ZIMBABWE Women will host Ireland Women for four One-Day International (ODI) matches in October as the two sides step up their preparations for the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier 2021 in Harare.
The games are scheduled for 5, 7, 9 and 11 October at Harare Sports Club.
This will be the first official ODI series for Zimbabwe Women since they were granted ODI status by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in April this year.
At the weekend, Zimbabwe Women won the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Africa Qualifier tournament, earning the ticket to proceed to the final global qualifying tournament for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup proper.
Attention now turns to 50-over cricket, with Zimbabwe Women already through to the global qualifying event for that format scheduled for November-December in Harare.
The ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier 2021 will decide the remaining three participants for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 in New Zealand.
Zimbabwe Women and Ireland Women are among the 10 teams participating in the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier 2021 and the ODI series between the two sides is expected to boost their readiness for the global qualifying tournament.
