Mithali has been one of the finest Indian players in the women’s cricket team and became the only female cricketer whose career lasted for more than 20 years.
She retired from T20Is in 2019 to focus on the ODIs.
The Indian women’s team is in the final of the World T20 and will play Australia in the title clash in Sunday in Melbourne. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led Indian side is unbeaten in the tournament.
They defeated Bangladesh, Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand in the group stage while the semi-final against England was washed out due to rain taking India in the final as they finished as table-toppers.
Raj has played 209 ODIs for India so far and has scored over 6000 runs at an average of 50.64 including seven tons for India. In T20Is, the right-handed batter played 89 matches scoring 2364 runs at an average of 37.52.
Mithali also represented India in Tests playing ten matches for the side and scoring 663 runs.
