The 2020 ICC Women's T20 World Cup was the seventh ICC Women's T20 World Cup tournament.[3] It was held in Australia between 21 February and 8 March 2020.[4][5] The final took place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on International Women's Day.[6] Hosts Australia won the tournament, beating India by 85 runs, to win their fifth title.[7]

It was a standalone tournament, held eight months ahead of the men's tournament.[3][8] Australia were the defending champions,[9] and lost their opening match of the tournament against India.[10] For the first time at the Women's T20 World Cup, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the use of technology to monitor front-foot no-balls for all matches during the tournament.[11] The third umpire assisted the umpire at the bowler's end in calling the front-foot no-balls, communicating this to the on-field umpires.[12]

India were the first team to qualify for the semi-finals, after recording three wins from their first three matches.[13] India won their final group game, against Sri Lanka,[14] and finished top of Group A.[15] South Africa were the second team to qualify for the semi-finals, after they also won their first three group games.[16] England were the third team to advance to the semi-finals, after beating the West Indies in their final group game.[17] In the final match of Group A, hosts Australia beat New Zealand by four runs to take the fourth and final spot in the semi-finals.[18] The final match in Group B, between South Africa and the West Indies, was abandoned due to rain, meaning South Africa finished top of the group.[19] Therefore, England were drawn against India in the first semi-final, and Australia faced South Africa in the second semi-final.[20]

The first semi-final was abandoned with no play due to rain, meaning India advanced to the final, after finishing top of Group A.[21] It was the first time that India had progressed to the final of the Women's T20 World Cup.[22] In the second semi-final, hosts Australia beat South Africa by five runs in a rain-affected match.[23]

Teams and qualification[edit]

The tournament featured 10 teams. The eight top-ranked teams based on finishing positions from the 2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20 qualified automatically. The remaining two qualification spots were determined through the 2019 ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier, with Bangladesh and Thailand progressing.[24] It was the first time that Thailand had qualified for a Women's T20 World Cup tournament.[25] Following the conclusion of the qualification tournament, Bangladesh were placed in Group A and Thailand were placed in Group B.[26]
