We’re fast approaching the eleventh edition of the Women’s World Cup and have decided to look at how all eight teams have fared at previous tournaments.

Entering their fourth Women’s World Cup, Pakistan has made six changes to the squad that played in the ICC Women's World Cup Qualifiers.

Sidra Nawaz, the wicket-keeper, has returned to the squad after injury forced her withdrawal from the Qualifiers.

Asmavia Iqbal, Diana Baig, Marina Iqbal, Kainat Imtiaz and Waheeda Akhtar have also been included in the 15-player squad.

With a new head coach, Sabih Azhar, also taking the lead, Pakistan will begin their ICC Women’s World Cup campaign on June 25 against South Africa in Leicester.
