The fabulous cricketer of the Women’s tournament, Mithali Raj, was famous for hitting the biggest shots in the death overs to climb the highest records in cricket, and she did it so well, as we can see all the records of cricket in which she performed.
Mithali Raj was the leading run-scorer in the Women’s ODIs in which she has created around 7805 runs at an average of 50.68 in 232 matches played for India. She had also led the India team in the ICC Women’s World Cup earlier in recent years against New Zealand. But unfortunately, Team India failed to qualify for the semi-finals. However, the Indian team has performed admirably under the captaincy of Mithali Raj.
But it is very difficult for fans to accept that Mithali Raj will not play much cricket from now onwards after her retirement. She shared her retirement statement via social media with her fans on Wednesday. She has written that I set out as a little girl on the journey to wear the blue jersey of India to represent my country, which is a very honorable thing for me. The journey in cricket has been full of ups and downs, as well as some unique experiences. 23 years will be etched in my memories of life, as I enjoyed a lot of it. Thank you for your support, Mithali wrote in the statement of her retirement.
MS Dhoni was the one who hit big shots of sixers to win the ICC World Cup for India in 2011, according to an interview when she had scored brilliant runs for her representative team. After that, she concentrated on her game to score similar to MS Dhoni in cricket. Mithali stated, “I want to be like MS Dhoni and hit a big sixer as he did for India to win the World Cup in 2011.”
