Indian Women's Cricket Team are all set to play in the longer format once again against England Women's Cricket Team. The one-off Test match will take place later this year, announced the secretary of the Board of control for cricket in India (BCCI), Jay Shah, via a tweet on Monday (March 8) on the occasion of International Women's Day.
While only the announcement has come, the fixture is yet to be revealed. However, it is expected that the one-off Test is going to be a part of India Women's tour of England later in 2021 as well.
Jay Shah took to Twitter and tweeted: "On the occasion of #InternationalWomensDay, I'm pleased to announce that #TeamIndia @BCCIWomen will play a one-off Test match against @ECB_cricket later this year. The women in blue will be donning the whites again "
Indian Women's Cricket Team had last played a Test match nearly seven years ago, back in November 2014 when they took on South Africa Women. However, they won the game by an innings in Mysore as well. Since then, only three more Women's Test matches have been taken place, which was all played between Australia and England.
On the other hand, India and England last took on each other in a Test match against each other in Wormsley in August 2014. Mithali Raj smashed an unbeaten 50 in that match which Team India won by six wickets. It is also noteworthy that, eight Indian players made their debut in that game. So far, India and England have played 13 Tests against each other, with India winning two and England winning one as well.
