In the spring of 2022, the main cricket event of recent years will take place. This is the Women’s World Cup, which will be hosted by New Zealand.
Undoubtedly, this event will attract hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world, because such an event when you can watch the best cricketers play in one tournament happens not every year, and in the context of a global pandemic, this opportunity is even rarer.
Initially, the championship was supposed to take place in 2021, but due to the same pandemic, it was rescheduled for 2022. The matches will now take place between 4th March to 3rd April 2022.
Which teams will take part in the tournament?

- West Indies
New Zealand received an automatic place in the tournament as the host country. 4 more teams got their places thanks to successful performances at ICC Women’s Championship. They are India, Australia, England, and South Africa.
The fate of 3 more trips to the World Cup was to be decided in the qualifying tournament in 2021, but Covid-19 made its own adjustments. The tournament was canceled and places in the tournament were given to the top 3 ranked teams by ICC ODI Rankings – Pakistan, West Indies, and Bangladesh.
It should be noted that compared to the last championship in 2017, there was only one change in the composition of the participants – the Bangladesh team ousted the Sri Lanka team.
Where and when will the matches take place?
World Cup matches will be held in 6 New Zealand cities:
- Mount Maunganui
The tournament will first feature group stage matches, where each team must face each other. The opening match will take place on March 4. It will bring together New Zealand and West Indies. Bay Oval arena with 10 000 capacity will hold it.
India will play its first match against Pakistan on March, 6. Then it will meet New Zealand on March, 10 and West Indies on March, 12. The group stage matches will end on March, 27 with India vs. South Africa.
The top 4 teams at the end of the group stage will advance to the semi-finals. They will take place on March, 30 and 31. The final will take place on April, 3 at the Hagley Oval arena. 18,000 spectators will be able to watch this magnificent performance from the stands of the stadium.
Who can be considered the favorites of the tournament?
This tournament has a fairly even line-up of participants and everyone can shoot with a good result. However, it is still possible to single out a few favorites.
First, let’s note the current world champion. This is the England team that won the title in 2017 at the home ground.
India also has excellent chances of reaching the final or even winning. This team played in the final of the last championship.
Well, finally, it is worth noting the hosts of the tournament. New Zealand has a great chance to show themselves with the support of its native fans.
