India Set to Host Women’s World Cup: India will host the 2025 Women’s World Cup. That is, in 2025, India will host the Women’s ODI World Cup for the fifth time. For the first time since 2016, India has got a chance to host a women’s global tournament. In 2016, it hosted the women’s T20 World Cup along with the men.

There will be no change in the format of the World Cup to be held in India

The World Cup to be held in 2025 will be completely similar to the 2022 edition. Some 8 teams will participate in this tournament and a total of 31 matches will be played. In the previous World Cup too, the same number of matches were played between the same teams.

England to host Women’s T20 World Cup

Earlier, England will host the T20 World Cup in 2024 and 2026. If Sri Lanka qualifies, it will be given the hosting of the 2027 Inaugural Women’s Champions Trophy. These four prestigious global events for women are part of the next cycle of the ICC’s Future Tour programme. The decision about the venues for these four tournaments was taken on the last day of the annual conference in Birmingham on Thursday.

There will be an increase in the number of teams in the T20 World Cup

The ICC has decided to increase the number of teams in the women’s T20 World Cup like men. There will be a total of 12 teams in the T20 World Cup to be held in 2026, between which 33 matches will be played. This tournament will be held in England for the first time. England is consistently performing well in women’s cricket, so the ICC has decided to give it priority.

India-England match turning point of women’s cricket

In 2017, Heather Knight won the ODI World Cup by defeating India in a stadium packed with spectators at Lord’s. This match proved to be the turning point for women’s cricket. After this match, apart from the ICC, all its member countries and sponsors decided to promote women’s cricket. Former England women’s captain Claire Connor, who is the acting chief executive officer of the English Cricket Board, recalled that the match captivated everyone. It was a magical day.
