The ICC Women's Championship Technical Committee (TC) has decided that teams will share points in all three series in the Women's Championship that did not take place during the competition window.

With respect to the India v Pakistan series, the series could not be played because of a Force Majeure event after the BCCI demonstrated that it was unable to obtain the necessary government clearances to allow India to participate in the bilateral series against Pakistan, which forms a part of the ICC Women's Championship.

Meanwhile, two other Women's Championship series have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Proteas women were set to host Australia, with the series set to start at the end of last month, and Sri Lanka were to host New Zealand in the last round of matches.

The India-Pakistan series was originally scheduled in the sixth round of the competition, between July and November 2019, but despite the best efforts of both the boards, it was unable to take place.

All eight teams in the 2017-2020 edition of the ICC Women's Championship play each other in a three-match series.

The host of the Women's World Cup 2021, New Zealand, and the next four highest-placed teams on the points table qualify directly for one-day international cricket’s pinnacle event.

Australia (37 points), England (29), South Africa (25) and now India (23) have already qualified by virtue of being the top four.

Pakistan (19), New Zealand (17), West Indies (13) and Sri Lanka (5) complete the table.

The Women's World Cup Qualifier is scheduled to be played from 3-19 July in Sri Lanka, this is subject to review due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 10 teams vying for the three remaining places in the Women's World Cup 2021 will be the hosts, Sri Lanka, along with Pakistan and West Indies from the ICC Women's Championship, the two other teams with ODI status, Bangladesh and Ireland, and the winners of the five regional qualifiers - Thailand (Asia), Zimbabwe (Africa), Papua New Guinea (East Asia Pacific), United States of America (Americas) and Netherlands (Europe).
