INDIA-W vs SriLanka-W: The selection committee named T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur as the ODI captain for the series after Mithali announced her retirement from all forms of cricket earlier this month.

Ahead of the team’s departure, head coach Ramesh Powar said: “We are looking for some consistency, we are looking at a winning habit. For that, we all came together as captain, coach, and vice-captain. We have already spoken to the BCCI, and VVS Laxman, who is the head of cricket, and there have been a few things going on.”

Indian women’s cricket team on Sunday arrived in Dambulla for the upcoming white-ball series against Sri Lanka. The Sri Lanka tour will be the first series for the India women’s team in the post-Mithali Raj era, as the country’s long-time captain recently announced her retirement from all forms of international cricket.

“India Women’s Team led by Harmanpreet Kaur arrives in Sri Lanka. India and Sri Lanka will play three T20Is in Dambulla on June 23, 25 and 27 followed by as many ODIs on July 1, 4 and 7,” tweeted Sri Lanka Cricket.

Harmanpreet Kaur, who has been captain of India’s T20 team since 2018, will now also be leading the team in the 50-over format. She believes it will be more leisurely for her and the team going ahead now that she has also been named the ODI skipper.

“I think things will be easier for me now because [when] two different captains were there, sometimes things were not easy because we both had different ideas,” Harmanpreet had said during a virtual press conference.

“But now the players will think clearly [and know] what I am demanding as a captain, and everybody can look forward to that. It’s easier for me to ask them what I’m expecting from them, so things will be much easier for me and my teammates also,” she added.

This will be India’s first international assignment since the Women’s World Cup in March, where they bowed out in the group stages after a loss in the virtual quarter-final against South Africa.
