India women to play one-off Test during tour of England in June
The Indian women’s cricket team will take on England in a four-day Test match at the Bristol County Ground, starting on June 16.
This will be India's first Test match after a wait of more than six years.
India's last Test match was against South Africa in Mysore in 2014, which they won by an innings and 34 runs. Mithali Raj was captain then.
Meanwhile, the Indian women’s team tour of England also features three ODIs and three T20Is.
The England Cricket Board (ECB) also announced that the England women’s cricket team will lock horns with New Zealand for a three-match T20I rubber, alongside a five-match ODI series.
"We're really looking forward to a busy summer in what is a huge year for our England Women's team, and we're very excited about hosting India and New Zealand," ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison said.
"With the 2022 ICC Women's World Cup around the corner, it is of paramount importance that our England team can prepare accordingly, and with the team also due to travel to Pakistan in October, we can look forward to an exciting 12 months of international women's cricket," Harrison pointed out.
