Indian women to attend training camp at Bengaluru before Australia tour: Report

A group of 30 players will assemble in Bengaluru for a two-week training camp before the final squad selection for the Australia tour

A core group of 30 players are set to assemble for a training camp at Bengaluru on Tuesday ahead of Indian women's team's tour of Australia beginning next month, according to a report by ESPNCricinfo.

The likes of Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma and Harmanpreet Kaur, who are currently playing in The Hundred in the UK will join the group next week. According to the report, the final squad is set to fly to Australia on August 29 or 30 before beginning their mandatory two-week quarantine.

The current group of players comprises 21 players who were part of the recent England tour and the limited-overs series at home against South Africa earlier this year. Railways pacer Meghna Singh and pace-bowling all-rounder Amanjot Kaur are the new additions to the national camp, while Haryana pacer Mansi Joshi is a notable omission.

They will begin the multi-format series with the three ODIs to be played on September 19, 22 and 24. India, who played a Test match after a gap of seven years against England in June, will play their maiden pink-ball Test at Perth from September 30. The tour will conclude with three T20Is scheduled for October 7,9 and 11.

Verma, along with Radha Yadav and one more Indian player will stay back in Australia to take part in the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) later in the year.
