Commonwealth Games 2022: ICC wants women’s T20 at Birmingham Games

Highlights: Australia beat England to win World T20

Cricket’s world governing body has submitted a bid for women’s Twenty20 cricket to be included at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) will make its presentation – in partnership with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) – to an assessment panel early next month.

“We would like cricket to lead the way in the Commonwealth in inspiring more young girls to take up sport regardless of their background or culture,” said ICC chief executive David Richardson.
