This is Mithali

Another moment has been etched in the history of women’s cricket and it is none other than Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj who has done us proud by becoming the highest run scorer – surpassing England’s Charlotte Edwards’ 5992 and becoming the first woman to breach the 6,000 run mark – in the one day format. Donning the blue jersey since 1999, the captain from Rajasthan has played a number of match winning innings and today holds an important role in the team. After playing under a number of captains, Mithali’s prowess and focus toward the game awarded her the captain’s role.rVery few knew about Mithali. In fact many didn’t even know Mithali Raj was the captain of Indian women’s cricket team, let alone her records. It is not mere ignorance but the obsession which we show toward men’s cricket that has overshadowed any other form of cricket. Even though it may sound sexist, the fact is Indian society is far from having the same opinion on men’s and women’s cricket.rIntriguingly our eves have been performing excellently in the ongoing World Cup in England. When India took a severe thrashing from Pakistan in ICC trophy, the eves walloped the team in green jersey in a way that made big headlines. Its about time their efforts are recognised.
