"The All-India Women's Selection Committee has named the India Women's squad for the Paytm ODI series against Australia Women. The three-match series that will be held in Vadodara is part of the ICC Women's Championship (2017-2020)," BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said.

The Indian women's team had a highly-successful tour of South Africa as Mithali led the ODI side to a 2-1 win, while Harmanpreet Kaur guided a young squad to an emphatic 3-1 victory in a five-match T20 International series to complete a rare double.

India will start the three-match series with the first one-dayer on 12 March, followed by the second and third game on 15 March and 18 March respectively in Vadodara.

"The ODI series will be followed by the T20I tri-series and the squad for the same will be named later," BCCI said in a release.

Squad: Mithali Raj (captain), Harmanpreet Kaur (vice-captain), Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut, Jemimah Rodrigues, Veda Krishnamurthy, Mona Meshram, Sushma Verma (wicket-keeper), Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Shikha Pandey, Sukanya Parida, Pooja Vastrakar, Deepti Sharma.
