Women's Twenty20 International (T20I) is the shortest form of women's international cricket. A women's Twenty20 International is a 20 overs-per-side cricket match played in a maximum of 150 minutes between two of the top 10 ranked countries of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in terms of women's cricket. The first Twenty20 International match was held in August 2004 between England and New Zealand, six months before the first Twenty20 International match was played between two men's teams. The ICC Women's World Twenty20 was first held in 2009.
In April 2018, the ICC granted full Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between the Netherlands women and another international side after 1 July 2018 will be a full WT20I.
A total of 10 teams currently have Twenty20 International status by virtue of attaining One Day International status. The teams are: In April 2018, ICC announced T20I status for all its 104 members from 1 July 2018.
The following teams have also played T20Is, but currently do not have T20I status, although they may qualify to regain that status in the future.
The ICC do not maintain a separate Twenty20 ranking for the women's game, instead aggregating performance over all three forms of the game into one overall women's teams ranking.
