What Happened in the Previous Women’s World T20?

The 2010 edition of the tournament was hosted by the West Indies Australia edged out New Zealand in the final this year to clinch the trophy.

Australia won the 2012 and 2014 edition of the Women’s World T20 as well, to make it a hat-trick of titles, beating England on both occasions. Those two competitions were held in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh respectively

India hosted the 2016 Women’s World T20 and Australia looked ready to make it four titles in a row before the Windies came back strongly to clinch the victory by winning the final by eight wickets and an over to spare.

The 2018 Women’s World T20 was played in Windies and Australia went on to rout England in a one-sided final to win yet again. The only team that managed to defeat Australia in the entire tournament was India, but India’s poor showing in the semi-final saw England send them packing. Australia had earlier defeated West Indies in the first semi-final to set up the final meeting.

This was the fourth time Australia had won the Women’s World T20 title.
