2017–18 India women's Tri-Nation Series

The 2017–18 India women's Tri-Nation Series was a cricket tournament that took place in India in March 2018. It was a tri-nation series between Australia women, England women and the India women cricket teams.[4] The matches were played as Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) fixtures, with the top two teams progressing to the final on 31 March 2018.[5] Ahead of the WT20I fixtures, India A played two warm-up fixtures against England.[6]

In the third match of the series, England's Jenny Gunn became the first player, male or female, to play in 100 Twenty20 International matches.[7] In the fifth match, Australia's Meg Lanning became the first player for Australia, male or female, to score 2,000 runs in Twenty20 Internationals.[8]

Australia Women and England Women qualified for the final, after India Women lost their first three matches of the series.[9][10] In the final, Australia Women beat England Women by 57 runs to win the series. In the match, Australia Women scored 209 runs, the highest team total in a WT20I fixture.[11][12] Australia Women also set a new record for the most fours scored in a Twenty20 International by any side, male or female, with 32 boundaries.[13]

With nine wickets at an average of 12.33, the series leading wicket taker, Australian Megan Schutt, was named player of the series.[1][3][14]
