There are more than 20 matches to be played in this qualification tournament too and it will be intriguing to see the teams that make it to the World Cup.
The tournament commences from tomorrow, November 21, and the Women's teams of Pakistan, USA, Thailand, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh (Group B); Irelands, Netherlands, Sri Lanka, and West Indies (Group A) will compete in two groups.
PNG were also geared up to feature in the tournament but we won't see them due to a COVID-19 outbreak with multiple returns of positive PCR tests.
The top three teams from each group will qualify for the Super Six stage and the top three from the Super Six will get a spot in the World Cup.
Lanka Premier League
The Sri Lanka Premier League has been picking up in recent years and we are expecting a more competitive and grander audience reception this season.
Some of the big names feature in the tournament, while fans also watch it as they can witness some cricketers who aren't active in the international circuit anymore.
5 teams feature in the tournament and the tournament is set to begin from December 5 until December 23. The teams that are featuring are Galle Gladiators, Jaffna Kings, Colombo Stars, Dambulla Giants, and Kandy Warriors.
Big Bash League (Men's)
With the next T20 World Cup lined up in Australia in the very next year, this year's Big Bash League is anticipated to be better than the previous seasons.
Everyone would want to perform the best on the Australian pitches and put themselves in contention for a spot in the T20 World Cup. Replacing a player from the T20 World Cup-winning squad would be difficult but Australia do have a ruthless team selection history.
The Big Bash League also commences on December 5 but it concludes on December 28th. Eight teams feature namely, Brisbane Heat, Sydney Sixers, Melbourne Renegades, Sydney Thunder, Adelaide Strikers, Perth Scorchers, and Hobart Hurricanes.
Well, this needs no introduction. One of the fiercest rivalries in cricket returns to action and fans would be eager to see how this pans out.
Both England and Australia have a solid squad that not only possesses the quality but also the aggression that this rivalry anticipates.
The teams have balanced batting, bowling, and fielding and it will be exciting to see who claims the Ashes this time.
