The Indian Women cricket team is all set to visit Australia for a bilateral series which is to be convened in the coming September. India will likely try and make the most from this series before they head over for Commonwealth glory in 2022.
This tour was originally slated to be in January, 2021. However, it was postponed in December 2020 and the new dates were kept on hold.
It was supposed to comprise three ODI’s initially. However, given the change of schedule, it has been said that the tour would also encompass three T-20’s.
The communique is still to arrive about this bilateral affair, however, in a sports podcast, Australian express bowler, Megan Schutt was heard saying that her next assignment was against India.
On a podcast called “No Balls: The Cricket Podcast” hosted by Kate Cross and Alex Hartley, Schutt mentioned, “We have got a tour against India in mid-September. So, there’s a couple of camps. I believe we are doing one in Darwin, which will be really cool… and then the tour against India. And then pretty much from there things get crazy with Big Bash, WNCL, Ashes, World Cup, and hopefully the Commonwealth Games.”
Though the clarity is still to be published, it is hoped that Cricket Australia will be making the announcement shortly.
Indian Women Team’s forthcoming assignments
Indian Women will be touring England for another bilateral affair that will commence with an one-off Test match in Bristol.
The tour will see three ODI’s and three T20’s being played before the curtain is drawn on 15th July.
Five Indian players that include the likes of Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma and Shafali Verma will most likely be staying back post the series to be a part of the maiden edition of Hundred which will happen between July 21st and August 21st.
A couple of Indian players including Radha Yadav and Shafali Verma will also be a part of the WBBL which will be played in its normal October-November window.
