India vs Pakistan in Commonwealth games ! Dates confirmed !

The Indian Women’s cricket team is set to kickoff it’s campaign in the Commonwealth games against arch-rivals Australia on 29th July. The finals of the tournament is set to be played on 7th August which tells us that the women’s leg of Cricket will be finished in a distinctively smaller period of time as compared to the Men’s leg.

However, all eyes will be on the match that will be played 3 days later, on 31st July. i.e, the much awaited faceoff between the Indian Women’s Cricket team and Pakistan Women’s Cricket team. The Men’s team of Pakistan defeated the blues in the T20 World Cup just a few days ago, causing a billion heartbreaks. Our girls now have a chance to take revenge in style and they will do that in all probability.

India’s Women’s cricket team has made great improvements in the last few years and they are currently one of the best in the world. They must therefore have no difficulties in defeating our neighbours.

ECB announced in their recent statement that “The women’s cricket T20 competition will be held at the Edgbaston Stadium from the 29 July, with the bronze and gold medal matches taking place on 7 August.”

ICC’s acting chief Executive Geoff Allardyce has shown his enthusiasm and excitement in this great step of adding Women’s cricket to Commonwealth games. He said, “We have seen tremendous growth of the women’s game over the past few years and the Commonwealth Games will undoubtedly be another major moment on that journey.

“Today’s announcement of the match schedule gives fans lots to look forward to, not least with the opening game between ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 finalists Australia and India and we know that Edgbaston will provide a great stage for the competition.”

Matt Kidson, Director of Sport for Birmingham 2022, said: “Not surprisingly we have already sold thousands of tickets for both the netball and cricket T20 sessions through our ticket ballots”

“But we know that some fans have been waiting to find out the details of the match schedules before choosing which sessions they want to attend, so we’re expecting these sports to sell quickly, when ticket sales go live.”
