After hosting ICC Champions Trophy successfully, England are all set to host ICC Women’s World Cup 2017. Before this year's edition, England have hosted the tournament twice — in 1973 and in 1993, and both times they won the title. It will be intriguing to see whether they can repeat history or not.

On the other hand, Australia have won the title six times, and as defending champions, they are overwhelming favourites. The Indian women’s cricket team's recent form is also quite impressive as they have won 27 out of 36 matches since ICC Women’s World Cup 2013.

The South African women's team have won the most number of matches since ICC Women’s World Cup 2013 so it will be tough to neglect them. The tournament will consist of 28 league matches, so any team can make a comeback in the competition at any time.
