Confirmed: Indian Women To Play First Ever Day-Night Test Match In Australia In 2021

The day-night Test format has been one that has been liked a lot by the fans. It has added a new dimension to the game of cricket. The Indian men’s team has already enjoyed success in this format. Now, it is time for the Indian women to play their first-ever Test match. It will be held in Australia before the end of this year, as confirmed recently.

The Indian women have not played any Test match since back in 2014. This is rather shocking to see an international team not being involved in the long format of the game. So far, they have played a tally of 36 Test matches. Despite that, there have been no such matches that they have featured in, at recent times.

The news was a really positive one and the Indian women would have been excited about this opportunity. Test cricket is the holy grail of cricket and this would have made them overjoyed, as they would be part of history. This was something that was promised by the BCC and is now being implemented.

The whole nation would be proud of the progress that women’s cricket is making. If the concept is a hit, it could lead to much bigger and better things. One of the main needs for women’s cricket are sponsors. They need people to come watch and the game and put money for that. This could be the best way to get that done. Put up a spectacle in a day-night game that the world loves and wants more of.

It would also be a great way for the Indian women to return to this format of cricket. They have been away for too long and their fans would be glad to have them back. This could be a treat for the fans of the longer format of the game. Not every fan can be patient enough to watch this format, as it takes a lot of their time and effort to understand and analyze. Keeping that in mind, the modern fans are anything but that. Luckily, there are still some traditional fans of the game around!!
