Cricket fans might still be remembering the dramatic ICC U-19 World Cup final where Bangladesh beat India in a nail-biter. Even so, the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 is all set to commence in less than a week’s time in Australia.

Ten teams have been divided into two groups of five teams each. Meg Lanning-led Australia, the hosts and defending champions, have been drawn in Group A alongside Harmanpreet Kaur’s India, Sri Lanka, New Zealand and Bangladesh.

Group B has England, South Africa, West Indies, Pakistan and World Cup debutants Thailand. The top two teams from each group qualify for the semi-finals after which the two best teams will battle it out for the trophy in the final at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on 8 March.

The Indian squad consists of some exciting teenage prospects like Shafali Verma and Jemimah Rodrigues, with the former making her ICC tournament debut.

Verma may be in the very early stages of her career, but Shafali has already made a name for herself as in November last year, she became the youngest Indian to score an international fifty at the age of 15, surpassing batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar and ending his 30-year-old record.

Smriti Mandhana too was in fiery form in the recently-concluded tri-series featuring India, Australia and England. She slammed two fifties along with a 40 plus score in the tournament, helping India reach the final where they lost to hosts Australia
