The Asian Cricket Council will be conducting its marquee women’s event, the Women’s T20 Asia Cup 2022 scheduled to be held from 1st October to 15th October 2022. The tournament is set to be hosted by the Bangladesh Cricket Board and preparations for the event are in full swing. The ACC has also finalized the tournament schedule, details for which are given below.
The ACC President, Mr. Jay Shah stated, “For the first time in the history, 7 women’s teams will be participating in a complete round robin format which we anticipate will be a great boost to the ACC associate teams. We are also very pleased to note that the tournament will be conducted in line with ACC’s vision for women’s cricket. The ACC, with this vision in mind, is constantly striving toward being more inclusive. The 2022 edition of the Women’s Asia Cup will therefore see more embedded female participation. For the first time ever, an ACC tournament will see an all-female presence on the playing field, with the women’s tournament being slated to have only female umpires and female match referees. As an organization, we hope to continue to take steps to strengthen the sport by highlighting female talent in every avenue.”
The ACC is positive that the event featuring Asia’s finest will be thrilling and one not to miss.
