Mithali Raj's unquestionable legacy in women's cricket remains after 22 years

Mithali Raj

Mithali Raj is a big name associated with Indian women's cricket for over 20 years. She has been a flag bearer of women's cricket and has contributed heavily to the women  team's success these years. She is one of the greatest ever to have represented the country at the highest level. On Sunday (June 27), the Indian women's team stalwart is likely to add another stone to her crown when she leads the side out against England in the first One-Day International in Bristol. Raj will become the first female cricketer to finish 22 years in ODI cricket, and the second overall after the cricket prodigy Sachin Tendulkar.

She made her ODI debut for India against Ireland when she was 16 years old in June 1999, and has since become an integral member of the Indian women's team in all formats. Over the last two decades, she has played a pivotal role in transforming the face of Indian women's cricket, and her legacy lives on as she continues her mission to make India world champions. The single significant achievement that has evaded the Indian women's team's ODI and Test skipper, who has accomplished practically everything there is to be at the greatest level.
