Mithali Raj, the greatest Indian cricketer, who retired from all forms of cricket on June 8th, has hinted at coming out of retirement. Since the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the Women’s IPL, the women’s cricket fraternity is excited to take part in it.
The former Indian skipper was asked if she would like to join Isa Guha and Frankie Mackay in ICC’s 100% Cricket podcast. She replied although the idea interests her but she has not taken any decision in regard. Moreover, she replied,
“I’m keeping that option open. I’ve not yet decided. There are a few more months to go before the women’s IPL happens. It would be lovely to be part of the first edition of the women’s IPL,”
Raj retired as the leading ODI cricketer alongside owning numerous records. Her participation in Women’s IPL will add more charms to the inaugural edition.
Notably, BCCI announced the tournament after multiple bashes fell in their lap following ‘less investment’ in Women’s cricket in comparison to men’s cricket.
