ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020
Cricket Australia and International Women's Day (IWD) are teaming up to call on sporting clubs and communities around the world to continue to create gender balance.
When equality exists in sport, gender equality is more likely to prevail in communities overall.
When women are recognised and treated as equals in sport – both on and off the field – this momentum fuels wider change.
Conversely, when women in sport are treated differently to male counterparts, this imbalance is increasingly noticed, and rightly called out.
An amazing world record is in sight
Change can come in many forms. Some change is gradual – incremental gains achieved over time.
At other times however, change can be big, and happen in an instant. For cricket in Australia, a moment like that will occur on International Women’s Day in 2020.
The 2020 ICC Women's T20 World Cup Final will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Australia on Sunday March 8 - International Women's Day 2020. This match has equal billing to the men's final, which will be played at the same ground in November 2020.
With 100,024 seating, the MCG is the world's largest cricket ground by capacity so the countdown is on to break the world record for the highest ever attendance for a standalone women's sporting event worldwide.
This exciting challenge presents an opportunity to change women's equality in sport - and wider afield - forever. Will you support the vision?
