It is an exhilarating year for the Indian cricket fans; the stakes are high as always, but the setting is familiar. The 2016 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup promises a lot of action and more contentious situations between the 10 teams as each have considerably sharpened their blade since the last ICC T20 World Cup. Taking place alongside the men’s tournament, it is probable that the women’s World Cup will garner fewer discussions and views, but their spirit undismayed, and it is evident by the way all of teams have presented themselves in the pitch. 
 
 
As the defending champions, Australia will initiate the tournament. Closer to home, the Indian women’s cricket team is looking comfortable and poised for a victory. Matches that will be played in superb locations like Dharamsala, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai, etc, will surely herald a transformative experience for both the Indian cricket players and their fans.
