of the competition that will commence on 21st February.

The Women in Blue will take on hosts Australia in a blockbuster opener at the Showground Stadium, Sydney. The visitors will be looking to get the better of the Kangaroos this time around, having lost in the finals of the tri-nation T20I series last week.

Here’s all you need to know about the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020:

Groups

A total of 10 teams, divided into two groups, will be playing in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020.

Group A

  • Australia
  • India
  • Sri Lanka
  • New Zealand
  • Bangladesh

Group B

  • England
  • South Africa
  • West Indies
  • Pakistan
  • Thailand (Debutants)

 

The groups are fairly balanced, with the last season’s semi-finalists – India, Australia, England, and West Indies are divided equally into their respective groups.

Indian Team

The Indian squad will be entering the tournament as an early favourite, along with Australia, considering their squad quality and past performance. The team has a fine blend of exciting young talent matched with the experienced performers amongst the ranks.

The exciting prospects include the likes of Shafali Verma and Jemimah Rodrigues, who have been in a great form off late. It will be an ICC tournament debut for the 16-year-old Shafali though.

She might just have started her career, but the youngster has already turned heads in the trade by becoming the youngest Indian to hit an international 50 at the age of 15. In the process, she also eclipsed batting legend’s Sachin Tendulkar’s 30-year-old record.

The veterans, including Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana, have been in good form as well.

The latter, in particular, was the standout performer in the recently concluded tri-nation T20I series. She smashed two 50s apart from a 40-plus score in the tournament, helping India make it to the finals.

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (captain), Harleen Deol, Tanya Bhatia, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Shikha Pandey, Arundathi Reddy, Richa Ghosh, Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Veda Krishnamurthy, Deepti Sharma, Radha Yadav, Pooja Vastrakar,  Poonam Yadav.
