Harmanpreet Kaur’s India to play a multi-format series against Australia before T20 World Cup 2024

The Indian women's team are currently on a roll, thrashing South Africa in three ODIs and a Test most recently.

The Indian women’s cricket team will embark on a multi-format tour of Australia next month as part of their preparation for the upcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Bangladesh. This ‘A’ series will feature three T20 Internationals, three One-Day Internationals (ODIs), and a four-day Test match.

The T20I matches will be played at Allan Border Field in Brisbane, while the Mackay’s Great Barrier Reef Arena will host the ODIs. The four-day Test will be held at the Gold Coast District Cricket Club.

Australia ‘A’ announces Tahlia McGrath as captain

Cricket Australia has unveiled the schedule and named three separate squads for the Australia A side. Tahlia McGrath will lead the team in the T20I and ODI formats, while Charli Knott will take charge for the four-day Test.

McGrath expressed her excitement about the upcoming series, stating, “I’m really looking forward to being a part of this series and for the challenge that India A will pose. It presents those of us not playing in The Hundred with the chance to prepare for a huge summer against a strong opposition.”
