Women’s T20 World Cup 2023: Australia Wins Sixth Title

The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup is one of the biggest events in the cricket world. It was first held in 2009 and has grown in popularity over the years.

The 8th Women’s T20 World Cup was held in South Africa from February 10 to 26. The tournament was held across three venues – Newlands in Cape Town, Boland Park in Paarl and St George’s Park in Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth).

This is the first time that South Africa have hosted an ICC T20 competition. The Aussies, who have not lost a match in the tournament, will face hosts South Africa in the final.

There will be two groups of five teams each, which means that the top two teams from each group will advance to the semi-finals. Each team will play against the other four teams in their group once. This will award them with two points for each win and zero points for each loss.

All the teams are ranked in the top five in the ICC T20 ranking. This will mean that they will have a good chance of reaching the final as these teams have dominated the T20 World Cup in the past.

India are also a strong contender for the title as they have some of the best T20 players in the world.

The women in green have a good squad and they have a few bowlers who could prove a nightmare for their opponents. These include Laura Wolvaardt, Nonkululeko Mlaba and Shabnim Ismail.

These are some of the best T20 players in the World and will make for a thrilling tournament. It will be difficult to predict who will win the Women?s T20 World Cup 2023, but the current world champions will be hard to beat.

In the end, Australia, England, South Africa and India advanced to the semi-finals.

Australia Advances to Seventh Consecutive Final

Australia survive nailbiter to beat India and reach T20 World Cup final

Australia beat India by five runs in the first semi-final to take their place in the final of the Women?s T20 World Cup 2023. They relied on top-order batting from Beth Mooney and Meg Lanning and two wickets from Ashleigh Gardner and Darcie Brown.

Australia chose to bat first and got off to a good start, with Beth Mooney scoring 54 off 37 balls and captain Meg Lanning scoring 49 off 34 balls. Chasing 173, India got off to a bad start, but Harmanpreet Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues powered their team.

However, Jemimah perished for 43 while Harmanpreet separated for 52 as India stumbled in the chase and were restricted to 167/8. For Australia, Darcie Brown and Ashleigh Gardner caught two wickets each.

South Africa First Time to Qualify for Finals

Proteas Women make cricket history at T20 World Cup

South Africa have made history by reaching their first T20 World Cup Final. The South African women beat England by 6 runs in the semi-final and will meet Australia in the Final at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town.

The game was a classic and a nail-biting one. The Proteas pushed their way through despite the pressure and came back into it with a vengeance. Tazmin Brits and Laura Wolvaardt dismantled the three-pronged spin attack that England had relied on for much of their group stage matches.

Ayabonga Khaka has been a key figure for the South African team and she was one of the key players who helped them reach their first ever World Cup Final. She bowled a brilliant over in the match and removed three English batters.

Shabnim Ismail is a right-arm fast bowler for the South African women’s cricket team. She made her debut for the national side in January 2007. She has taken a total of 15 wickets in the Women’s T20 World Cup so far, including three against the hosts. She was one of the players who helped South Africa reach a historic win over England in semi-final.

Tazmin Brits has overcome multiple setbacks in her life including a near-fatal car accident and suicidal thoughts to shine at the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. She won her first international cap in 2018. In her semi-final against England, she scored 68 runs off 55 balls and was part of a 96-run opening stand with Laura Wolvaardt. She was also named Player of the Match.

Final AUS vs SA

Awesome Australia crowned Women's T20 World Cup champions for sixth time

The Australian women’s team has won their sixth T20 World Cup title after beating South Africa by 19 runs in the final at Newlands on Sunday. Beth Mooney’s unbeaten 74 helped Australia post 156/6 in 20 overs.

The victory means that Australia have won six T20 World Cups in the last eight years and have etched their name as one of the greatest sides in the history of competitive team sport. The win also means that Meg Lanning has become the first captain in women’s or men’s cricket to win four T20 World Cup titles.

Laura Wolvaardt’s half-century went in vain as the hosts failed to chase down 157 with Chloe Tryon dismissed for 25 off 23 balls.

Beth Mooney

Beth Mooney brings up fifty with fine shot | Women's T20WC 2023

Beth Mooney smashed an impressive unbeaten knock of 74 runs to help Australia win the Women’s T20 World Cup Final 2023 against South Africa by 19 runs at Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town on Sunday. Mooney scored nine fours and a six in an exemplary innings to help the Kangaroos post 156/6 in 20 overs, stifling South Africa’s chase with a brilliant bowling display.

The Aussies got off to a strong start as Beth Mooney (74 not out off 53 balls) made history of her own, becoming the first player to hit two half-centuries in the Women’s T20 World Cup.

Mooney had lost opener Alyssa Healy for 18, but she rebuilt the innings with Gardner in a steady manner to guide the home team to victory.

Mooney opened the batting with Alyssa Healy and put on an important 46-run partnership for the second wicket with Ashleigh Gardner (29). The two batters built a solid foundation as Mooney passed fifty in an innings that deservedly saw her named player of the match. She then proceeded to accelerate and smashed an unbeaten 74 off 53 balls that included nine boundaries and a six, as the Kangaroos romped home with a run-a-ball win.

Megan Schutt

Megan Schutt speared in a momentum-changing full ball to put Australia back on track for a 19-run win against South Africa in the Women’s T20 World Cup Final 2023. With the score hanging in the balance, Australia found a little comfort from their big-match temperament and were able to see it out to add a sixth title to their bulging trophy cabinet.

Ashleigh Gardner

Gardner: Rest of the world are closing the gap on Australia

Ashleigh Gardner defended her team’s record third T20 World Cup title with a superb spell of 5/12, by some way the best bowling figures in women’s T20 cricket. She helped propel the five-time champions to a comfortable 19-run victory in the final at Australia.

Ashleigh Gardner smashed a brilliant 29 off 21 to help build Australia’s total of 156.

Gardner over calmed down the pressure and Schutt trapped Wolvaardt plumb LBW in the next over to put the brakes on a spirited attempt by the hosts.

Laura Wolvaardt

Laura Wolvaardt who smashed the biggest knock of her career, reaching half-century in style with a flighted delivery from Darcie Brown that drilled over the bowler’s head for a huge six!

South Africa, meanwhile, remained in the hunt for their maiden World Cup title with a strong bowling and fielding performance. Laura Wolvaardt, who struck a career-best 48 off just 48 balls, and Chloe Tryon, who hit 25 off 23 balls, set up a good chase with 39 runs from overs 13 to 15.

The South Africans limped to the end as Megan Schutt removed Wolvaardt (61 off 48 balls) and Jess Jonassen cleaned up Chloe Tryon (25) as the required rate of scoring proved too much for the hosts in their death overs.

Shabnim Ismail

Stunning Shabnim equals T20 World Cup record

Veteran pacer Shabnim Ismail had been in terrific form during this tournament. She clocked the ball at an 80 mph (128 kph) speed during the semifinal against England women. She scalped three wickets for 27 runs and bowled the penultimate over to get rid of England captain Heather Knight. Ismail also claimed the wickets of Sophia Dunkley and Alice Capsey to help South Africa take control of the game while chasing a 165-run target.
