India’s women’s team will be touring South Africa shortly for a series of three ODI matches and five T20I matches. The 3 ODI matches between South Africa women and India women will be part of the 2017-20 ICC Women’s Championship.
BCCI has announced the squad for the India Women’s team for the ODI series in South Africa. Mithali Raj will lead the squad with known names like Harmanpreet Kaur, Sushma Verma, Veda Krishnamurthy, Ekta Bisht, Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut and Jhulan Goswami making the cut. New names such as wonder girl Jemimah Rodrigues, Pooja Vastrakar and Taniya Bhatia were also included in the squad.
Rodrigues, all of 17, came into spotlight for smashing 202 in the Inter-State women's Under-19 one-day tournament for Mumbai against Saurashtra. She became only the second player to hit a double century in an Under-19 fixture after Smriti Mandhana.
The first and second WODI matches will be played on February 5 and 7 at Diamond Oval, Kimberly; while the third WODI will be played on February 10 at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom.
