The ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2021 will begin in Zimbabwe on Sunday, 21 November, with three places up for grabs for the 2022 World Cup event.

Subcontinental rivals, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and European competitors Ireland and Netherlands face off in the opening day’s action. Hosts Zimbabwe play Thailand, while West Indies take on PNG in the other two matches of the day. 

Sri Lanka play their first fixture against the Netherlands, while USA feature against Bangladesh among the matches on day two.

In all, four venues will be used for the group stage, with four matches held daily. 

The Super Six stage begins 1 December 2021. The ten teams play the group stages in two groups of five each. These are:

Group A:
West Indies
Sri Lanka
Ireland
Papua New Guinea
Netherlands

Group B:

The top three teams from each group go to the Super 6 stage, with group stage points carrying over to the next phase.

The top five will also qualify for the next edition of the ICC Women’s Championship, which is expanding from eight teams to 10.
