Mithali Raj Complete Bio & Career

Mithali Raj started her cricketing career by playing for Railways at the domestic competition. She then played with stars like Anjum Chopra, Purnima Rau, and Anju Jain for Air India. Today, she has unfolded as one of India's most reliable bats, scoring heavily in both Tests and one-dayers. Her serenity when at the crease and ability to score at a brisk pace make her a threatening customer to deal with. In addition to her capacity with the bat, Raj is also a more than handy part-time leg-spinner who can provide variety to any attack.
Raj has seized every single opportunity she has been given and impressed with her ability to score consistently. When the going gets tough, Mithali gets going, while batting in difficult conditions, she soldier on without being troubled.  She led the Indian Women to their first ever World Cup final in 2005, held in South Africa, where they met mighty Australia in the finals who were invincible. In 2006, she led the Indian side to their first-ever Test series victory in England and finished the year on a high by winning the Asia Cup for the second time in consecutive years and that too without losing a single game.
Mithali has been awarded the nickname, "Tendulkar of Indian women's cricket", as she is arguably the best Women Cricketer India has ever produced and statistically, too, she is currently the all-time highest run-scorer for India across formats, including ODIs, Tests, and T20Is.
For her performance on the field, she has been awarded Arjuna Award and Padma Shri by the Government of India for her contribution to the sport.
