Mithali Raj and team bowled over by the grand reception at home

'I always believed if more matches are televised we can attract more people, ' said Raj, who became the leading runscorer in women's One-day Internationals during the event.

The development means that England women pacer Anya Shrubsole's match-winning haul of 6-46 in the ICC Women's World Cup final against India on July 23 will feature when the new boards are installed. "No one expected us to reach the final and on that day, we restricted the home side to a decent total and then built a good partnership during the chase, which I take as a positive". "It is very important to promote women's Test matches but with the advent of T20 every cricket board wants to promote and market it in their own way".

"Girls would have enjoyed being received like that, it is just a beginning of good time for women's cricket".




Terming Mithila an 'incredible ambassador, ' said the 30-year-old.

'If you had asked me this question, a couple of years back, probably I would not (support the idea to have women's IPL), but (maybe) now since after going to the World Cup and the way they have responded and improved the standard of women's cricket, taking it to different level'. Sania said Mithali Raj has been performing amazingly for many years, she is an incredible ambassador for the game of cricket. So I am sure that if India has something like that, it will only help; even the domestic players would gain exposure to a good environment and have a chance to interact with worldwide cricketers. "I was asking Diana Eduljee (former India Captain) about the time she started playing, she told me that she started in 1971". It was captained by Mithali Raj who is from Railways and was the highest run scorer. I need to be in sync with coach and not with the others who were probably questioning my captaincy. "It's all credit to them".
