NCA chief VVS Laxman interacts with Harmanpreet Kaur-led India women’s team ahead of their tour of Sri Lanka


National Cricket Academy (NCA) chief VVS Laxman interacted with India women’s team ahead of their tour of Sri Lanka in the post-Mithali Raj era.

The selection committee named T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur as the ODI captain for the series after Mithali announced her retirement from all forms of cricket earlier this month. India and Sri Lanka will play three T20Is and as many ODIs between June 23 – July 7.

Ahead of the team’s departure, head coach Ramesh Powar said: “We are looking for some consistency, we are looking at a winning habit. For that, we all came together as captain, coach, and vice-captain. We have already spoken to the BCCI, and VVS Laxman, who is the head of cricket, and there have been a few things going on.”

“We are trying to work on our fielding and fitness and take our players to the next level. That is the immediate goal that we are trying to achieve. We want to win World Cups, but it is important that you build a squad which can compete in every condition and against every opposition.”

It will be India’s first series after having a premature exit from the 2022 ODI World Cup in New Zealand and without Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami, who is yet to take a call on her career.

India’s T20I squad: Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Smriti Mandhana (vc), Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia (wk), S Meghna, Deepti Sharma, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Simran Bahadur, Richa Ghosh (wk), Pooja Vastrakar, Meghna Singh, Renuka Singh, Jemimah Rodrigues, Radha Yadav.
