Some normalcy will be restored in women's cricket with the Women’s Big Bash League set to go on from October 25 to November 29. All 59 matches will be played in Sydney where an Olympic-style sports village has been created.

Women's cricket was on a high with as many as 86,174 people present at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the final of the Women’s T20 World Cup between Australia and India on March 8, international Women’s Day, until everything came to a screeching halt.

The T20 World Cup became the event to have the highest attendance for a women’s sporting event in Australia and among the highest attendances for women’s sports across the board, and the women's game was flying high. But the 50-over women’s World Cup, scheduled to be held in New Zealand between February 6 and March 7 this year, had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Women's cricket was expected to be worse hit than men's cricket, but fortunately, things have begun to come back on track.

Women’s T20 cricket officially returned after the COVID-19 break with a series between Germany and Austria in August, but the series between England and Windies marked the return of women’s international cricket among top competing nations. A three-match T20I series between Australia and New Zealand, and a three-match ODI rubber between the two sides followed.

Some normalcy will be restored with the Women’s Big Bash league, the premier T20 domestic women’s competition across the world, set to go on from October 25 to November 29. All the matches will be played in Sydney where an Olympic-style sports village has been created.

Five venues in Sydney -  North Sydney Oval, Hurstville Oval, Drummoyne Oval, Showgrounds Stadium and Blacktown International Sports Park - will host a total of 59 matches.

The league stage will end on the weekend of November 21-22, ahead of the semi-finals and finals to be played between Wednesday, November 25 and Sunday, November 29.
