ICC World T20 2020 Women'sThe 10 best women's teams will compete in 23 matches from 21 February - 8 March 2020. ICC release dates for Australia's men's and women's T20 World Cup Australia's women's team will kick off its Twenty20 World Cup defence against India on February 21, 2020, at Sydney Showground, while the men's side begins its quest to fill the one hole in its trophy cabinet against Pakistan at the SCG on October 24, 2020. The two sides have had very different experiences in the T20 World Cup - formerly the World Twenty20 - with the Southern Stars winning four of the six previous women's tournaments while the men have never taken home the trophy. Next year, Meg Lanning's outfit will get the chance to win the tournament on home soil for the first time ever, while Aaron Finch's outfit will have its best chance yet to end its duck with Australia hosting the marquee event for the first time ever. Australia's women's side will be out to defend their crown, after beating England by eight wickets in last year's World Cup final at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in the West Indies. Ashleigh Gardner was awarded Player of the Match for her 3-22 and 33 off 26, while Alyssa Healy was named Player of the Tournament. Lanning's side will begin their campaign defence against India on February 21, before taking on Sri Lanka on 24 February, qualifier 1 on 27 February, before wrapping up their pool matches against New Zealand on March 2. Last year's runners-up England will face powerhouse the West Indies, South Africa, Pakistan and qualifier 2. Both semi-final will take place on March 5, with the final on March 8.
