Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday announced a 16-member squad ahead of the five-match WT20i series against the hosts Bangladesh. Asha Sobhana and Sajeevan Sajana got maiden call-ups as the reward of their glitz in the Womens Premier League (WPL) 2024.

Sobhana, the second leading wicket-taker of the WPL, with 12 scalps including a five-wicket haul, played for Bengaluru this year, while Sajana was a brilliant finisher for Mumbai, who also notched two wickets with the ball.
India Womens team will arrive in Bangladesh on April 23 to engage with the Tigresses in the first-ever five-match T20i series between them. The Sylhet International Cricket Stadium will host all the matches of the series. Three matches of the series will be played under floodlights and the remaining two will be held in the evening. The day-night matches are scheduled for April 28, April 30 and May 9 at the main venue of SICS, while the day matches are slated for May 2 and May 6 respectively at the Outer Stadium of SICS.

This marks the second tour of the Indian girls to Bangladesh in nine months and the third overall visit. The Indian team first visited Bangladesh in 2014 and whitewashed the hosts 3-0. They made their second Bangladesh tour in July last year to play three T20i matches and as many ODIs. India secured the T20i series 2-1 but shared the ODI trophy 1-1.

The series is crucial for both the hosts and guests as it will serve as a platform for their preparation before the forthcoming ACC Womens Asia Cup and ICC Womens T20 World Cup. The Asia Cup 2024 will be held in Sri Lanka between July 19 and 28, while Bangladesh will host this years WT20 World Cup, scheduled to take place in September-October.
