Shah took to Twitter to make the big announcement on the occasion of International Women’s Day. “On the occasion of #InternationalWomensDay, I’m pleased to announce that #TeamIndia @BCCIWomen will play a one-off Test match against @ECB_cricket later this year. The women in blue will be donning the whites again,” he tweeted.

India have, however, won their last three Tests – defeating England Women twice in their own backyard, winning by 5 and 6 wickets respectively, while condemning South Africa women to an innings and 34-run defeat. 

England, on the other hand, have played 95 matches with the team winning 20 while losing 14. The two have met on 13 ocassions in the format and India have 2-1 head-to-head tie.
