Australia will host India in September and October in a seven-game, multi-format series between two of the top women’s teams in the world.
The series will be played entirely in Queensland due to the ongoing lockdowns in NSW and Victoria, and will feature one Test, three ODIs and three T20s.
The tour will start with the ODIs at the Great Barrier Reef Arena in Mackay, with matches scheduled for September 21, 24 and 26.
The lone Test match of the series will begin on September 30 at Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast, with the T20 matches also taking place at the same ground on October 7, 9 and 10.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Australia vs India women’s series.
The multi-format series between Australia and India will begin on September 21 with an ODI, and will run through until October 10.
Matches will be played across two separate grounds – Great Barrier Reef Arena and Metricon Stadium.
There will be one Test, three ODIs and three T20s.
In great news for cricket fans, all seven games of the series will be broadcast live in Australia.
Channel 7, Fox Cricket and Kayo will all broadcast the games between Australia and India.
The men have the Border-Gavasker Yrophy and the women have…?
Because the two countries have never played in a points-based series against one another, the new trophy doesn’t have a name yet.
There’ll be a points-based system, much like the Women’s Ashes. Two points are on offer for each limited-overs win, with four for an outright victory in the lone Test.
A drawn Test will see the two countries share the points.
