The experienced Mithali Raj has retained the captainship of the ODI side after she was axed in the semi-finals of the T20I World Cup against England in West Indies in November this year.

Raj and the T20I captain Kaur were at loggerheads over the extension of Romesh Powar as the head coach. But, finally, the BCCI ended his term and has appointed W.V.Raman as the head coach of the team.
