We are witnessing the growth of interest in the women’s game in recent times leading to a rise in the opportunities for aspiring women cricketers around the globe. The recently concluded edition of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifiers witnessed fierce battles between a few associate nations aiming for a couple of spots for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Bangladesh in a couple of months.
