This will be Team India’s first appearance in the format after the victorious Asia Cup campaign in October in which they beat Sri Lanka in the summit clash by 8 wickets. Australia’s last outing in the format was also a memorable one, having won Gold at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. The win helped them complete the treble – both white ball world cups and the commonwealth triumph in a single year.

However, cricket, with its jam-packed schedule doesn’t give victors too much time to celebrate, just like it doesn’t give losers too much time to sulk. This series is an important one for the two sides as they both look to kick off their preparations for the upcoming Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa. Australia, under new skipper, Alyssa Healy will look to continue their dominance while India will be eager to test themselves in a high-pressure situation in front of the home crowd.

Both the squads have new coaches as well with Hrishikesh Kanitakar taking up the role of batting coach ahead of the series. From the Australians’ point of view, this will be the first series in charge for Shelley Nitschke, who previously served as the interim coach.
