How to Follow the Series
Commonwealth Bank International Women’s
This series marks a historic step in the progression of women’s cricket globally. As part of the second round of the ICC Women’s Championship, it brings together two teams who have never met outside of ICC events.
The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars have enjoyed a stronghold over the West Indies, with Australia claiming four of the five ODIs and all four WT20 INTLs that the teams have faced off in. However, the competition has intensified in recent years as both sides have enjoyed success at international level. The two teams have met in the semi-finals in the last two ICC Women’s World T20 events and contested the final of the 2013 ICC Women’s World Cup.
The Australian side will be brimming with confidence off the back of their victorious campaign at the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in Bangladesh earlier this year. They also put on a dominant display against Pakistan in Queensland in August, claiming an 8-0 series whitewash. As the current World Cup holders in both the ODI and T20 formats, the Australian side will be determined to prove why they are the number one ranked team in the world. The team will look to captain Meg Lanning to feature prominently at the top of the order in both formats and display the form that has taken her to the top of the rankings in the T20 format.
The West Indies have become a powerhouse team on the international stage in recent years with their athletic and powerful style of play. They recently hosted the New Zealand White Ferns as part of the ICC Women’s Championship and claimed a 4-0 ODI series win but succumbed to their opponents 2-1 in the WT20 INTL series. Stafanie Taylor is expected to feature prominently for the visitors and prove why she is the number one and two ranked all-rounder respectively in ODIs and T20s.
Prior to the ODI series the two teams competed in four WT20 INTL matches, with the Australian side claiming a 4-0 series win.
ICC Women’s Championship
The first three ODIs of this series will form part of the second round of the inaugural ICC Women’s Championship for the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars and the West Indies. The two sides were sitting equal top of the table after they both clean-swept their first round matches.
The Championship has been developed to create a more extensive and meaningful bilateral playing program for cricket. It will see the top eight ranked women’s teams play each other in three ODIs between 2014 and 2016, with points being awarded for each game and the top four sides gaining automatic qualification to the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 in England. The bottom four sides will have a second chance to qualify for the event through the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier 2017, where they will compete with six regional qualifiers for the last four available places in the tournament.
The eight participating teams are ranked as per their finishing positions at the 2013 ICC Women’s World Cup and include Australia, West Indies, England, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, India and Pakistan.
