The Botswana women's national cricket team represents the country of Botswana in women's cricket matches. The team is currently coached by Karabo Motlhanka.[4]

In April 2018, the International Cricket Council (ICC) granted full Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Botswana women and another international side since 1 July 2018 have the full WT20I status.[5]

Botswana's first WT20I matches were contested as part of the Botswana 7s tournament in August 2018 against Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Sierra Leone and Zambia (Zambia's matches were not classified as WT20Is as they had a Botswanan player in their squad).[6] Botswana finished third on the table with three wins and two losses[7] and won the third place play off against Mozambique by a margin of nine wickets.[8]

In December 2020, the ICC announced the qualification pathway for the 2023 ICC Women's T20 World Cup.[9] The Botswana women's team are scheduled to make their debut at an ICC women's event when they play in the 2021 ICC Women's T20 World Cup Africa Qualifier group.[10]
