India qualified for the 2021 Women's World Cup after the series points were split evenly between Pakistan and India.
The series between Pakistan and India was part of the ICC Women's Championship, but India refused to play the series, saying that because of strained relations with Pakistan, they were not allowed to host Pakistan from their government.
The ICC considered the matter as extraordinary, splitting the series points between the two teams, which Pakistan expressed with great surprise, as the series was canceled by India.
In addition, due to the Coronavirus, South Africa and Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand women's teams could not be series and their points were evenly distributed among the teams.
After the ICC decision, India qualified for the 2021 Women's World Cup, where they are fourth with 23 points.
In addition, Australia has 37 points, England with 29 points and South Africa with 25 points, as well as host New Zealand.
Due to the strained relations between Pakistan and India, no bilateral series has been played between the two traditional rivals since 13-2012 and both teams are now competing against each other only at ICC World Cup events or other events.
