World Cup Warm-Up Games




World Cup Initial Schedule : Who plays where released on March 8th



Based on the above schedule here's what a correspondent of mine has suggested


It is hard to get a really good schedule but the attached is quite interesting for the following reasons:-

  • All teams have at least a 3 day gap between matches (boy, does this not restrict the options!!), play day, spare, travel.

  • England v Australia is on a weekend

  • England v NZ is on a weekend

  • Every ground has at least 3 matches involving one of England or Australia

  • India and Pakistan each play 3 matches in Leicester (including against each other) – good idea from local supporters point of view

  • Both Eng v Ind and Eng v Pak is in Leicester – again good idea from local supporters point of view

  • Every match at Taunton (who don't get a semi) involves either Eng, Aus, NZ, Ind or WI and they get Eng v NZ and Aus v NZ

  • England matches are as evenly spread as possible with only Bristol (but they get Australia 3 times and a semi-final) having England once, others get them twice.

· No team plays at any ground more than 3 times

· Every team play at every ground at least once

Every host ground in this summer’s ICC Women’s World Cup will stage an England match within the schedule announced today by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and International Cricket Council (ICC).
England will launch their home World Cup campaign against India in Derby on 24th June. Heather Knight’s side then visit Leicester to face Pakistan and Taunton to play Sri Lanka. They then head to Bristol to take on South Africa prior to facing off against rivals Australia on 9th July.
England travel to Derby next to take on New Zealand on 12th July before finishing their round-robin fixtures against World T20 champions the West Indies on 15th July in Bristol.
England Captain Heather Knight said:
“We are incredibly excited to get the chance to play in front of home crowds at every World Cup ground. Our fans are the best in the world and we can’t wait to get out there and perform in front of them. Hopefully the next generation of England cricketers will also be there watching us.
“Playing in a home World Cup is the pinnacle tournament for all of us. The team is feeling confident after an exciting 2016 and we can’t wait to get started.”
England Women’s Head Coach, Mark Robinson, said:
“We are delighted to be able to play at all four of the World Cup venues throughout this tournament and I hope that our cricket-loving public come out in full force to support us up and down the country.
“There is no greater dream for our players than to play for their country in a home World Cup. Ultimately our collective goal is to be at Lord’s in the Home dressing room on 23rd July in the Final, and we are preparing hard to earn that privilege.”
