Indian Women’s cricket team skipper Mithali Raj has been an asset to the Indian team over the past decade, and a half and her achievements have been the testimony to her hard work and dedication which she has put in for all these years. Under her captaincy, India qualified for the final of the Women’s World Cup and was on the verge of creating history by winning their 1st ever title, but it wasn’t to be as England staged a dramatic comeback to seal the clash by nine runs.

The stylish right-handed batswoman during an exclusive interview with Sportzwiki revealed certain aspects of her game and also on the need of women’s IPL. She also added the fact that biopic on her might be a good option going forward.

When asked whether this is the right time for IPL, Raj said,

“It would be good to start with IPL sooner than later. But I feel a lot needs to be done on the grassroots level. So if the board starts with the planning as of now, it would still take 2-3 years. The effort from the board would encourage, improve and increase the number of players in women’s cricket.”

When asked about the idea of a biopic on her, Mithali replied positively.

“Biopic is a good option. It had done well with Dhoni and Milkha Singh. Biopic shows the hard work which had been put in by the athletes. It also shows the failures and struggles the athletes have gone through. It should be delivering the message in the right spirit and encourage many women to come up and live their dream.”

Meanwhile yesterday the Australian men’s team faced a mishap while returning from the Buraspara Stadium in Guwahati to their team hotel. Stone was pelted towards their bus which broke the right side of the front glass. Fortunately, none was injured. When asked about the security of the women’s team especially after yesterday’s incident Mithali conceded the fact that security is a big concern.

“Obviously, security is a big concern. What happened, happened in a bad taste. Shouldn’t have taken place. The bad behaviour must not be accepted. The games security should remain intact,” Mithali concluded.
