India women’s team to play South Africa women in Lucknow


News

This will be the first international cricket India women will play since the T20 World Cup final a year ago

The India women’s team are set to play their first game in a year since the Women’s T20 World Cup final on March 8, 2020. They will face South Africa women in a series of five ODIs and three T20Is in Lucknow, beginning on March 7.

The series was originally supposed to be held in Thiruvananthapuram, but the Kerala Cricket Association informed the BCCI about its inability to host the games as the ground has been “made available to the Indian military for a recruitment drive, without the KCA’s prior knowledge”, and it doesn’t have a venue with “appropriate broadcast facilities”.

The Karnataka Cricket Association was touted to then host the games in Bengaluru, but the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association confirmed in a press release on Tuesday that all eight games would take place at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow.

India’s and South Africa’s squads for the ODIs and T20Is haven’t been announced yet.
