The ICC Women’s T20 World cup 2023 is less than a month away from getting underway at South Africa and build up has already begun. This will be the 8th edition of the tournament with the first Women’s T20 World cup being played in 2009 at England.
It’s almost time for South Africa to #TurnItUp and host its first ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 🏆

The 10-team tournament will start from February 10 and conclude on 26th Feb. All the teams will be hoping for a good outing and hope to become the latest Champions. In the last 7 Women’s T20 World cups, only one team has appeared to be the strongest teams and that is Australia.
The Aussies will be playing to win their 6th T20 World cup and England and West Indies are the other 2 teams who have the tournament at least once. In 2010, 2012 and 2014, the Baggy greens won the title for 3 years in a row and also won it last year at home soil.
So they will head into the WC being the defending champions and they are still the team to beat. Their dominance in the world cup stages will tried to be breached by the other 9 teams. Among the other 9 teams, there is only one change as Ireland have replaced Malaysia – thanks to their performances during the Qualifiers.
South Africa, as the host nation has already qualified and their qualification was also ensured because they are among the Top 7 teams in Global rankings.
Talking about the top teams – England, New Zealand, Sri-Lanka, Pakistan and West Indies will directly join the hosts and the reigning champions.
