Indian veteran Mithali Raj was on Friday retained as the Indian ODI and T20 captain for the upcoming limited-overs series against South Africa starting November 24.
Mithali, who has been leading the national women’s side since 2005, had to briefly play under veteran Anjum Chopra and Jhulan Goswami but has led India for most part of her career.
A veteran of 150 ODIs and 46 T20s, Mithali, 31, has been India’s most dependable middle-order batswoman for quite some time.
The Women’s Selection Committee met here to announce the 15-member squads for the ODIs and T20, which have more or less the same set of players barring a few changes.
The three ODIs in Bengaluru starting Monday will follow the one-off T20 international at the M Chennaswamy Stadium on November 30.
ODI Squad: Mithali Raj (Captain), Jhulan Goswami, Punam Raut, Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur, M.D. Thirushkamini, Vanitha V.R., Rajeshwari Gaekwad, Ekta Bisht, Sushma Verma, Poonam Yadav, Sneh Rana, Swagathika Rath, Shubhlakshmi Sharma, Dipti Sharma.
T20 Squad: Mithali Raj (Captain), Jhulan Goswami, Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut, Sushma Verma, Ekta Bisht, Shubhlakshmi Sharma, Shikha Pandey, Harmanpreet Kaur, Rajeshwari Gaekwad, Poonam Yadav, Sneh Rana, Vanitha V.R., Paramita Roy, Devika Vaidya.
