At the 2016 tournament, Australia finished as runner-ups to the West Indies so will be looking to go one better at the event later this year.

Australian captain Meg Lanning said the recent win in the T20I series against India and England had been an integral part of the sides lead up to the tournament in November.  

"We knew it was a very important series for us and it was about establishing the way we want to play," she said.

"I think we saw throughout the one-day series as well that the style of play was there, so it is irrelevant what format we play.

"We want to play the same way and we want to make sure we push the game forward all the time," Lanning said.

It was a successful tri-series for Australia but Lanning said the team are wanting and needing to continue improving.

The Southern Stars don't have their next international series until September but before then they will have a break.

"That is going to be the driving force going into the winter and whatever games we do get to play we want to try nail that down as best we can," she said.

"This is a good starting point but we know we are going to have to keep improving and hopefully by the time we get to the World Cup, we are in a really good spot."
