The Zimbabwe women's national cricket team represents Zimbabwe in international women's cricket. The team is organised by Zimbabwe Cricket, a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Zimbabwe's women team made its international debut in 2006, at the ICC Africa regional qualifier for the Women's Cricket World Cup.[6] By winning that tournament, the team qualified for the 2008 World Cup Qualifier, eventually placing fifth out of eight teams by defeating Scotland in a play-off. However, at the 2011 World Cup Qualifier, Zimbabwe had much less success, failing to win a single match.[7] At the 2013 World Twenty20 Qualifier, the team placed sixth out of eight teams, while at the 2015 edition the team placed third, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the 2016 World Twenty20.[8]

In December 2018, Mary-Anne Musonda was appointed the captain of the team, replacing Chipo Mugeri.[9][10]

In December 2020, the ICC announced the qualification pathway for the 2023 ICC Women's T20 World Cup.[11] Zimbabwe were named in the 2021 ICC Women's T20 World Cup Africa Qualifier regional group, alongside ten other teams.[12]

In April 2021, the ICC awarded permanent Test and One Day International (ODI) status to all full member women's teams.[13]
