Harmanpreet replaces Mithali as ODI captain, no Jhulan for SL series; Jemimah returns

Harmanpreet Kaur was on Wednesday named India women’s team captain for the white-ball tour of Sri Lanka on a day when her ODI predecessor Mithali Raj announced her international retirement. Harmanpreet, who remains T20I skipper, and Smriti Mandhana were in the running to replace Mithali in the 50-over format. Eventually, the selectors have gone for the 33-year-old Harmanpreet over the 25-year-old Mandhana.
