India Women Set to tour Sri Lanka Ahead Of Commonwealth Games 2022

According to sources in Times of India, the team India will play three ODIs and T20 in June-July. The tour will be a warm up and a platform to flourish before the important Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Times of India was reported by a source in the BCCI. The official statement read,

The team will arrive in Sri Lanka on June 18. The first ODI is scheduled to take place on June 23, while the first T20I will be held on July 3. The tour will end with the last T20I on July 7.

The questions were raised as Sri Lanka’s economic situation and unrest might cause issues. But the BCCI isn’t much worried about the situation. Citing Australia’s men’s tour during the same time frame, BCCI has set their women’s tour. The unrest and political turmoil will cause no impact on the cricket matches in Sri Lanka.

“Even the Australian men’s cricket team is touring Lanka around the same time. So cricket shouldn’t be affected by that,” the BCCI source said.

The Commonwealth Games Cricket matches will take place from 29th July to 7th August 2022. India are placed in Group A alongside Australia, Barbados and Pakistan. The T20 Cricket matches will be held at Edgbaston Stadium.
