Indian women’s captain Mithali Raj scored an unbeaten 75 off 89 balls as India lost by four wickets in the third and final ODI on Saturday. During this innings, Mithali became the highest scorer in all forms of women’s cricket. 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 her international debut against Ireland at Milton Cayenne on 26 June 1999, said: “The way things have progressed, the journey has not been easy. It has its own trials and challenges. I have always believed that exams have a purpose.
He said, ‘I thought it was enough for a variety of reasons but I kept playing and now I am 22 years in international cricket, but the hunger for runs has not yet eased Huh.’ At a virtual press conference, he said, ‘I still have the same passion. Winning matches for India by coming to the field. As for my batting, I think there is still room for improvement and I’m working on it. There are a few dimensions I want to add to my batting.

Mithali 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. He was in charge of the batting unit and graced the innings.
Mithali said, ‘You have a good picture of the innings that other batsmen are chasing. 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 praised all-rounder Sneh Rana with whom he shared a crucial partnership of 50 runs for the seventh wicket.

“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 that T20 team vice-captain and captain Harmanpreet Kaur will return to the farm soon.
