D Hemalatha and Radha Yadav make a comeback. The Railways batter last represented India in the 2022 Asia Cup final in Bangladesh where as Radha had been on the sidelines since India’s semi-final exit at the 202 T20 World Cup in South Africa.

Minnu Mani and Mannat Kashyap have been dropped from India’s squad. They were part of the team’s last T20I assignment, against Australia at home at the start of the year.
