They will be hoping to give their best shot at winning the cup and taking the trophy back home.

There are now 16 teams in the T20 World Cup - the next edition of which will take place in Australia this July - but the ICC is mulling over increasing this number as part of broader discussions for the shape of the global cricket calendar from 2023-2031. The Ladies in Blue will kick-off their marketing campaign on the showpiece occasion towards hosts Australia in Sydney on February 21. One is about having all 20 teams enter at the same stage, meaning that a simple format of four groups of five teams each could be used, with the leading teams then advancing to the knockouts. Earlier, the same team used to play but after 2017 ODI World Cup, a lot of new prospects have emerged.

The Hemlata Kala-lead All-India Ladies's Choice Committee additionally introduced a 16-member squad for a tri-series in Australia previous to the T20 World Cup. "Richa Ghosh is a new player and here the role of selectors increases", Hemlatha told reporters at a press conference here. The tournament starts on January 31st and also includes England.

The team has continued to show its faith in Harmanpreet Kaur who will continue as the skipper. "Before the World Cup, this series is going to be a big one for us and we will look for our best combination", Harmanpreet said. As Hemlatha madam mentioned, we have Richa, who did well in the Challenger Trophy and domestic cricket, so we will stick to our best XI. "If you go to a World Cup and you aren't confident in your abilities then you don't have to rock up, we have to go there to win otherwise might as well not go", she said.

IN voters widely supported Trump in the 2016 USA election, with all but four districts in the state backing his presidency. Without explicitly naming Mr Trump, he suggested "a narcissist in Washington" ultimately caused the air tragedy.

Talking about the team bonding and captain Harmanpreet Kaur she said "We have very good team bonding we always support each other which I think is very good".

The report also said that if the World T20 expanded to 20 teams, several options could be considered for the short format. In recent years the ICC has targeted the United States market and is fully focussed in their quest to establish cricket in the country.

Tri-Series (16 member) squad: Harmanpreet Kaur (captain), Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodriguez, Harleen Deol, Deepti Sharma, Veda Krishnamurthy, Richa Ghosh, Tania Bhatia, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav, Rajeshwari Gaikwad, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Arundhati Reddy, Nuzhat Parveen.
