ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022

Women’s cricket is evolving year by year. In the last decade, we have seen it taking new tides as women cricketers have primed in all dimensions of cricket. 

New Zealand women’s cricket team captain Sophie Devine has stated that the Birmingham Commonwealth Games this year and the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa in 2023 are exciting times for women’s cricket.

Further, she added that her team will hope to emulate the 2000 title-winning feat.  This year, New Zealand is hosting the ICC Women’s 50-over World Cup. 

The tournament begins on March 4. The first match will be played between New Zealand and West Indies. 

Also, on women’s day, New Zealand will be facing Pakistan. The Women’s World Cup will be held at six different locations in New Zealand.

The New Zealand captain Sophie Devine stated that “The coming year is huge for women’s cricket as it makes its debut at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in July-August and with the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup scheduled for early next year in South Africa. It is super exciting to kick-off a huge period for women’s cricket and we want to put performances out there that both ourselves and the country can be proud of.”

Sophie Devine is one of the most experienced one-day players in her team.  In 2015, she performed a wonderful and memorable knock of 145 runs in the Women’s World Cup against West Indies. 

Since then, she has been a consistent performer and quality leader for the Black Ferns. Sophie Devine, with Amy Satterthwaite and Suzie Bates, has been a leading trio for the New Zealand team.

In a column for the ICC, she mentioned how the 2000 World Cup win at home has inspired her and many of her teammates. She hopes that the current progress will inspire a new generation in her nation as well as around the world. 

“We all know it’s not every day you get to play a marquee tournament in your own backyard.”

“It will be great to showcase our incredible culture and country – we can’t wait to welcome all the teams to Aotearoa,” she added further.
