Australia women’s coach Shelley Nitschke says that a changing of the guard has come unexpectedly fast following Meg Lanning’s retirement, and a decision on her full-time replacement will not be made until closer to Australia’s December departure for India. Tahlia McGrath is a potential option for the role. Nitschke also acknowledged the significant period of transition faced by the Australian women’s cricket team. The team’s first assignment following Lanning’s retirement is a tour of India, which includes three T20Is, ODIs, and a Test match and the team’s first in the country since 1984. Australia will keep a close eye on England’s Test in Mumbai against India next month, as foreign conditions pose a significant challenge for the team.
