  • World Test Championship to exclude virus-hit matches

This decision was based on the fact that two other major Women's cricket tournaments, the ODI World Cup and the Commonwealth Games, were already taking place in 2022.

With no major women's cricket events now scheduled for 2023, the ICC Board pushed the Women's T20 World Cup back, claiming this will better support player preparation and to continue to build the momentum around the women's game beyond 2022.

"As there are now no major women's events scheduled to take place in 2023 the Board confirmed the switch for the T20 World Cup to better support player preparation and to continue to build the momentum around the women's game beyond 2022", read the statement. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the world to rejig things, the ICC pushed the showpiece event by a year and it will now be played in February-March 2022.

ICC Women's Cricket World Cup 2022 CEO Andrea Nelsons says: "As host nation of this global sports event, it's important that we provide world class venues and facilities for the teams competing in the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup 2022 (CWC22)".

Women's cricket is also making its Commonwealth Games debut in 2022, with a T20 contest in Birmingham in July and August. It is the first-time ever that an Under-19 World Cup was planned for women's cricket.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday announced the introduction of minimum age restriction for international cricket.

Cricket Wellington CEO Cam Mitchell says: "We're delighted to have been able to upgrade the facilities here at the Basin to ensure that they are suitable for all players that attend our ground, not just at the World Cup but for future women's domestic and worldwide matches".

However, in exceptional circumstances, boards could apply to ICC to allow a player under the age of 15 to play for the respective country. The limit has been set at 15 for the ones who want to play in any form of men's, women's, or under 19-international cricket.

The ICC board also introduced a new policy in its Anti-Corruption Code. The policy enables the ICC ACU to exclude corruptors who are "non-participants" to the Code to prevent people who attempt to corrupt the sport from involvement in the game.
