Teams at this year's ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 (WCWC) will be allowed to play with as less as 9 members if their squad is affected by the COVID-19, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced on February 24.

"If it becomes necessary, we would allow a team to field nine players as an exception for this environment and if they had female substitutes from within their management team, we would enable two substitutes to play, non-batting, non-bowling, but to enable a game to take place", said ICC Head of Events Chris Tetley at a media interaction in Christchurch.

The Women's World Cup will be played between March 4 and April 3 in New Zealand. The organization has taken other measures as well to ensure the tournament can continue as normally as possible.

Teams are allowed to bring additional travelling reserves so that players can be replaced on a temporary basis if the need arises due to any player contracting COVID-19.
