Indian women to play their first-ever pink ball test soon in Australia: Jay Shah

Indian women to play their first ever pink ball test soon in Australia: Jay Shah.

The Indian women’s cricket team will feature in their first-ever pink ball (day/night) test match soon when they tour Australia later this year, Jay Shah informed the fans.

Jay Shah, who is the secretary of the BCCI, announced the news on his Twitter handle and stated that the move is part of the BCCI’s commitment to take the women’s cricket game one step forward each day.

“Taking forward our commitment towards women’s cricket, I am extremely pleased to announce that Team India @BCCIwomen will play in their first-ever pink ball day-night Test later this year in Australia,” Shah tweeted.

After a long haul of seven years, the Indian women’s cricket team will once again don the test kits against England, starting June 16 and another one in the subsequent Australia tour later in 2021. The women’s contingent is also scheduled to play T20I and ODI series down under.

The last test match Indian women played was way back in 2014 against England in Wormsley Park.

The exact dates of the tours and the games are not revealed but most probably it is going to be after September.

The game between Indian women and Australian women will be the second day/night Test game in the history of women’s cricket. The first pink ball Day/Night test was held between Australia and England back in November 2017 in Sydney.
