Commonwealth Games 2022: Harmanpreet Kaur to lead India in maiden CWG campaign as India announce 15-member squad for Birmingham – Check out

India Cricket Squad CWG 2022: The All Selection Committee have named a full-strength squad as India’s women’s cricket team prepares for their maiden Commonwealth Games campaign in Birmingham. The Indian team recently played in a white-ball series against Sri Lanka to prepare for the tournament, and the selection committee have retained most of the squad. Simran Dil Bahadur, Richa Ghosh, Poonam Yadav have been named as additional substitutes.

The most notable player to make a comeback to the national fold is all-rounder Sneh Rana, who didn’t play in the Sri Lanka series owing to an injury which kept her at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for rehabilitation. Taniya’s selection was surprising as she has totalled 166 runs in 22 innings at an average of 9.72 with a strike-rate of 94.

Bengal’s Richa Ghosh was the unfortunate casualty. She has scored 191 runs in 14 games at a strike-rate of 112 plus but is now in the reserves list as she has fallen off the radar in recent times. Veteran leg-spinner Poonam Yadav, who is no longer a certainty in the squad, is also in the stand-by list along with seamer Simran Dil Bahadur.

India is in Group A with Australia, Barbados, and Pakistan. Sri Lanka, England, New Zealand, and South Africa are placed in Group B. The top two teams from the respective pools will progress to the semi-finals. India is scheduled to play three games in the league stage of the tournament starting 29th July 2022.
