Women’s cricket included in 2022 C’wealth Games

Ahead of the possible inclusion of cricket in the 2028 Olympics, scheduled to be held in Los Angeles, the women’s game got a shot in the arm with the inclusion of cricket in the upcoming 2022 Commonwealth Games, to be hosted by Birmingham, United Kingdom.

This is the first time since 1998 that cricket will be a part of the Commonwealth Games.

When the sport was last included during the Kuala Lumpur games in 1998, it was a men’s event and South Africa clinched the gold medal, beating Australia in the final. While the games in Kuala Lumpur were played in the 50-over format, Birmingham will see eight teams participating in the Twenty20 format of the game.
