It is beginning of good times for women's cricket: Mithali Raj

Posted July 29, 2017

He also congratulated Raj for breaking the record for most runs in global cricket and being the first player in women's cricket to score 6,000 runs. Mithali has been playing for India since she was 16 and has regularly performed well for the team.

The players were felicitated by Fadnavis at Vidhan Bhawan.

"It's just not the Indian team, but also the other teams that put up very good standard of play throughout the World Cup; and that has actually provided an impetus (for the development of the women's game) globally", she said. "No one knows what happens in the next four years as the next 50-over World Cup is in 2021".

For Jhulan, who claimed 3/23 to restrict England to 228/7 in the final, there will be a few months' break now before India set its sight on next year's Women's World Twenty20 in the West Indies.

To recognise her achievements V Chamundeswaranath, businessman and former chairman of the Andhra Cricket Association has announced that he will gift her a brand new BMW vehicle once she returns to her hometown Hyderabad, Telangana. "Next year, we have World Twenty20 and we will prepare for that as a team", she said. Nearly all faced misogyny from the days of gully cricket well into their professional lives. There must be a proper balance between Tests and limited overs cricket but the Indian board alone can't do it.

This was, according to Mithali, her fifth and probably final World Cup. We thought you would surely win in the final too. "I am proud that we lost after giving a fight", she added.

"Today I can proudly say that it's because of the team that we did well".

"I also watched the match".

Besides announcing a cash prize of Rs 25 lakhs to Coach Murthy, the CM also announced Rs one crore cash prize for Ms Mithali Raj and said 600 sq yds house plot will be given to her in Banjara Hills.
