Former India captain Shantha Rangaswamy calls Mithali Raj Sachin Tendulkar of women’s cricket

Former India captain Shantha Rangaswamy has named India’s former Test and One Day captain Mithali Raj as Sachin Tendulkar of women’s cricket. He said his record of scoring the most runs in international cricket will stay with him. The record for most runs in ODIs is already recorded in Mithali’s name. He broke the record of former England captain Charlotte Edwards, who scored the most runs of all formats on Saturday. These two players alone have made over 10,000 runs in international women’s cricket.

India’s Test and ODI captain has scored 51.80 runs in 50 overs. Shantha, a member of the Apex Council of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), told PTI, “Her records tell the whole story. Her achievements are equal to those of the great Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar. Mithali scored a half-century on Saturday to help India win the third ODI against England.

Mithali Raj says the hunger for runs after 22 years is the biggest achievement in women’s cricket.

“Strike rate is important only when all batsmen perform well. Except yesterday, she did not get the support of any other batsmen in the series. If she was not there, the team would have struggled to reach 200. All-rounder Deepti Sharma could be dropped to third place,” Shantan said. Routh and Jemima Rodriguez went out to bat at this number for the remaining two matches but they failed to make an impact. ”He is still young and will soon start to run. Poonam Raut also played well against South Africa but Deepti could be a better choice if he thinks a change in number three is needed, ”Shanta said.
