The 2022 ICC Women's Cricket World Cup will be the twelfth edition of the Women's Cricket World Cup and is scheduled to be held in New Zealand in March and April 2022.[1][2] It was originally scheduled for 6 February to 7 March 2021 but was postponed by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3][4] On 15 December 2020, the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed that the tournament will take place from 4 March to 3 April 2022.[5]

New Zealand qualified automatically as hosts, with all other qualification places determined by the ICC ODI Rankings. Originally, it was announced that three more teams would qualify from the 2017–20 ICC Women's Championship,[6] but in 2018 this was changed to four teams plus the hosts.[7] It was intended that the remaining three places would be determined through the 2021 Women's Cricket World Cup Qualifier,[8] which was postponed from 2020.[9][10] However, the tournament was cancelled midway through and the remaining places allocated based on ODI rankings.[11]

Qualification[edit]

On 27 November 2021, the ICC announced that the 2021 Women's Cricket World Cup Qualifier had been called off due to concerns of a new COVID variant and travel restrictions.[12] Per the ICC's playing conditions, the three remaining qualification slots were based on the team's rankings, therefore Bangladesh, Pakistan and the West Indies progressed to the 2022 Women's Cricket World Cup.[13]

This format was last used in the 2017 tournament.[22] The top four sides following the conclusion of the league matches will progress to the semi-finals with the winners meeting in the final.[23] Therefore, a total of 31 matches will be played during the 29-day tournament.[24] In December 2020 the ICC announced the full match schedule for the tournament.[5][25]
