West Indies Women have completed their preparation for the ICC Women ‘s World Cup Qualifier 2021 to be held in Zimbabwe from Nov. 21 to Dec. 5.
The 10-team tournament decides three qualifiers for the Women’s World Cup to be held in New Zealand from March 4 to April 3, 2022.
The three qualifiers will join the five teams — Australia, England, India, South Africa and hosts New Zealand- who have already qualified through the ICC Women’s Championship.
The three qualifiers as well as the next two teams will also secure places in the next ICC Women’s Championship as the number of teams in the third cycle of the Women’s Championship goes from eight to 10 teams.
West Indies are among the ten teams that will compete in the qualifiers.
Head coach Courtney Walsh said the recent 4-1 loss to South Africa women would have given them additional insights in terms of what they need to do to be ready for the big event.
Walsh said the team has been building towards the qualifiers despite losing the recent series.
