The Indian women would be in England in June where they would be involved in three series f three formats, which include a one-off Test at Bristol on June 16. The tour concludes with the third and last T20I on July 15.
The Hundred kicks off July 21 with the women teams of Oval Invincibles and Manchester Originals meeting at the Oval in London before their male teams meet the next day at the same venue.
India Women getting permission to play in foreign leagues is a welcome event as they were not allowed to take part in the last year's Women's BBL.
