They have also excelled in the 50-overs format, reaching the final of the 2013 World Cup and also finishing fourth in the ICC Championship a year ago to be one of four teams to earn automatic qualification for the pending tournament.

The winners of this year's International Cricket Council (ICC) Women's World Cup will receive a record total of $660,000 (£518,000/€592,000), the governing body has announced after they unveiled the prize structure for the tournament.

The ICC Women's World Cup 2017 will feature defending champions Australia, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies.

The losing finalists will walk away with a handy $330 000, with the losing semi-finalists each pocketing $165 000.

Teams that exit the eight-nation World Cup at the group stage will be given $30,000 (£24,000/€27,000) and countries will secure $20,000 (£16,000/€18,000) for each win in the group stage. India will begin their crusade in the tournament against England at County Ground, Derby on the same day.

The first match of the Women's World Cup will be held between New Zealand and Sri Lanka in Bristol on 24 June.

Warm-up matches began today as England beat Sri Lanka by eight wickets at Queen's Park in Chesterfield.
