The women in blue last took the field on the 7th of August, the day they’d worn silver medals around their necks on the English soil after losing to Australia in the finals by a teasing margin of 9 runs in women’s cricket debut season at the recently concluded Commonwealth Games.
Eyeing the silverware at stake in the upcoming T20 World Cup that’ll be played early next year in South Africa, India will start working with a blueprint starting with the series against England wanting a title finish. The ODI series against England will be India’s 2nd w.r.t women’s championship, they’d begun the cycle against Sri Lanka in July and with a 3-0 clean sweep are off to a great start.
