The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced a new rule prior to the 2022 Women's ODI World Cup in New Zealand, which is less than a year away. The ICC has decided that all tied matches will be decided by a Super Over. Apart from that, another change added to the playing condition is the five-over powerplay.

Meanwhile, the inaugural Under-19 women's World Cup that was due to be staged in Bangladesh later this year has been postponed to January 2023.

"Covid-19 has had a significant impact on the establishment and subsequent development of the U19 programmes in many countries and teams would not be able prepare appropriately for a global event later this year," the ICC stated in a media release.

At the beginning of the year, Bangladesh started preparations for this World Cup. The BCB Women's Wing has started the process of selecting talented cricketers through departmental coaches across the country. The game development department is also collaborating with them. But as the tournament is postponed, they are getting more time to organize the team.

However, the global qualifier for the 2022 Women's World Cup, has also been postponed and will now be played in December 2021. The ICC board has also decided that Test and ODI status will be given to all Full Member women's teams as well.
