The All India Women’s Committee announced a 15-member squad for India Women‘s upcoming home tri-series versus Australia and England. Harmanpreet Kaur will continue to lead the side in the shortest format, whereas Smriti Mandhana will act as her deputy. Veteran pacer, Jhulan Goswami, returns to the squad since her injury in the recently-concluded South Africa tour. The tournament will kick off from March 22, and the finale will be played on March 31. All the games will be played at Cricket Club of India, Mumbai.
