The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the match schedule for the inaugural ICC U19 Women’s World Cup that will take place in South Africa between 14-29 January 2023.

In August, Cricket South Africa (CSA) revealed that Benoni and Potchefstroom will be the host cities for the prestigious event. Two fields will be utilised in each city; Willowmoore Park (main and B field) and the JB Marks and NW University Ovals in Potchefstroom.

41 matches will be played between four venues with sixteen participating teams namely:

Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Indonesia, Ireland, New Zealand, Pakistan, Rwanda, Scotland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates (UAE), United States of America (USA), West Indies, and Zimbabwe.

South Africa, in Group D, will face up against India, Scotland and United Arab Emirates (UAE). The opening match for the home-side will be on Saturday, 14 January 2022 at 13h45 against India at Willowmoore Park, Benoni.

SA U19 Women’s Head Coach, Dinesha Devnarain, shared the journey that the team has taken with the young women building towards the first-ever ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup.

“We have been working hard with the girls on how we want play and the processes needed to take our game to the next level,” said Devanarain.

“The CSA development structures have allowed us to build our own brand of play that we are confident in. We have hosted multiple camps, and we are working closely with the provincial coaches to ensure that our girls are ready for the big stage.

“There are no small or big teams in this tournament and that will be our approach for every game. We are hoping the South African public will back us in every way and show up for every game to cheer for the next generation of Proteas Women,” Devnarain concluded.

South Africa will also be hosting the 8 th ICC Women’s T20 World Cup after the conclusion of the Under 19 tournament.
