Alice Davidson-Richards withdrew from the squad and remained in the UK following a family bereavement while Thunder’s Liberty Heap has returned home after fracturing her clavicle. She will see a specialist to plan next stages of her treatment.
Tash Farrant will remain in Oman with the England Women senior group as she continues her return to competitive bowling.
Leading the England Women A squad as head coach for the A series in India, as he has done across the preparation phase in Oman, is fielding and wicket keeping performance coach Michael Bates.
England Women A head coach Bates said: “We’re all thoroughly looking forward to the forthcoming T20 fixtures in India.
“We’ve enjoyed a very productive camp in Oman; the group have trained well, worked hard and really come together as a team.
“It’s been brilliant exposure for the England Women A players to have the opportunity to work alongside the England Women performance coaches as well as integrating with the senior players. It’s brought another element to our preparation and has enhanced the growth of the group.
“These three fixtures against India A will be a great way of testing our skills and our ability to compete and will undoubtedly provide another exciting learning opportunity for the players.”
