Eight nations, split into two groups, will play in women’s cricket at the Commonwealth Games for the first time in 2022 at Edgbaston, Birmingham, from July 29 to August 7.
Cricket has been at the Games before, when a List A men’s event was conducted at the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, even though it will be a first for women.
South Africa won the 50-over matches, in which 16 teams competed, with Australia and New Zealand earning the silver and bronze, respectively.
