The previous edition of the ICC Women’s ODI World Cup took place in the year 2022 and it was hosted by New Zealand. The Australian women’s team led by skipper Meg Lanning were crowned as the champions of the ICC Women’s ODI World Cup 2022 as they defeated England by 71 runs in the final. Australia, West Indies, England, and South Africa were the four sides qualifying for the knockout stages in the previous edition of the tournament.

The upcoming edition of the ICC Women’s ODI World Cup is all set to be held in the year 2025 and will be hosted by India. The last time around, the qualifying teams were decided based on the top four teams in the ICC Women’s ODI Championship directly booking a spot in the World Cup while the rest of the teams would have to play the World Cup Qualifiers and earn a spot in the World Cup. However, this time around, the top five teams in the ICC Women’s ODI Championship points table and the hosts India directly qualify for the upcoming edition of the Women’s ODI World Cup. The rest of the two teams will join the bottom four ranked teams in the ICC ODI Rankings.

As per the current standings in the ICC Women’s ODI Championship, Australia are at the top of the points table with 28 points from 18 games, including 13 victories and three defeats, so far.
