The BCCI has granted “No Objection Certificates” to four Indian women cricketers, including T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur, to play in the inaugural ‘Hundred’ tournament in the United Kingdom starting on July 21.
Opener Smriti Mandhana and all-rounder Deepti Sharma are among the four bound for the 100-ball tournament. The name of the fourth player is not yet known.
It is learnt that these four Indian players will extend their stay in the UK following the completion of India’s multi-format tour of England in June-July.
The tour begins with a one-off Test at Bristol on June 16 and concludes with the third and final T20I on July 15.
A three-match ODI series is slotted in between.
