2022 Women’s Cricket World Cup: Schedule for Warm-Up Matches 

The 8 strongest teams of women’s cricket have assembled in New Zealand for the 2022 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup. The race to be crowned as the World Champions begins on March 4 but adhering to the managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) policy by the New Zealand government due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 6 teams that have reached the country lately would have to complete 10 days of mandatory quarantine before resuming training. It is to be noted that team India has already completed the quarantine as they arrived way before others because of their scheduled bilateral series against the White Ferns before the two teams head to the World Cup.

After ending their mandatory quarantine, the teams will gather to give some final touches to their preparation and would further be playing 2 Warm-Up matches each between February 27 to March 2. While the defending champions would play against Bangladesh and South Africa in the Warm-Up, the 2017 World Cup runners-up India would also be playing South Africa followed by West Indies. Australia, who comes after comfortably retaining the Ashes, has West Indies and the host, New Zealand as their Warm-Up opponents with New Zealand playing Pakistan in the warm-up before the Aussies and Pakistan take on Bangladesh in the last warm-up match.
