ICC Women’s World Twenty20 is an international cricket event. The latest Twenty20 was held at Sri Lanka in September-October 2012. The tournament was initiated by group matches which were played for qualification rounds. The group matches were held at the Galle International Stadium. This was followed by the semi-finals and finals at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The women’s tournament was held along with the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 men’s tournament.
Australia won the tournament. They also beat England who was a hot favorite before the tournament. Australia won the final match by 4 runs. Charlotte Edwards, the captain of the English side put the defeat down to her team’s lack of discipline. Later, Ebony Rainford, specialist analyst felt however, that the defeat was caused by poor performance of the English bowlers and the fact that England was unable to rotate the strike effectively. Charlotte Edwards was awarded Player of the Tournament. She had totted up a total of 172 runs which averaged out at 43 runs per game.
The ICC Women’s World Twenty20 is pretty much the same the “super-eight” and “knock-out” stages of the men’s tournament. After the warm up matches all the teams are split up into two groups and the following matches are played in a “round-robin” format. The best two teams then play a knock-out match and eliminated teams compete with each other for the next tournament to be held in Bangladesh in 2014.
