When they open their season on February 11 against New Zealand, the team is expected to defend the crown based on recent performances. On February 12, a high-stakes match between team India and Pakistan will include Harmanpreet Kaur as its captain.

We examine the three locations for the major event, as revealed by the ICC, on the eve of the Women’s T20 World Cup.

Here is all the information you need to know about the 2023 Women’s T20 World Cup venues:

3. Boland Park, Paarl

Boland Park in Paarl, South Africa, is one of the most picturesque venues in the world given the setting, making any game played there unquestionably thrilling to watch. The ground, with a 10,000-seat capacity, is the smallest of the three host sites. Additionally, the narrower borders and quick outfield can help the batters, and teams should anticipate a run-fest on the field. In terms of the main event, Paarl will host six group stage matches, which is the second-highest number among the three locations.

2. St George’s Park Cricket Ground, Gqeberha

The St George’s Park Cricket Ground in Gqeberha is situated within the view of the seashore and is home to Port Elizabeth Cricket Club, one of the oldest cricket clubs in South Africa. Fans will be able to see up to five matches of the main event being played on the ground, which has a seating capacity of 19,000 people. The surface has a good deal of bounce, which bowlers will try to take advantage of as the competition progresses.

1. Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town

Twelve games, including the final and both semifinal matches, will be played on the Cape Town field. Due to its proximity to Devil’s Peak and Table Mountain, both of which can be seen from the pitch, it is regarded as one of the most picturesque cricket grounds in the world. The 25,000-capacity stadium, originally opened in 1888, is sure to be crowded with spectators throughout the suspenseful knockout matches. Both bowlers and hitters can benefit from the 22-yard strip of grass. At this location, spectators will see an exciting battle between the bat and ball throughout the competition.
