The 2018 Women's Twenty20 Asia Cup was the seventh edition of the ACC Women's Asia Cup, organized by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC). It took place between 3 and 10 June 2018 in Malaysia,[1] and was the third edition played as a 20-over tournament.[2] The tournament was contested between Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Thailand.[3] India were the defending champions.[4]

On 6 June 2018, during the group stage, Bangladesh beat India by seven wickets.[5] This was Bangladesh's first win against India in a women's international cricket match, and India's first ever loss in the Asia Cup.[6] On 9 June 2018, Thailand beat Sri Lanka by four wickets to register their first ever win against a Full Member side.[7]

India were the first team to advance to the final, after they beat Pakistan by seven wickets in their final group game.[8] They were joined by Bangladesh, who beat Malaysia by 70 runs in their final match.[9] It was India's seventh consecutive Asia Cup final and the first for Bangladesh.[10][11] Bangladesh beat India by three wickets in the final to win their first Asia Cup title, and became the only other team to win the title besides India.[12]

A month after the conclusion of the tournament, the International Cricket Council (ICC) retrospectively gave all the fixtures full Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) status.[13]
