Mithali and cricket

The captain of the women’s cricket team has been catching a lot of attention with her performance on the field. She has been the highest run scorer for the country this year. She was very happy with the rousing welcome the team received at the Mumbai airport. Mithali has been playing cricket for the past 17 years and is now working on her autobiography. There is also a film to be made on her life. She says that even though women have become career oriented, they bow out due to family pressure.

The life of a sports person is usually short and for women it is worse because they have to juggle with marriage and family as well. She said she would like to see an IPL for women as well. She is also open to the idea of a mixed cricket team. Besides being one of the 100 most influential women in the world, this down to earth lass is also the highest run scorer in the world. We wish her all the best and hope all her dreams cone true both on the field and off it as well.
