FORMAT: Senior Women’s Inter Zonal T20 2022-23
The competition began in February 2015, as the Senior Women’s Cricket Inter Zonal Two-Day Game. The edition had five zonal teams play each other once in two-day matches. The following season; 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18 were all played across three days.
While the pattern of each team playing the other once is retained, there’s a change in crowing champions. The team that topped the points table were handed over the trophy, but this time around, the table toppers will clash for a game to decide which skipper manages to get both her hands on the trophy.
