Reacting to the schedule, Indian captain Mithali Raj said that she is looking forward to leading her side to World Cup glory.
“We have all been through a very difficult year and are happy to be getting back at playing the game we all love,” said Raj.
“India has been doing very well at ICC tournaments in the past three or four years, whether you talk about the (ODI) World Cup or the recently concluded T20 World Cup, and if we manage to win the tournament in 2022, it will be a massive inspiration for the next generation of girls, as the fifty-over format, is considered the pinnacle for any cricketer.
“I can assure you the team and I are looking forward to it.”
