The 2022 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup is going to be held from March 4 to April 3 at different venues in New Zealand. The tournament was basically scheduled in 2022 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 situation. Here you will know everything about the tournament.

With the first edition of the competition in five years, the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup has arrived. England is the current World Cup champion, having won on home soil in 2017. In a nail-biting final at Lord’s, they overcame India by seven runs.

Time has passed, the world has changed, and the enthusiasm is only expected to grow as the women’s game’s reputation grows. The competition is being hosted in New Zealand this year, although Oceanic rivals Australia are heavily favored to win their seventh title.

In 11 editions, only three teams have ever won the Women’s Cricket World Cup. India appears to have the best chance of breaking into the elite group, but Australia, New Zealand, and England are expected to be dangerous opponents once more.

What is the ICC Women’s World Cup Tournament?

The ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup is a 50-over tournament held every four years that first took place in 1973.

England hosted and won that inaugural edition just as they did in 2017 after an Anya Shrubsole-inspired display saw them defeat India by nine runs at Lord’s.

They are joined in the round-robin group stage by hosts New Zealand, India, Australia, South Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and the West Indies, who will all play each other once, before the top four advances to the semi-finals and final to crown a winner.

Australia are the competition’s most successful team, having won six of the 11 Women’s World Cups contested so far.

The Aussies have now won 29 of their last 30 ODIs, with three of these victories being racked up during last month’s Ashes series, where they thrashed England 12-4.

Their sole loss in this period came at home to India last September, which was a result that ended their world-record winning sequence in 50-over cricket at 26.

Today, we will know when, where, and how to watch the tournament along with the full schedules and rosters here.

ICC Women’s World Cup Schedule 2022:

The tournament will be played in a round-robin format. All 8 teams will face each other once during the tournament. The top four teams in the points table after the league stage will lock horns in the semi-final.

The winners of the semi-final will collide in the final.
