DUBAI: The International Cricket Council (ICC) is inviting fans to play their part in history by setting the record for most attendance at a women’s sporting fixture during the final of the T20 World Cup 2020.
The stories of trailblazing female athletes feature in a short film released on social media and set at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), where the final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will be played on Sunday 8th March 2020, International Women’s Day.
The film showcases tennis champion Billie Jean King, the first captain of the Afghanistan women’s football team Khalida Popal and Australian cricket legend Belinda Clark.
These women have each played pioneering roles in driving equality through sport and their feats have helped to inspire future generations. In 2020, cricket can build on this momentum and write the next chapter in history.
History shows sport has the power to smash through boundaries and change society.
