India will begin their ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on March 6. The selectors have dropped Jemimah Rodrigues and Shikha Pandey owing to poor form.
After sporting events in 2020 were hampered by coronavirus, 2021 saw major events like the Tokyo Olympics being staged. Indian athletes, especially the Paralympians, shone in Tokyo 2020 but cricket was not to be left behind.
India lost to England in ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 final at Lord's by nine runs. India play Pakistan on March 6 at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand.
Smriti Mandhana has established herself as among the best batters. Harmanpreet Kaur has been the T20 captain since 2016 but her inconsistent run as a batter doesn't make her an automatic choice to replace Mithali Raj in the longer formats.
An unprecedented 12 sportspersons were presented with India's highest sporting honour, the Major Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna.
Mithali Raj received the Khel Ratna from President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday. The Test and ODI team captain has dedicated the national award to her family.
PR Sreejesh, Mithali Raj, Pramod Bhagat, Sumit Antil, Avani Lekhara, Krishna Nagar and M Narwal were also recommended for the Major Dhyanchand Khel Ratna by the selection committee.
Indian veteran Raj held the women's record with an unbeaten 114 against Ireland in 1999 at the age of 16 years and 205 days.
Mithali stated that the timing of the declaration of the second innings was a little bit tricky as the Australia women vs India women Test match ended in a draw.
India, who came into the game with only two practice sessions with pink-ball, outplayed the Australians in all departments. It was the first time in 15 years that two teams played a Test.
Indian women declared their second Innings at 135/3 to force a decision on the fourth and final day of the one-off Test. Follow live cricket scores of AUS-W vs IND-W.
With the wicket of Pooja Vastrakar, Ellyse Perry became the only woman cricketer to have a combined 300 wickets and 5000 runs at the international level.

Stumps have been drawn on Day 1 of the one-off day-night pink-ball Test match between Australia Women and India Women due to incessant rains. This is Indian women's second Test of the year.
India and Australia women teams renew Test rivalry after 15 years with landmark Day-Night match. Check match and telecast details.
India and Australia last played a Test in 2006 with only Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami featuring in that game among the current players on both sides.
With the 14-day quarantine upon arrival in Australia and ODI series to follow, the team has got very little time to prepare for the Test, beginning on Thursday.
South Africa's Lizelle Lee (761) grabbed the top spot after gaining one place. Australia's Alyssa Healy is at second spot with 750 points.
