"For a number of years, she has been the leading light of the Indian women's cricket", he said in a report by The Times of India. One such name was Ekta Bisht, who spun a web around the best players of the world in the World Cup. A biopic should be made on Mithali Raj and I think Deepika Padukone will be a suitable candidate in the biopic.

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

Mithali, who has played just 10 Tests in her 18-year long global career also stressed the importance of playing the traditional format, which she termed as "ultimate test" for any cricketer.

"While it is a happy day for all Indians, it is really a matter of great pride for the Railways specially".

Prabhu further said that no one in the country ever imagined the level of success achieved by the women's team and it was their commitment and dedication that has brought them so far. But this is not the first time as I picked a five wicket haul against Pakistan early in my career as well.

Which was a bigger achievement - win against Pakistan or Australia in the semifinal? "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". "I am proud that we lost after giving a fight", she added.

All-rounder Harmanpreet Kaur and skipper Mithali Raj will also be given gazetted officers post.

"Our women's cricket team has done exceedingly well and any form of appreciation will be less for them".

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