Just before the inaugural edition of the Under 19 Women’s World Cup in 2023 in South Africa, team India will play a couple of tri-series involving New Zealand and West Indies in the months of November and December. As per reports, team India will field two teams (India U19 A and India U19 B) and take on the touring sides one after another.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has apparently booked the DY Patil Stadium and BKC stadium in Mumbai from November 20 to December 06 to organise the matches. The main purpose to host these matches is to identify talents and prepare themselves well for the mega tournament which is scheduled to begin on January 14 and will last till January 29 of 2023.

“The idea is to have robust preparation for the Under-19 World Cup and the selectors will have a range of players to pick as we are planning to field two Indian teams,” Cricbuzz quoted a source who’s aware of the latest developments.

Senior Women’s team to take on Australia for five-match T20I series in December

The current Asian champions India is all set to take on the world champions Australia in a five-match T20I series later this year. With the Women’s T20 World Cup scheduled to begin on February 10 in 2023, India will aim to prepare well for the series and send a message to the rest of the teams before the mega tournament.

On the other hand, the series will also mark the first time when women’s cricketers will be paid equally to their male counterparts. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah announced the decision on Thursday and it will come to practice from Australia’s tour to India.

From now on, the women cricketers will be paid INR 15 lakh per Test, INR 6 lakh per ODI and INR 3 lakh per T20 international. The cricketing board is also planning to host the inaugural women’s IPL early in 2023.
