London: Feb 24, 2014

Indian women will play their first cricket Test since 2006 after a four-day contest was pencilled into their tour of England in August.

The Test match against India and England will be played from August 13-16 and it will be the first time that the two sides have played the longest format of the game against each other since 2006.

On that occasion, India won a two-Test series 1-0, securing a thrilling five-wicket victory in the second match at Taunton with just four balls to spare on the final day.

Anjum Chopra made 98 in the first innings then England collapsed to 99 all out as Jhulan Goswami took 5 for 33, before the home side hit back through a hundred by Charlotte Edwards to leave a target of 98. India slipped to 74 for 5 in the chase before securing the victory.

The Test is a part of an itinerary that will also include three One-Day Internationals — on August 21 and 23 at Scarborough Cricket Club and on August 25 at Lord’s.

Clare Conner, the head of women’s cricket for the England Cricket Board (ECB), said: “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.”

Schedule:

13-16 August – England v India, Test, Wormsley

21 August – England Women v India, ODI, Scarborough

23 August – England Women v India, ODI, Scarborough

25 August – England Women v India, ODI, Lord’s.
