Pakistan will take on West Indies in Dubai in the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series. The ODI series is part of the ICC Women’s Championship, which will decide the direct qualifiers for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup to be held in New Zealand in 2021. Windies and Pakistan are placed neck and neck on the ICC Women's Championship points table. Windies have nine points and are placed fifth while Pakistan have eight points and occupy the sixth spot.

Both these teams have thus far played nine matches and the three-match ODI Series will be crucial for their qualification for the 2021 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup. New Zealand and four other top teams will get direct entry in the World Cup. Australia currently leads the standings followed by New Zealand, India, and England at the second, third and fourth spot.
Interestingly, bottom-placed South Africa and Sri Lanka will face-off during the same time in three-match ODI series. Meanwhile, Pakistan captain Bismah Maroof has said that playing against Windies in Dubai will be a challenge despite it being a home ground. “This championship is vital, as it determines and affects our future settings and qualification in the World Cup. So, hopefully, this series will better our position on the points table. I don't think we have an edge over them with respect to venue. We have played in Sharjah, not in Dubai. The field conditions vary quite a lot. So playing in Dubai in new conditions will be a challenge as well,” Bismah was quoted as saying in an ICC press release.
“If we manage to put enough runs on the board, good pressure can be put with our bowling as it had been quite effective in curtailing them in previous matches. Both formats are quite different but from the T20s we got a lot of encouragement psychologically because we could have won the series had we not stretched one game to the Super Over. So, that scenario elevated our morale and will be really helpful in the ODIs,” she added. Smriti Mandhana Becomes No 1 ODI Batswoman As per Latest ICC Rankings.
