ICC Hints at 9-Player Cricket Team for Women's ODI World Cup 2022

 - Sakshi Post

The Women's World Cup 2022 will be held in New Zealand from March 4 to April 3. The first match is between New Zealand and West Indies at Mount Maunganui.

The ICC is scheduling everything perfectly to run the World Cup matches smoothly. If COVID-19 cases arise in the teams, the ICC intends to play the matches with nine players in a team rather than postponing or cancelling them.

The International Cricket Council head of events, Chris Tetley, quoted saying to ESPNcricinfo that "As an exception for this scenario, we would allow a team to field nine players if required. And if their management staff had substitutes, we would let two substitutes play – non-batting and non-bowling – to allow a game to go on, Tetley stated.
