After scheduling a test match against England next month, the Indian women’s team will also face Australia in test cricket later this year. For the first time in 15 years, Indian women will play a test match in Australia. Furthermore, 2021 will be the first year since 2014 that India will play two test matches in a calendar year. India is scheduled to tour Australia in September, ESPNcricinfo reports. Both BCCI and Cricket Australia have yet to confirm the series.
