The ICC Women's T20 World Cup is the biennial international championship for women's Twenty20 International cricket.[3][4] The event is organised by the sport's governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC), with the first edition was held in England in 2009. For the first three tournaments, there were eight participants, but this number has been raised to ten from the 2014 edition onwards. At each tournament, a set number of teams qualify automatically, with the remaining teams determined by the World Twenty20 Qualifier. Australia are the most successful team, having won the tournament four times.

Qualification[edit]

Qualification is determined by the ICC Women's Twenty20 international rankings and a qualification event, the Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier. Until 2014, six teams were determined by the top six teams of the ICC Women's Twenty20 International rankings at the time of the draw and the remaining two places determined by a qualification process. For the 2014 tournament, six places are determined by the top eight teams of the ICC Women's T20I rankings, with the host country and three qualifiers joining them in the finals. 2016 onwards, seven places are determined by the top eight teams of the ICC Women's T20I rankings, with the host country and two qualifiers joining them in the finals.

  • The number in bracket indicates number of wins in tied matches by Super Overs however these are considered half a win regardless of the result. The win percentage excludes no results and counts ties (irrespective of a tiebreaker) as half a win.
  • Teams are sorted by best performance, then winning percentage, then (if equal) by alphabetical order
