India women will be touring England in September. BCCI announced the squad earlier this month.
The English team will take on Team India in a series of three T20I matches starting September 10. Each side has selected a strong team for the 20-over games. It is sure to be exciting. All three T20Is are followed by as many ODIs, and all three games are part of the ICC Championship.
England and India are supported by good cricket in recent times. India last played at the Commonwealth Games 2022 where they won a silver medal. England players were part of The Hundred 2022 and had plenty of exposure to white-ball cricket. India beat England in the CWG 2022 match. The upcoming games should be fascinating to see.
