IND-W vs SA-W vs WI-W Tri Series 2023: India Women’s Schedule, Full List of Matches & Match Times in IST


Team India’s final preparations for the upcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup next month begin on Thursday, January 19 with a tri-series in South Africa against the hosts and the West Indies. Last month, the Women in Blue challenged world champions Australia at home despite the absence of regular skipper Meg Lanning. Although Team India showed some sparks, their efforts were not enough as the hosts could only win one match in the series.

The Women in Blue will be without two of their most formidable players, Shafali Verma at the top and wicketkeeper-batter Richa Ghosh at centre, who will represent the junior team in the inaugural ICC U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup. While S Meghana is likely to open the innings with Vice-Captain Smriti Mandhana, Sushma Verma and Shikha Pandey have earned well-deserved national recalls. This tournament is certainly a great opportunity for the Women in Blue to showcase their talent on the international stage and make a lasting impression.

The series begins with India taking on host South Africa, which will be led by all-rounder Sune Luus in the absence of regular skipper Dane van Niekerk, who failed to meet the necessary fitness requirements.

It will be intriguing to see how the Women in Blue adjust to the absence of Shafali and Richa, and whether their batting strategy will be changed without an intimidating presence at the top of the lineup. The third team to participate is West Indies, led by renowned all-rounder Hayley Matthews.
