Classical dancer turned cricketer, ruled the world of cricket for 23 years, Sachin also remained behind

Mithali Raj is the only Indian (women and men) cricketer to have played two ODI World Cup finals as a captain. However, his wish to become the world champion could not be fulfilled. The Indian women’s cricket team played the final of the 2005 World Cup under the leadership of Mithali Raj. Australia defeated India by 98 runs in the final held in Centurion, South Africa. After this, in July 2017, the Indian team under the captaincy of Mithali Raj reached the final of the Women’s World Cup. But, then England had ruined the aspirations of India to become the world champion. (AFP)
