The 2014–16 ICC Women's Championship was the first edition of the ICC Women's Championship, a women's One Day International cricket (WODI) competition contested by eight teams. The top four teams at the conclusion of the tournament (Australia, England, New Zealand and West Indies) gained automatically qualification for the 2017 World Cup. The bottom four teams (India, South Africa, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) faced six qualifying teams in the 2017 World Cup Qualifier for the remaining four places at the World Cup.[1][2] When four or more WODIs were played in a series, only three pre-selected matches were included in the championship.[3] The second edition of the competition started in October 2017.[4]

Note: The round six fixtures between Pakistan and India should have taken place by the end of October 2016.[6] As of 9 November 2016, no decision was reached regarding the fixtures going ahead or not.[7] On 23 November 2016 the ICC Technical Committee ruled that India's Women's team had forfeited all of the matches, with the points being awarded to Pakistan.[8] Pakistan were awarded two points for each game, with India considered to have scored 0 runs in the 50 overs of each game, with their net run rate adjusted to reflect this.[9]
