Australia's star all-rounder Tahlia McGrath, who has been named vice-captain for the upcoming five-match T20I series against India, is excited about her new assignment at the helm. 

After leading the Adelaide Strikers to their maiden Women's Big Bash League championship, McGrath is all set to lead the Women in Yellow alongside stand-in skipper Alyssa Healy against India. 

The Adelaide-born has been in ominous form in the last 12 months and played a key role in helping Australia clinch the Women's World Cup in New Zealand and the inaugural edition of the Commonwealth Games.

However, she failed to replicate her international success in the recently concluded Women's Big Bash League, where she managed only 244 runs in 14 innings before being ruled out for two games after sustaining a back injury. 

Later, the 26-year-old was restricted from bowling until the finals of the WBBL. However, now she has recovered from the injury and has been cleared to bowl in India in the upcoming series. 

Here's what McGrath said

"I'm very excited about that role, working closely alongside Midge and Shell. Nothing too many changes for me, and it's just taking some of the pressure off Midge and then being a bit more vocal amongst the group. I had a dream run, and it put me back into reality when I had that lull in form,

"Certainly, people are starting to look at me closer and work out my strengths and weaknesses. So, for me, it keeps evolving, keep chipping away at my game, and basically just wanting to be better every day. That's where it's at for me, and I'm pretty eager to get back to that run-scoring and contributing to the team."
