Australian women's cricket team in the West Indies in 2019–20

The Australia women's cricket team played the West Indies women's cricket team in September 2019. The tour consisted of three Women's One Day Internationals (WODIs), which formed part of the 2017–20 ICC Women's Championship, and three Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) matches.[1][2] The first fixture of the tour, at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua, was the Australia's first ever WODI match in the Caribbean.[3] Australia won the WODI series 3–0,[4] their fifth-consecutive series sweep and their fifteenth win in WODIs in a row.[5] As a result, they became the first team to qualify for the 2021 Women's Cricket World Cup.[6] Australia also won the WT20I series 3–0.[7]
