Women's World Cup Harmanpreet Kaur Mithali Ray Sports news Indian Express

Commenting on her future at the global cricket, the 34-year-old skipper said: "As a player you want to continue but it all boils down to fitness and form. Will felicitate @BCCIWomen World Cup team in a grand ceremony in Bhopal & award a prize of Rs. 50 lakhs". Along with captain Mithali Raj, the explosive batter answered the media during a brief interaction.

"We should start straightaway preparing for the World T20 scheduled next year", Mithali said.

"While it is a happy day for all Indians, it is really a matter of great pride for the Railways specially. I still feel that I have 2-3 years to serve the team and for this country". There must be a proper balance between Tests and limited overs cricket but the Indian board alone can't do it.

Women will feature at the honours board of The Lord's after the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) approved the decision to introduce an ODI honours boards for both men's and women's cricketers.

Which was a bigger achievement - win against Pakistan or Australia in the semifinal? "In 2005, women's cricket was not under the BCCI, so the reception then was [quieter]".

"I can proudly say that I have led the team well", Mithali said, summing up her own tournament. Prabhu said that the Railways would continue to support the women's team and ensure that the working conditions are such that they don't come in the way of their practise, training or matches.

Harmanpreet: People recognise you and follow you only when you do well and that's what has happened here also.

"I hope the BCCI also considers such a tournament here where we can share the dressing room with the foreign players and learn a lot", she added.

The BCCI praising the good show of women in blue announced a sum of Rs 50 lakh for each player while individual performances didn't go unnoticed either.
