The Indian Women’s World Cup cricket team will meet on Sunday in Mumbai for a week’s quarantine before traveling to New Zealand.
Players gathered in Dehradun recently to join the team and were also assigned tasks to develop leadership skills for the youngsters on the team.
They have now asked 15 members and three of their reservations to go to Mumbai, and they will be isolated for a week. The team will travel to New Zealand on January 24th and the players will have to face another quarantine when they arrive.
India play a five-game series and a T20I match against the New Zealand host starting on February 11, before the March-April ODI World Cup.
The team’s management wanted a week-long training camp before the departure, but could not be organized across the country due to the increase in COVID-19 cases.
India reached the finals of the 2017 edition, giving a big boost to the country’s women’s cricket. The team led by Mithali Raj is expected to go all the way this time.
Well-known names like Shikha Pandey, Jemimah Rodrigues and Punam Raut were removed from the World Cup squad, causing controversy.
