After a nine-year break, the ACC Women’s T20 Championship will return this year. The Malaysian Cricket Association will host the Championship, which will begin on June 17 and end on June 25, with the finals planned for June 25.

Ten nations will compete for the title, which will send two teams to the ACC Women’s T20 Asia Cup. Kinrara Oval and YSD UKM Oval will host the matches.

“I’m pleased to announce the commencement of the ACC Women’s T20 Championship in Malaysia. Good luck to all ten participating teams! We’re playing against each other, but playing as one. May the best team win. @ACCMedia1,” tweeted Jay Shah, President of the Asian Cricket Council.

The following countries will be a part of it: UAE, Malaysia, Oman, Qatar, Nepal, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Bahrain, Singapore, and Bhutan.

Teams will be divided into two groups and will compete in a single round-robin format, with the top two teams from each group qualifying for the semi-finals and finals.

Jay Shah also shared some insight on the development of women’s cricket programmes.

“The last time the ACC Women’s T20 Championship was in 2013. The revival is long overdue, and this, I believe, will set the tone for us to move faster towards the development of women’s pathway programmes in Asia. The development of women’s cricket programmes is an integral component that must be pushed forward,” he said in a statement.

“With this tournament, in addition to India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Thailand, two more countries will be awarded the opportunity to make it to the Asia Cup,” he added.

The top two qualifying teams will advance to the Women’s T20 Asia Cup for the first time in the history of the ACC Women’s T20 Championship.
