Advisable to have domestic women’s pink-ball event before D/N Test in Australia: Shantha Rangaswamy

NEW DELHI: BCCI Apex Council member and former captain Shantha Rangaswamy on Thursday welcomed the scheduled resumption of Test cricket for Indian women and hoped that the board will organise a domestic pink-ball tournament before the day-night Test in Australia.
Rangaswamy spoke after Cricket Australia announced that India’s inaugural pink-ball Test will be held at the WACA in Perth from September 30.
India also play a red-ball Test against England next month, their first in seven years. Considering red-ball events have not been held in domestic cricket since 2018, it will be a tough challenge for the Mithali Raj-led squad.
“The BCCI has been planning on certain tournaments for women cricketers in the last year. But time and again plans have gone haywire because of the pandemic. It is heartening to note that the board has planned a Test during the Indian women’s tour of England,” Rangaswamy told PTI.
