All India women’s selection committee of the BCCI announced on Wednesday that Harleen Deol would replace India’s T20I skipper Harmanpreet Kaur in the Indian women’s ODI squad for the upcoming three-match One Day International (ODI) series against England starting on 22 February. The ODI series between India and England will be played at the iconic Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
Kaur has been ruled out of the ODI series against England due to an ankle injury. However, it is not confirmed if Harmanpreet Kaur will also miss the three-match T20I series, which will be played after the ODI series.

“Harmanpreet was unable to participate fully in the team training session because of pain and will now head to NCA in Bengaluru for rehab,” the statement further read.
