Wicketkeeper Ravi Kalpana made a comeback to the Indian women‘s cricket team following a long hiatus after she was included in the 15-member squad, led by skipper Mithali Raj, for the upcoming three-match ODI series against England starting on February 22 in Mumbai.

Kalpana, who last played for India three years ago in a home ODI against Sri Lanka, replaced batting all-rounder D Hemalatha in the squad that had won the ODI series 2-1 in New Zealand.

Kalpana, who made her ODI debut at home against New Zealand in 2015, will be the second wicketkeeper in the squad apart from Taniya Bhatia. (ALSO READ: Mithali Raj to lead India women against England, Smriti Mandhana named BPXI skipper for a warm-up)
