The event was initially slated to take place in January 2021 but was postponed to December 2021. However, the pandemic forced a further delay. So the Women’s U19 World Cup’s inaugural edition is organized now in 2023. South Africa got the opportunity to host the debut season of the tournament.

There will be 16 teams competing against one another, featuring 11 regular ICC members and 5 associate nations. Four groups have been formed for them. Because the group league will be played in a single round-robin format, each team will play three games during this stage. Following that, the top three teams from each group will move on to the Super Six Round.
The 12 teams who are qualified will be divided into two groups of 6 teams each. The top two teams in each group will then advance to the knockout phase. The winners will square off in the tournament final of the Women’s U19 T20 World Cup at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on January 29 after the semi-finals on January 27.
