Indian women to tour Australia for A series in December

Press Trust of India  |  Melbourne 

women's A team will embark on its maiden tour to in December this year for a limited-overs series, confirmed Friday.

The series is a part of an agreement between CA and to host annual A series between the two nations.

The first such series was held in October last year, when A toured for an ODI and T20 series.

During the tour, A will play three ODIs and as many T20 matches in and respectively starting December 12.

The three ODIs between India 'A' and Australia 'A' will be played in on December 12, 14 and 16 while the T20 matches will be hosted by December 19, 21 and 23.

"Hosting the first A tour for our female cricketers is another important step in the evolution of the National Talent Pathway," Australia's said in a statement.

"A lot of work has gone into the women's pathway and we've already seen numerous players come through the system and show they are capable to taking the next step to international level.

"We now have annual tours for our Australia Under 19 team, the Women's National Performance Squad is in its third year and now being able to schedule regular Australia A tours, both at home and away is the icing on the cake.
