18 October 2016 Current Affairs GK: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided to organise the first ever ICC Women's World T20 event in 2020. A decision to this effect was taken at the ICC Board meetings which concluded in Cape Town.
Cricket Australia, hosts for the men's and women's ICC World Twenty20 in 2020, proposed holding the women's tournament as a stand-alone event six months ahead of the men's edition.
The ICC Board approved this request considering it a big step forward for the women's game in a market where there is a clear appetite for women's cricket given the success of the WBBL.
