new Delhi. The final of the ICC Womens T20 World Cup 2020 was played on 8 March. Since then the Indian women’s team has not landed, but now after one year, the Indian team has got the first assignment. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed that the Indian women’s team is going to play international cricket from next month. However, the schedule has not been decided yet. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is set to announce the white ball series against the South African women’s team next month. Both teams will play five One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three T20 Internationals in March.
Work is being done on the schedule of this series. This will be the first international assignment for the Indian team after the final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020. Given that the series includes international travel. Therefore the duration of the series will be more than a month, as the guest team will have to go through quarantine and then both the teams will get entry into the bio-safe environment. In such a situation, BCCI would like to organize ODIs and T20 series at least places. It may also happen that all the matches of the two series could also be played in one city.
The BCCI official told Cricbuzz, “The schedule and details of the series have been worked out and will be announced soon. We are coordinating with Cricket South Africa. The dates will be out soon.” The South African Board has not responded to confirm this. The South African women’s team is currently playing a home series against Pakistan, which ends on 3 February. In such a situation, will Indian women players play domestic cricket or not? It is also to be considered.
