A notable absentee from the squad is Pooja Vastrakar, who is ruled out owing to an injury and subsequently was not considered for selection, while Sneh Rana, D Hemalatha, and Kiran Navgire, who all were a part of the Asia Cup which India won in October, are also a few names missing from the mix.

Yastika Bhatia is all set to make her comeback even as Pooja Vastrakar was dropped from the team as India take on Australia in the five match T20I series which is starting on December 9. According to the press release issued by the BCCI, India have named a 15-member side for the upcoming five-match T20I series starting at the DY Patil Stadium.

Uncapped left-arm bowler Anjali Sarvani has been named in the squad which will be led by India’s regular skipper Harmanpreet Kaur with Smriti Mandhana as her deputy.
