We are hopeful that of a Women’s Tri-series including South Africa and India at this end of this year. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has declared that 24 numbers of its cricketers will return to the field for individual training from 22nd June.

Now ECB is trying to encourage Cricket South Africa and the BCCI to agree on this tour to organize a tri-series at the end of this year but yet nothing has been confirmed.
