The Indian women‘s cricket team will be playing a four-day ‘Test’ match after a gap of eight long years as they gear up for a short two and half week tour of England starting August 7. India will be playing a ‘Test’ and three ODIs during the 19 day trip after from two practice games.

The Test match will be played at the Wormsley Cricket Ground from August 13-16.

Squad: Mithali Raj (Captain), Karuna Jain (Vice Captain), Smriti Mandhana, MD Thirushkamini, Punam Raut, Harmanpreet Kaur, Jhulan Goswami, Niranjana N, Shubhlakshmi Sharma, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav, Swagathika Rath, Vanitha VR, Sushma Verma,
