Cape Town - The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced that South Africa will host the Women's T20 World Cup in 2022.

The ICC confirmed the news on their Twitter account on Tuesday.

This will be the first time South Africa will host a senior ICC event since the 2007 Men's T20 World Cup.

The Proteas women will automatically qualify for the tournament as hosts while the seven highest-ranked countries in the ICC Women's T20 team rankings - as of November 30, 2021 - will also automatically qualify.

Two teams will be confirmed at the Women's T20 World Cup qualifiers.

In the ongoing Women's T20 World Cup in Australia, Proteas skipper Dane van Niekerk and her side have booked their ticket to the semi-finals.

South Africa are currently unbeaten in the tournament thus far with three wins from three games.

The Proteas women will play Australia in the semi-finals on Thursday after finishing on top of their group.
