After five tournaments played in parallel with the men’s event, the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 finally holds its first standalone edition. The hosts are also the defending champions after their victory in India in 2016. England, meanwhile, are hoping for a repeat of 2009, when they won the inaugural competition while still holding the 50-over Women’s World Cup – which they won again on home soil last year.
Three-time winners Australia remain strong, while World Cup runners-up India, perennial semi-finalists New Zealand and improving South Africa will also fancy their chances.
Meanwhile, the game’s shortest format will allow Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Ireland to dream of overturning the form book.
