The ICC Women's Championship - Stats & Records

Qualification for the 2017 World Cup was decided via the ICC Women's Championship - a round-robin series between the world's top eight ranked sides, played over the two-and-a-half years preceding the tournament.

Each team played three ODIs against every other team, either at home or away, with the top four sides qualifying directly for the World Cup, and the bottom four going into a qualifying tournament with the lower-ranked sides.

Australia, England, New Zealand and the West Indies qualified directly; whilst India, South Africa, Pakistan and Sri Lanka qualified via the qualifying tournament.
