Indian women’s cricket team arrives in Sri Lanka for a limited tour

The Harmanpreet Kaur-led Indian women’s cricket team arrived here on Sunday for its limited tour of Sri Lanka, which begins on 23 June.

Without senior players like Mithali Raj, who has announced his retirement, and veteran Jhulan Goswami, a young Indian team will play three ODIs and as many T20 internationals in Pallekele and Dambulla respectively.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) welcomed the visiting team, coached by Ramesh Powar, upon its arrival and also posted photos and pictures on its social media handle.

Prior to its departure, the Indian team went through a camp at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru and also interacted with NCA chief Plumbing Laxman.

According to Harmanpreet, the trip was a great opportunity to build the team.

We work hard on our team, we have good combinations. And for us, it’s a good trip to start, for the first time we have to play without our seniors and a great opportunity for all of us to build a team, Harmanpreet had said on Saturday.

The trip starts with the first T20I at Dambulla on 23 June.
