T20 World Cup 2023 Winner: Australia
The Australian women’s team has won six Women’s T20 World Cups
In 2009, there were only eight teams in the tournament. Now, there are ten teams. The team’s WT20I ranking and the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup qualifier are used to decide if they will be able to play. The first Women’s T20 World Cup was held in 2009. England won it. Since then, most of the next six tournaments have been won by Australia. The Australian women’s cricket team has won a record-setting six Women’s T20 World Cups. In 2016, when West Indies won the trophy, they also came in second.
India’s best showing at the Women’s T20 World Cup was in 2020, when they came in second place after Australia won the final. With three runner-up finishes, England has been through the most Women’s T20 World Cup heartbreaks. New Zealand is next with two runner-up finishes.
Let’s go over the complete list of ICC Women’s T20 World Cup wins:
2009 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup champion England:
After beating New Zealand by six wickets in the final at Lord’s, England, which hosted the first tournament, was also named the winner. Claire Taylor of the English cricket team was named Player of the Tournament for how well she hit the ball.
In 2009, England Women won all five of their games, which included the games in the league stage, the semi-final against Australia, and the final.
Winner of the 2010 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup: Australia
Australia’s name was first put on the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup trophy in the Caribbean in 2010. In the group stage, Australia beat England, South Africa, and West Indies. In the semi-final, they easily beat India.
But the final against New Zealand was an exciting game with few points. Even though Australia only got 106 runs, all-rounder Ellyse Perry’s 3/18 in the run chase meant that the Kiwis could only get to 107.
Winner of the 2012 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup: Australia
In Colombo, Australia won its second straight title in a nail-biting final. Even though they lost to the English team in the group stage, the Aussies blew past India and Pakistan to get to the semifinals.
In the semi-final, Australia easily beat the West Indies, and in the final, they beat England by four runs.
Winner of the 2014 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup: Australia
HAT-TRICK! In 2014, Meg Lanning and her team won their third ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in a row. The tournament was the first time that it had 10 teams. Australia lost to Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand in their first group-stage game as they tried to defend their title. But the Aussies were able to get into the semi-finals because they won three games in a row against South Africa, Ireland, and Pakistan.
In the semi-final at Mirpur, Australia beat West Indies by eight runs, like they did in the final. The final was a one-sided win for Australia, who brought England’s score down to 105/8 before reaching the goal with 29 balls left.
Winner of the 2016 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup: West Indies
In the 2016 tournament, which was held in India, the West Indies beat the three-time defending champions, Australia, in the final. At Kolkata, the Aussies made a good score of 148/5. But thanks to steady hits from Hayley Matthews and captain Stafanie Taylor, the West Indies women’s cricket team caught up in the last over.
England was the only team to beat West Indies in the group stage. In the rest of the group stage, the Caribbean team beat Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India. In the semifinals, they beat New Zealand to win the T20 title.
Winner of the 2018 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup: Australia
In 2018, the Women’s T20 World Cup was held in the Caribbean, and the Australian cricket team won it again. In what looked like a repeat of the 2014 final, the team led by Meg Lanning bowled England out for 105 and then easily beat that score with almost five overs left. Alyssa Healy, the wicketkeeper, scored the most runs of anyone in 2018. This made her the Player of the Tournament.
Australia won five of their six games in the Caribbean. India beat them in their last group-stage game, which was their only loss.
Winner of the 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup: Australia
The four-time winners at the time in 2020, Australia was the first country to host the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. The Aussies got back on track after losing to India in the first game of their group stage. They then beat Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and New Zealand.
Meg Lanning and her teammates beat South Africa in the semi-final at Sydney by five runs (D/L method). This put them in the final against India. Australia beat the Indian team by 85 runs in front of 86,174 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) during the final. Australia did a great job with both the bat and the ball. It was the Women’s T20 World Cup final with the most runs between the first and second teams.
Winner of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2023: Australia
Australia beat South Africa in the final of the eighth Women’s T20 World Cup, which was held in South Africa. This gave Australia its third title in this format.
Ashleigh Gardner won the 2023 tournament and was named the Player of the Tournament. She made 110 runs and took 10 wickets for the team led by Meg Lanning.
