The British brought cricket to India in the early 18th century.
India’s first official cricket team was formed in 1911 and toured England. Where they played against teams from the county of England. The Indian team made their test debut against England in 1932. Around the same time (1934) the first women’s Test between England and Australia was held.
However, women’s cricket came to India much later; The Indian Women’s Cricket Association was founded in 1973. The Indian women’s team played its first friendly against the West Indies in 1976.
India recorded its first test victory in November 1978 against the West Indies under the captaincy of Shantha Rangaswamy at the MoinulHaq stadium in Patna.
As part of the International Cricket Council’s initiative to develop women’s cricket, the Indian Women’s Cricket Association merged with the Indian Cricket Control Board in 2006. In 2021, the BCCI announced that Ramesh Powar would be the head coach of the Indian women’s cricket team.
