West Indies & Australia Top Women's International Championship

With the first round of matches now completed, it's West Indies and Australia leading the way in the Women's International Championship.

It's early days, of course, but it is already looking like the really interesting battle will be for the final, 4th place, World Cup qualifying slot.

The second round begins next month, with West Indies travelling to Australia, which should be an exciting series.

England meanwhile head to New Zealand after Christmas. Home advantage can be a big factor in women's cricket, as it is in "The Other Game" - West Indies whitewashed New Zealand at home; but just six months ago, the boot was on the other foot as they lost 0-3 in New Zealand. So New Zealand will be hoping to get some points on the board against England, and I think that series will be competitive too.

In the other round two match-ups, Pakistan face Sri Lanka at home; and South Africa travel to India.
