The Indian women then face another qualifier at the same venue on March 12 before facing England in Tauranga.

Wellington and Christchurch will host the semi-finals on March 30 and 31 respectively while Christchurch will also host the final on April 3.

The tournament was postponed from it’s original window of February to March 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The qualifiers will be decided later in a qualifying event.

“We have all been through a very difficult year and are happy to be getting back at playing the game we all love,” said Mithali Raj, India captain.

“India has been doing very well at ICC tournaments in the past three or four years, whether you talk about the (ODI) World Cup or the recently concluded T20 World Cup, and if we manage to win the tournament in 2022, it will be a massive inspiration for the next generation of girls, as the fifty-over format, is considered the pinnacle for any cricketer. I can assure you the team and I are looking forward to it.”
