After a promising show against England in England – drawing the only test match and winning an ODI and T20I each – the Indian women’s cricket team prepare for a tougher test against Australia as they play three ODIs , three T20Is and a Test down under.
With Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning by their side, the Australian team are one of the strongest teams in women’s cricket and at home they present an even more powerful challenge. But with most of their hitters coming off a good outing in The Hundred, the Indian team will be confident of a good performance in Australia.
While the team would be without vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur, Jemimah Rodrigues might have an opportunity and she would look to capitalize on her formidable form with the bat in The Hundred for the Northern Superchargers.
The tour begins with the three-game ODI series, two days after the scheduled start as the series was scheduled to take place in Melbourne and Sydney but with lockdown and quarantine regulations in Australia, the whole series was shit in Queensland.
Here are all the details of the visit:
Sep 21 – ODI 1 – 5:35 am IST
Sep 24 – 2nd ODI – 8:45 am IST (D / N)
Sep 26 – 3rd ODI – 5:35 am IST
All three matches will take place at the Great Barrier Reef Arena (Harrup Park), Mackay
