Thanks to the growing popularity of Indian women’s cricket, Sony is attracting great interest from advertisers. For this series, Sony Sports has signed deals with five sponsors namely Byju’s, Airtel, Reckitt, Dafa News and Fantasy Akhada while many more are said to be in the pipeline.

The Australian squad, on the other hand, has Meg Lanning as the captain and Rachael Haynes as the vice-captain. Other players include Darcie Brown, Maitlan Brown, Stella Campbell, Nicola Carey, Hannah Darlington, Ashleigh Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Tahlia McGrath, Sophie Molineux, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Georgia Redmayne, Molly Strano, Annabel Sutherland, Tayla Vlaeminck and Georgia Wareham.

“The upcoming series with the Aussies will have historical importance as Team India will be playing their maiden pink-ball day-night Test match at the WACA as a part of the one-off pink-ball day-night Test match. The match will also be the second day-night Test with the first pink ball in women’s cricket history after the drawn contest between Australia and England in Sydney in 2017,” said Sony in a statement.
