IND vs. ENG: Mittali Raj gave a proper answer to those who questioned the strike rate

Indian women’s captain Mithali Raj made history in the third ODI against England. In a fitting reply to those who questioned his strike rate, he said that after playing so long, there was no need for proof from people. Mithali scored an unbeaten 75 off 86 balls to take India by four wickets in the third and final ODI of the series. During this innings, Mithali became the highest scorer in all forms of women’s cricket.

At a post-match virtual press conference, when asked about criticism of his strike rate, he said: ‘I read about the criticism of the strike rate. I mentioned this before because I don’t need proof from people. I have been playing for a long time and I know I have a special responsibility on the team. It is not my intention to please people. I came here to play the role that the team’s management has played for me. When you are chasing, you rely on your own strong team rather than selecting bowlers to score runs.

Mithali said his appetite for scoring was the same as it was 22 years ago and was trying to take his batting to new heights for next year’s one-day World Cup in New Zealand. Mithali, who made his international debut against Ireland at Milton Cayenne on 26 June 1999, said the way things had progressed was not easy. It had its own trials and challenges. I have always believed that exams have a purpose.

“I thought it was enough for a variety of reasons, but I kept playing and now I have been in international cricket for 22 years. But the appetite for runs has not subsided. I still have the same passion. There are some dimensions I want to add to my batting.

Mithali has retired from T20 cricket in 2019 and she has already indicated that the Women’s World Cup will be held in New Zealand from March 4 to April 3, 2022. The 38-year-old is enjoying her role on the batting line and mentoring other players. He said, ‘Batting has always been an important part of me in the team. The character handed to me years ago. Dealing with the responsibility of the batting unit and decorating the innings. You have a great picture in front of you to build innings with other batsmen chasing the target. I am able to maintain control over the game. It benefits me and the other young women on the team. This will help keep the team going while you are in the crease.

Mithali shared a crucial partnership of 50 runs for the seventh wicket with all-rounder Sneh Rana. “Friendship is important to Rana because that partnership is important. Of course, we wanted a player in that position. He can play long shots and bowl some overs. So it is good to be included in the team.

Mithali hopes deputy captain and captain of the T20 team, Harmanpreet Kaur, will return to the farm soon. That said, it can happen to any player. Sometimes you are not on the farm but as a team you have to support the player who won the match. We know he won games for us. Now they need support from the team.
