The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will be held in Cape Town, Paarl, and Gqeberha (previously Port Elizabeth) in February 2023. According to a separate announcement from Cricket South Africa Benoni and Potchefstroom will host the Women’s Under-19 T20 World Cup.

“The Eastern and Western Cape are prime cricket and tourist locations with great facilities and infrastructure,” tournament director Russell Adams said. “We have no doubt that these venues will step up to make this a memorable and uniquely African celebration of cricket for the local and international fans attending the event.”

The T20 World Cup will consist of ten teams. Australia, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the West Indies will all compete. South Africa has qualified to serve as the host. A qualifying competition will determine the final two teams.

Australia is the current champion. It hosted the event before defeating India in the championship match in front of a packed audience at the MCG in March 2020. The tournament was originally slated to take place in 2022. But due to the scheduling changes brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, it will now take place in 2023.

The Women’s U-19 T20 World Cup will be held for the first time this year. Originally scheduled for 2021, the epidemic also caused a delay. The event will feature sixteen teams.

“This is a special time for women’s cricket in South Africa, we are excited to be the host of the inaugural U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup and look forward to the spotlight focusing on the world’s best cricketers,” Sivuyile Mqingwana, the U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup tournament director, said. “We hope all the players taking part will enjoy their time on the big stage and more young girls will pick up the bat and ball to play the game.”
