The Indian women’s cricket squad for the World Twenty20 Championship to be held in March-April was left unchanged from the side that won a historic series against Australia.

Mithali Raj will captain the squad in the tournament to be played in India.

The Indian women had scripted history by recording their first ever bilateral series triumph against Australia last month.

The team is currently playing the ODI series Down Under. Australia took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series 1-0 after winning the first ODI in Canberra by 101 runs and the second in Hobart by six wickets.
