IND W vs AUS W 2022: India is all set to host Australia for five-match T20I series in December 2022. The series will begin on December 9 & all the five T20Is will be played in Mumbai. DY Patil Stadium will host the first two matches while Brabourne Stadium will host the last three T20Is. The series will act as a preparatory ground for both teams ahead of the Women’s T20 World Cup in 2023 February.
Australia would be without the services of their captain Meg Lanning who has taken an indefinite mental health break after their CWG 2022 title win which is the last time when Australia Women had locked horns with India Women. Meanwhile, Rachael Haynes had earlier announced retirement from crciket & Alyssa Healy was appointed as vice-captain. With no update on the return of Lanning, vice-captain Healy might take over the reins of captaincy for this tour.
The Australian players would be brimming with confidence as they would march into this series on the back of WBBL’s experience which will conclude on November 26. Some Indian players such as Pooja Vastrakar & Jemimah Rodrigues are a part of WBBL while Harmanpreet Kaur & Smriti Mandhana pulled out of the tournament in order to manage their increasing workload.
The series will mark the beginning of India’s International schedule as this will be their first international fixture after their victory against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 in October where they won their seventh consecutive title. India is slated to tour South Africa in the second half of January for a tri-series involving West Indies. Both these series will act as India’s build-up for the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. The last time when Australia toured India for a limited overs series was in 2018 when they white-washed India by 3-0 in ODis.
