IND W vs AUS W: BCCI on Friday announced a 16-member squad for the upcoming five-match T20I series against Australia. However, there comes a major blow for India as their star player Pooja Vastrakar has been ruled out of the series due to an unspecified injury. The BCCI confirmed the development while announcing the squad on Friday.
The reason for Sneh Rana’s unavailability was not specified by the board. On the other hand, Yastika Bhatia & Harleen Deol has received a call-up to the National squad after missing the limited-overs series in England & the Asia Cup. Not only Rana but also Kiran Navgire & Dayalan Hemalatha didn’t get a place in the Playing XI. Meanwhile, BCCI handed a national call-up to swashbuckling left-arm pacer Anjali Sarvani who was also the leading wicket-taker in the Inter-State Women’s T20s by scalping 17 wikcets at an average of 5.70 & an economy rate of 3.34.
BCCI has recalled Devika Vaidya to the National team four years after she played her first match for the senior women’s team. Devika had last featured for India back in 2018 when she played an ODI against England while her last T20I appearance came in November 2014. On the other hand, youngsters Harleen Deal & Yashtika Bhatia have received a call-up on the back of their spectacular stint in the recently concluded Women’s T20 Challenger Trophy.
The BCCI has named Simran Bahadur, Arundhati Reddy, Monika Patel & SB Pokharkar as net bowlers for the T20I Series. The anticipated five-match T20I series will begin at DY Patil stadium in Navi Mumbai with the first two games to be played there. While the next three games of the series will be shifted to Brabourne stadium where Australia lifted the 50 overs World Cup in 2013.
