A beginning of good time for Women's cricket: Mithali Raj

"For a number of years, she has been the leading light of the Indian women's cricket", he said in a report by The Times of India. Congratulating the skipper, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao praised the team led by her for their scintillating performance in the World Cup.

Fast bowler Jhulan Goswami was today promoted by her employers, Air India following Indian women cricket team's impressive runner-up finish in the ICC World Cup.

Mithali had earlier called for a women's IPL to help the Indian girls cope up with high pressure situations, especially after the women-in-blue squandered a great start to narrowly lose Sunday's World Cup final by nine runs against hosts England at the Lord's.

Mithali, who has played just 10 Tests in her 18-year long global career also stressed the importance of playing the traditional format, which she termed as "ultimate test" for any cricketer.

"As a player grows and gains experience at the global level, each one of them becomes a leader in their own respect", MIthali said.

"As the game changes we have to be at the heart of all those changes, whether it is T20, one day or women's cricket because we are the home of cricket". "We had targetted a semi-final berth initially but they went beyond that. I always believed if more matches are televised we can attract more people", said Raj.
