The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) named India's women's squad for T20 World Cup 2023 on Wednesday. Team India ended up as the runner-up in the last edition of the T20 World Cup and will be hoping to do better this time around.
Harmanpreet Kaur will serve as the skipper of the Indian women's squad in the important ICC competition.
In addition to the T20 World Cup squad, the All-India Women's Selection Committee also announced the squad for the January tri-series in South Africa. This series will be seen as the perfect preparation for the T20 World Cup.
