Indian women’s ‘A’ team to tour Australia in December for a historic series

Highlights

  • India Women's 'A' team will tour Australia in December
  • This is the first instance of such a tour
  • They will play 3 ODIs and 3 T20s

Indian women’s ‘A’ team will create history as they travel to Australia for a bilateral series in December. This will be the very first instance of Australia hosting Indian women’s ‘A’ team. Cricket Australia confirmed that the tour will consist of three ODIs and three T20s.

This tour is a part of an agreement between BCCI and CA. Both the Cricketing bodies have agreed to host annual ‘A’ series. India hosted the first series last year in October when Australia women’s ‘A’ faced India ‘A’ in Mumbai.

During their planned tour, Indian women will play all three ODIs at Brisbane, starting from 12th December. The T20 series will start on 19th December and all three games will be played at the Gold Coast.

“Hosting the first A tour for our female cricketers is another important step in the evolution of the National Talent Pathway,” said Shawn Flegler, Australia’s Female High-Performance Manager.

“A lot of work has gone into the women’s pathway and we’ve already seen numerous players come through the system and show they are capable to taking the next step to international level.”

“We now have annual tours for our Australia Under 19 team, the Women’s National Performance Squad is in its third year and now being able to schedule regular Australia A tours, both at home and away is the icing on the cake.”

Cricket Australia also confirmed the England tour for ‘A’ team, which will be played alongside the women’s Ashes.

Both BCCI and CA are constantly working to improve women’s cricket around the globe. Cricket Australia has already hosted four editions of Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL), a T20 League. BCCI has also hosted two editions of Women T20 Challenge so far and is planning to start a full-fledged tournament from the next year.

I might be a Mechanical Engineer on the paper, but I was a Sports enthusiast since childhood, screaming at the TV watching cricket at the age of 4. Not much excites me other than sports unless it's free pizza. I can watch literally anything remotely related to sports; Cricket, Football, Tennis, F1, Hockey, Athletics, Chess, you name it! And I love to write too, so at the time I'm not watching sports, I'm writing about it. Or eating pizzas, of course.
