The All-India Women’s Selection Committee announced the Indian squad for the upcoming series against Australia. The tour includes three ODIs and the series will be played from 12th to 18th March at the Reliance Stadium, Vadodara. 

 

The three ODIs will be a part of the ICC Women’s Championship (2017-2020). Veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami is not included the squad as she is currently undergoing a rehabilitation programme after sustaining a heel injury during the tour of South Africa.

She was also a part of the World Cup Qualifiers; which were held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, in February 2016 but got replaced by Mansi Joshi owing to an injury.

Mithali Raj will continue to lead the team with Harmanpreet Kaur as her deputy.
