ICC Women's World Cup 2022: Jemimah Rodrigues, Shikha Pandey dropped from Mithali Raj-led India squad

New Delhi: Star batter Jemimah Rodrigues was on Thursday dropped from the 15-member Indian women's cricket squad announced for the ICC ODI World Cup to be held in New Zealand from March 4 to April 3.

Veteran Mithali Raj will lead the side with Harmanpreet Kaur as her deputy. The side also includes veterans Smriti Mandhana, Jhulan Goswami and the young Shafali Verma among others.

However, Rodrigues and all-rounder Shikha Pandey have been ignored from the side due to lack of form. Rodrigues failed to hit the double figure mark during the last year in all the international assignments she was a part of. Pandey has been similarly off colour.

The same 14-member squad will also feature in a limited-overs series against New Zealand from 9 to 24 February, comprising one T20 International and five ODIs.

The Squads:

ICC Women's World Cup 2022 & New Zealand ODIs: Mithali Raj (C), Harmanpreet Kaur (VC), Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia, Deepti Sharma, Richa Ghosh (WK), Sneh Rana, Jhulan Goswami, Pooja Vastrakar, Meghna Singh, Renuka Singh Thakur, Taniya Bhatia (WK), Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Poonam Yadav.

Standby Players: Sabbhineni Meghana, Ekta Bisht, Simran Dil Bahadur.

One-off T20I against New Zealand: Harmanpreet Kaur (C), Smriti Mandhana (VC), Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia, Deepti Sharma, Richa Ghosh (WK), Sneh Rana, Pooja Vastrakar, Meghna Singh, Renuka Singh Thakur, Taniya Bhatia (WK), Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Poonam Yadav, Ekta Bisht, S Meghna, Simran Dil Bahadur.

Live Score updates England Women vs India Women Test Day 1: Stumps, Day 1 (269/6 after 92 overs) India will be pleased with their performance. The first two sessions were dominated by England, but the Mithali Raj and Co came back well in the final session. The Indian spinners, in particular, deserve a mention for turning the momentum in India’s favour. Heather Knight was brilliant with the bat, but fell short of what could have been a fine hundred. That's it from us today, but do join us tomorrow as we'll bring you the over by over commentary from Day 2 off the one-off Test.
