All Comm Games matches will be played at Edgbaston, a ground where Australia’s women have never won, including a defeat to England in the 1973 Women’s World Cup final, the inaugural event.

Australia have also had two drawn Tests at the venue, in 1963 and 1976, but have not played there since.

Edgbaston has been a fortress for England’s men’s team in recent times, although former men’s skipper Tim Paine derided that reputation ahead of the opening Test of the 2019 men’s Ashes, which the Australians won comfortably.

Nitschke, who has been an assistant with the team since 2018, will have the chance to audition for the top job on the tour.

The former Australia allrounder is also the head coach of the Perth Scorchers WBBL side that won the competition last summer, and will again lead the club in WBBL|08 this year before Australia’s next engagement in January 2023.

Mott had been at the helm since 2015 in a trophy-laden seven-year tenure that elevated Australia to an unprecedented era of dominance.

“The two series also present Shelley Nitschke with a great opportunity to lead the side having stepped into the interim role of head coach,” said Shawn Flegler, Australia women’s cricket Head of Performance and National Selector.

“We’re in a fortunate position to have some world-class coaches in our system, with both Shelley and assistant coach, Ben Sawyer, contributing to the team’s success over the last few years.”

Australia’s Commonwealth Games squad: Meg Lanning (c), Rachael Haynes (vc), Darcie Brown, Nicola Carey, Ashleigh Gardner, Grace Harris, Alyssa Healy, Jess Jonassen, Alana King, Tahlia McGrath, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Annabel Sutherland, Amanda-Jade Wellington
