Bangladesh women will face India for the first time, when they tour the country for three Twenty20s and as many ODIs, starting in Vadodara on Tuesday.

India have omitted senior batsman Mithali Raj and experienced fast bowler Jhulan Goswami, among others, from the 15-member squad for the series. Batsman Harmanpreet Kaur will take over as captain from Raj, who led India during their first-round exit in the recently-concluded Women's World Cup.

Bangladesh weren't a part of that tournament. Having started playing international cricket in 2011, they last played the Twenty20 Asia Cup in Guangzhou, reaching the semi-finals of the tournament. Salma Khatun will lead the 15-member side on the ten-day tour, which will end with the final ODI in Ahmedabad on April 12.


India: Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), Poonam Raut (vice-capt), Thirush Kamini, Smriti Mandhana, Anagha Deshpande, Sneha Deepthi, Mona Meshram, Nagarajan Niranjana, Archana Das, Poonam Yadav, Ritu Dhrub, Swagatika Rath, Shubhlakshmi Sharma, Sushma Verma, Ekta Bisht

Bangladesh: Salma Khatun (capt), Farzana Haque (vice-capt), Shohaly Akther, Ayesha Akhter, Fahima Khatun, Jahanara Alam, Lata Mondal, Nuzhat Tasnia, Panna Ghosh, Ritu Moni, Rumana Ahmed, Shahanaz Parvin, Shukhtara Rahman, Tazia Akhter, Yasmin Boishakhi

@BBrianBlair - yes she is. Typical attitude of 'bigger' nations to rest their key players against the ones they perceive as 'minnors'. One defeat and she'd be hustled back to the team next match. This is exactly how we lost in the first round of WC too ..

Mithali is out ? Isn't she the no. 1 batter in women's cricket ?
