India are placed alongside New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and defending champions Australia in Group A. If India ends up among the top two teams in Group A after the league stage, Harmanpreet Kaur and co. will qualify for the semi-final knockout stage to be played on March 5. India are yet to win the coveted title, with their best results being semi-final exits from the 2009, 2010 and 2018 editions. Meanwhile, tournament-favourites and India’s first opposition Australia have claimed the title four times, including their win in the previous tournament.
