India and New Zealand will face off in the opener of the 2018 ICC Women’s World T20 – the first-ever stand-alone edition (the previous five events were hosted alongside the men’s version of the tournament) – that will run from November 9 to 24 in the Caribbean.

The top-eight ranked sides gained automatic qualification for the event while the finalists of the ICC Women’s World T20 Qualifier, starting in the Netherlands on July 7, will complete the line-up. The teams participating in the Qualifying event are Asia Cup 2018 champions Bangladesh, Ireland, the Netherlands, Papua New Guinea, Scotland, Thailand, Uganda and the United Arab Emirates.

ICC has promised that all the matches in the tournament will be telecast live, and DRS will be making its first appearance.
