The Indian Women cricket Squad is good to go to contend in its first-since forever day-night test match, a few sources from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have uncovered.
Most prominently, BCCI secretary Jay Shah posted a tweet on Thursday, affirming that the Indian and Australian ladies groups will contend in a pink-ball test match in a little while this year.
“…extremely pleased to announce that Team India (women) will play in their first-ever pink ball day-night test later this year in Australia” tweeted by Jay Shah.
The previously mentioned improvement affirms a case made by a mysterious BCCI source recently that recommended the Indian Cricket Board’s longing to lift the nature of womencricket.
“England and Australia are the two teams that still play (women’s) Tests. Going forward, you will see a Test slotted in when they visit India or when India tour the two countries,” quoted by Official
Indian Women Squad played their last red ball cricket in November 2014
The confirmed Australia day-night test takes the India women group test match count this year from one match to two; a huge improvement over the seven-year time frame from 2014-2020 which didn’t see the group contend in any red-ball global game at all.
The women group’s last authority test-match task traces all the way back to November 2014, against South Africa at the Gangotri Glades Cricket Ground in Mysore. India had dominated that specific match by an innings and 34 runs.

The women in-blue are planned to contend in an red ball test match against England women at the Bristol Cricket Ground from 16-20 June 2021. Mithali Raj, the group’s test skipper, is required to continue her influential position, with Harmanpreet Kaur destined to fill in as her representative. It will be fascinating to check whether youthful, impending abilities like Shefali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, and Priya Punia will actually want to make their red-ball debut in England.
