India women's cricket team to play Test against England, in Australia
After their first Test in England seven years ago, India will play another Test facing England during their tour of Australia. Further, they'll play ODIs and T20Is in Australia.
In the Australia tour next month, India women's cricket team is expected to hit a hat-trick against England. After their first Test in England seven years ago, India will play another Test facing England during their tour of Australia. Further, they'll play ODIs and T20Is in Australia.
Notably, India last played Australia in a Test match in 2006.
"England and Australia are the two teams that still play Tests," a BCCI official told a news agency on Tuesday. "In the future, you will see a Test slotted in when they visit India or when India tours the two nations."
"The suggestion was made on the sidelines of the men's pink-ball Test and was later debated at the Apex Council meeting (last month)."
The Australian tour has yet to be confirmed, but Australian pacer Megan Schutt said earlier this month that it will begin in mid-September.
The Indian team will meet in Mumbai on Wednesday to prepare for the upcoming UK tour, which will include a Test in Bristol, three ODIs, and as many T20Is as possible.
Furthermore, before travelling to the United Kingdom with the men's players, the team will be quarantined for two weeks.
