Who will win the Women's ODI World Cup?

Women's ODI cricket history

Australia have been the dominant force in women's cricket over the last 5 years, but this is 1 trophy they don't currently hold. With star power right through their ranks they will certainly be the team to beat.

Led by Meg Lanning, Alyssa Healy, Elyse Perry, Ash Gardner, Beth Mooney and a host of others, the team that wins this tournament will have to go through Australia to do it.

India have been one of the game's emerging forces in recent years so they are one to watch, while New Zealand's blistering lead-up form puts them right in the mix as the host nation.
