England women will play against India women in a one-off Test match later this year, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has announced. England will play seven matches against India and South Africa in August and September.

This will be the first time England women will play a Test against India women since 2006. Wormsley Cricket Ground will play host to the Test starting on August 13, 2014.

The England team led by Charlotte Edwards will then play a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against India. The first two ODIs, on August 21 and 23, will be played at Scarborough. The third ODI will be played at Lord’s on August 25.

Then the England team will play a three-match Twenty20 International series against South Africa women. The T20Is will be played on September 1, 3 and 7. The venues will be Chelmsford, Northampton and Edgbaston respectively.

“We fully anticipate both sides will provide strong opposition for England in all three formats of the game,” ECB’ head of women’s cricket Clare Connor said as reported by Sky Sports.

“This is a hugely exciting programme of women’s international cricket, and it is fantastic that we will once again get to see England battle it out against one of the world’s top teams in a Test match.

The recent Women’s Ashes Test in Perth was a wonderful demonstration of women’s cricket at its best and I expect a similarly tight contest when England take on India at Wormsley in August.

“Last summer saw record numbers of spectators through the gates to watch England regain the Women’s Ashes, and this year’s international schedule presents a similarly exciting proposition for cricket fans up and down the country to see some of the best women’s cricketers in the world in action.”
