IND W vs AUS W: The Indian women’s team is all set to host World Champions Australia for a five-match T20I series in December. Cricket Australia had announced the dates and location for the series along with its men’s and women’s season schedules. However, details are yet to be fully finalized.
The Indian women’s team who had last played the ODI World Cup in March will next compete in the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in July followed by a white-ball series in England in September comprising three ODIs and as many T20Is.
“It is the start of an exciting eight months for the team that also includes a tour to India, home series against Pakistan, the opportunity to play in the Hundred, and our own extended domestic season, before the T20 World Cup,” Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley said.
In the month of September, the Australian men’s team will visit India for a three-match T20 series. Though the actual dates are yet to be finalized, it will mostly be in the second half of September. This is because Australia is hosting New Zealand for an ODI series from 6th September to 11th September. The series will be a warm-up for both the teams for the T20 World Cup, which will be hosted in Australia from 17th October to 14th November.
Australia’s men’s and women’s T20 squads are the current world champions. Aaron Finch and his team won the trophy last year and will be looking to keep it with themselves. The women’s team was declared champions in the year 2020 after defeating India in the finals.
The next task for the Indian men’s team is a five-match T20 series against South Africa at home from June 9 to 19, followed by a two-match T20I series against Ireland. The Indian team will then tour England for one-off test & white ball series commencing from 1st July.
Their England tour will begin with the rescheduled fifth test on July 1. Prior to the one-off test, India will also play a four-day warm-up match with County Select XI from June 24. After the completion of the one-off Test, the England team will play Three T20Is & three ODIs from July 7 to July 17.
