PM Modi lauds Mithali Raj’s career, calls her an “inspiration”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that former India women’s skipper Mithali Raj is an inspiration to many and conveyed his best wishes to her retirement earlier this month.

Having made her debut as a 16-year-old in 1999, Mithali’s career spanned nearly 23 years across four different decades during which time she became the central cog in the growth of the women’s game in India and beyond.

“Her retirement from cricket has emotionally moved many sports lovers. Mithali has not only been an extraordinary player but has also been an inspiration to many players. I wish Mithali all the very best for her future,” the prime minister said.

Mithali finished her international career with a staggering 10,868 runs — the most in women’s cricket.
