BCCI announced 15-member Indian women’s cricket team for 2018 ODI series against England, to be played in Nagpur. Opener Punam Raut was dropped from the team which played against Australia, this month.  Uncapped 23-year-old Tamil Nadu allrounder Dayalan Hemalatha has been named in place of Raut, who was criticised for slow batting in the ODI series against Australia earlier this month which India lost 0-3.
