The prestigious global event is scheduled to be held across six venues in New Zealand from 4 March to 3 April.

The increased prize money will also see the runners-up awarded a sum of U$600,000, which will be U$270,000 more than what India were rewarded at the 2017 ICC Women’s World Cup final at Lord’s.

The two losing semi-finalists will each earn an amount of U$300,000, while the four teams exiting at group stages will be rewarded an amount of U$70,000.

Every group stage win will result in an amount of U$270,000 per victory for the team.

In the 2022, a total of 28 group stage matches will be played in a round-robin format, with each team playing each other once.

The four teams with the most points will the advance to the semi-finals. A victory will result in two points while a draw, tie or no results will see teams walk away with a single point.

The opening match between hosts New Zealand and West Indies will take place at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui and the final will be played at Hagley Oval in Christchurch,  on 3 April.
