India's T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur expressed to wish to play as many Test matches as possible as the longest format has become a rarity in women's cricket.
India will be playing a Test match after a gap of seven years when they take on hosts England in a one-off game in Bristol from June 16.
"It is a great feeling. Playing a Test match is a dream. I want to play many Test matches in my life and I hope we will continue (doing) this," Harmanpreet told teammate Jemimah Rodrigues in a video posted on BCCI's website.

"Playing in England with red ball is challenging and we all are very excited about this," Harmanpreet, who has so far represented India in two Tests, said added.
Harmanpreet will be a key member of the team which will play three ODIs and as many T20s against England besides the Test match.
India is also scheduled to play a one-off day/night Test during their tour of Australia later this year.
