The India women's cricket team will square off against Australia Women in a three-match T20 international series starting on Friday, January 5.

As per the India Women vs Australia Women T20Is 2024 schedule, all the matches will be played at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai.

After the opening game, the second and third T20Is will be played on January 7 and 9.

The hosts will look to bounce back after succumbing to a 0-3 ODI series defeat against Australia.

However, the Harmanpreet Kaur-led India earlier beat Australia by eight wickets in the one-off Test at the DY Patil Stadium to register their first victory over the Aussies in Test cricket.

Meanwhile, India have made no changes to their T20I squad that lost 1-2 to England earlier in December. 

Bowling all-rounder Mannat Kashyap, who recently made her ODI debut, has been included in the T20I squad.

The likes of Shreyanka Patil, Titas Sadhu and Saika Ishaque have also retained their places in the T20I squad.

On the other hand, the Australia women’s cricket team will be brimming with confidence after thrashing India in the recently-concluded ODI series.

Led by captain Alyssa Healy, Australia will aim to end the multi-format series with a win in the shortest format. 

Vice-captain Tahlia McGrath, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Beth Mooney, Megan Schutt and Jess Jonassen are some of the high-profile names in the star-studded Australian T20I squad.

Star all-rounder Grace Harris, who didn’t feature in the ODI series, will be part of their 15-member T20I squad.
