Ōtautahi Christchurch will host five matches at Hagley Oval at the tail end of the tournament, including at least one White Ferns match, the semi-final and the final – the majority being played under the new Hagely Oval lights as a day/night match.
The semi-final will be held on 31 March, the final on 3 April.
The 100 days announcement was marked with the unveiling of the official countdown timer at Christchurch International Airport, now ticking its way towards the first ball of the tournament.
In attendance were cricketing legend Sir Richard Hadlee and current White Ferns vice-captain Amy Satterthwaite.
ChristchurchNZ also worked together with local iwi, Sir Richard Hadlee, former White Fern and World Cup winner Debbie Hockley, and a group of enthusiastic cricketing kids to produce a dynamic promotional video, showcasing the natural environment that surrounds Ōtautahi Christchurch, as well as Hagley Oval.
Andrea Nelson, ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup CEO, said the 100 Days To Go milestone “means the countdown really is on until we welcome the world’s best women cricketers to New Zealand to showcase their skills to the world”.
