Australia’s elite women’s cricketers will take centre stage at a major charity breakfast when Canberra hosts matches as part of the Women’s T20 World Cup.

The 2020 Lord’s Taverners ACT Women’s Cricket Breakfast, which is being staged in partnership with Cricket ACT, is taking place at the National Press Club of Australia on Thursday, 27 February.

“The excitement is really building for the Women’s T20 World Cup, which promises to be an outstanding festival of cricket from 21 February-8 March inclusive,” said Lord’s Taverners ACT President, Ric Smith.

“We are fortunate that Manuka Oval is hosting five matches in the tournament across three days from 26-28 February, including Australia playing Bangladesh on the evening of Thursday, 27 February.

“On the morning of the Australian match, the Lord’s Taverners ACT – in partnership with Cricket ACT – is pleased to be holding a Women’s Cricket Breakfast to recognise the achievements of the Australian team to date and preview its upcoming matches in the T20 World Cup.”
