“As a key strategic priority for the sport. Women’s cricket continues to build momentum and engage more fans than ever before. With T20 as the growth vehicle for cricket, we are confident that this event and the inaugural U19 Women’s T20 World Cup preceding the senior event will leave a lasting legacy to grow girls and women’s cricket around the world.”
Mithali Raj former Indian women’s team skipper even took her time out and stated that. “The announcement of the schedule takes us one step closer to the Women’s T20 World Cup. This has been a fantastic period for the growth of the women’s game. And I am sure fans in South Africa will be out in huge numbers to support the players.
