Lord’s To Host Women’s World Cup Final In 2017

The hallowed Lord’s will host the final of the Women’s Cricket World Cup in 2017, the ICC has announced. Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Somerset and Lord’s in London will host the matches from June 26 to July 23.

The 28-day tournament will feature 31 games. Eight teams will participate in a single-league format with each side playing the other once. The top four sides from the league stage will qualify to the semi finals, the winners of which will play in the final at Lord’s on July 23. 

The top four sides from the ongoing ICC Women’s Championship will qualify for the event, while the remainder will be decided by a ten-team qualification tournament in early 2017.

It will be the first time the tournament will be held in England since 1993 when the home side beat New Zealand in the final at Lord’s.
“The launch of the new Women’s Cricket Super League here later this year will give the women’s game another significant fillip and help set the stage for what promises to be a fantastic showcase for our sport next summer.”

Steve Elworthy, ECB’s Director of Events said: “This is a very exciting time for the women’s game in this country and staging a Women’s World Cup here will really help drive interest and participation in women’s cricket at every level.
