Revised Women's World Cup Schedule Revealed
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed the revised full schedule for the Women's World Cup, which gets underway in India on Thursday 31st January.
Cuttack and Mumbai are the two host cities and the stadia which will be used in both venues have now been confirmed.
There had initially been a delay as organisers were forced to react to potential protests and disruptions in Mumbai should the Pakistan team be allowed to play there.

"I am grateful for all the support ICC has received from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) during a difficult situation, which was not of cricket’s making. We are also indebted to the Odisha Cricket Association for making excellent grounds available at such short notice," ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said.
"We also wish to thank the competing teams and Member Boards for their co-operation in allowing both the ICC and BCCI the opportunity to explore the complicated logistics so that we can ensure that this event takes place on the dates scheduled in India," he added.

Super Six Stage
Provided they qualify, each of the top three teams will retain its ranking from the group stage through to the Super Sixes, regardless of their finishing position in the group. For example, England will be ranked A1 whether they finish first, second or third at the end of the group stage. If the fourth ranked team in a group qualifies for the Super Six stage, they will adopt the ranking of the team that they have replaced. For example if Sri Lanka qualifies at the expense of England, Sri Lanka would follow the fixtures for A1 in the Super Six stage.
