The India women's national cricket team also known as Women in Blue represents the country of India in international women's cricket. One of eight teams competing in the ICC Women's Championship, the highest level of international women's cricket, the team is organised by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

India made its Test debut in 1976, against the West Indies, and its One Day International (ODI) debut at the 1978 World Cup, which it hosted. The team made the final of the 2005 World Cup, losing to Australia by 98 runs, and has made the semi-finals on three other occasions (in 1997, 2000, and 2009). India has also made the semi-finals of the World Twenty20 on two occasions (2009 and 2010), but is yet to progress any further in the tournament.

History

Eight female cricketers stand on a field. Two players are in red practice jerseys; three other players in red jerseys are facing toward them; a player in a blue shirt is facing away and hides another player in a blue game shirt. In the upper left corner is a fan with an Indian flag.

The British brought cricket to India in the early 1700s, with the first cricket match played in 1721.[1] The first Indian cricket club was established by the Parsi community in Bombay, in 1848; the club played their first match against the Europeans in 1877.[2] The first official Indian cricket team was formed in 1911 and toured England, where they played English county teams.[3] The India team made their Test debut against England in 1932.[4] Around the same time (1934), the first women's Test was played between England and Australia.[5] However, women's cricket arrived in India much later; the Women's Cricket Association of India was formed in 1973.[6] The Indian women's team played their first Test match in 1976, against the West Indies.[7]

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is the governing body for the Indian cricket team and first-class cricket in India. The Board has been operating since 1929 and represents India at the International Cricket Council. It is amongst the richest sporting organisations in the world. It sold media rights for India's matches from 2006–2010 for US$612,000,000.[9] It manages the Indian team's sponsorships, its future tours and team selection.

The International Cricket Council determines India's upcoming matches through its future tours program.
