Competitive cricket has been played by women since the mid-eighteenth century. While there were many local and regional clubs promoting the sport, it became organised only after the setting up of the Women's Cricket Association (England) in 1926 and other similar associations in Australia and New Zealand. The first international game played by women was a Test match between England and Australia in 1935. The International Women's Cricket Council was formed in 1958 to coordinate cricket among all interested countries.[1]

A Women's Twenty20 International (T20I) 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.[2] The first Twenty20 International match was held in August 2004 between England and New Zealand,[3] six months before the first Twenty20 International match was played between two men's teams.[4]

A century is a score of hundred or more runs by a batsman in one innings.[5] This list includes all players who have scored a century in women's Twenty20 Internationals and is arranged chronologically. As of February 2016, three cricketers have scored centuries.[6]
