ICC Announce Women Under-19 T20 Cricket World Cup 2023 Schedule

Why should boys have all the fun? ICC is starting the first-ever women’s under-19 t20 world cup on 14 January 2023, and it will go on 29 January 2023. The tournament will be divided into 16 teams. South Africans are contributing as the hosting nation. The competition was initially supposed to take place in January 2021. However, it was pushed back to December 2021 because of the pandemic. In November, the ICC considered delaying the event from its initial January 2021 date until further in the year.

The BCB stated in January 2021 that they would organize the event in December 2021, but the competition was delayed for a second time and was rescheduled to January 2023.

In this article, we will give you all the information regarding the event. So stay hooked!
