After a full-fledged tour of England, India Women are ready to be hosted by Australia in all three formats of the game. The teams will first meet in the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series in Mackay on Tuesday (September 21).
A historic one-off pink-ball Test match will follow the ODI leg. Thereafter, both nations will lock horns in the three-match T20I series. All the T20Is will be played at Carrara Oval in Queensland, where the one-off Test is also scheduled to take place.
Vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur will not be seen in action in the ODI series opener as she has been ruled out due to a thumb injury. India coach Ramesh Powar confirmed the development while stating that Harmanpreet’s availability in the second ODI will be taken in due course.
“She was declared fit. She was selected for this tour, but, unfortunately, she got a hit on the thumb some days back and is not available for the first ODI. Next ODI, we will take a call according to her pain management and fitness management,” said Powar as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
