Veteran India batter Mithali Raj has called time on her international career. She made the announcement through a statement on social media.
I set out as a little girl on the journey to wear the India blues
as representing your country is the highest honour. The
journey was full of highs and some lows. Each event taught
me something unique and the last 23 years have been the
most fulfilling, challenging & enjoyable years of my life.
Like all journeys, this one too must come to an end.
Today is the day I retire from all forms of International Cricket.
Each time I stepped on the field, I gave my very best with the
intent to help India win. I will always cherish the opportunity
given to me to represent the tricolour.
I feel now is the perfect time to call curtains on my playing
career as the team is in the capable hands of some very
talented young players and the future of Indian Cricket is
I’d like to thank the BCCI & Shri Jay Shah Sir (Honorary
Secretary, BCCI) for all the support I have received – first as a
player and then as the Captain of the Indian Women’s Cricket
It was an honour to have led the team for so many years. It
definitely shaped me as a person & hopefully helped shape
Indian Women’s Cricket as well.
This journey may have ended but another one beckons as l’d
love to stay involved in the game I love and contribute to the
growth of Women’s Cricket in India and world over.
Special mention to all my fans, thank you for all your love &
