Mithali Raj is one of the colossus personages of Indian cricket. She is currently the leading run scorer in ODI cricket with 6373 runs in 194 matches at a stupendous average of 50.18. The right-hander accomplished the feat in the 2017 Women’s World Cup in England against Australia. The Rajasthan-born cricketer also boasts of 50 half-centuries and six centuries to her name.
In the T20I format, she became the first Indian to notch 2000 runs during last month’s Women’s Asia Cup in Malaysia. She surpassed even the likes of Virat Kohli en route the stupendous achievement. Apart from Raj, Jhulan Goswami is another experienced campaigner in the team. She is the leading wicket-taker in 50-overs format and is the only bowler with 200 plus wickets in women’s cricket.
Raj bursts into laughter
Both Raj and Goswami have been stalwarts of their cricket. They have had several intriguing moments on the cricket pitch. Recently, Mithali featured in the show named ‘Breakfast With Champions’ hosted by Gaurav Kapur and shared some hilarious moments of their camaraderie in the outfield. Raj isn’t someone who likes to talk. However, Goswami is chirpy and keeps shouting even from the boundary.
She generally screams ‘Come On’ in order to cheer up the bowlers. It sometimes makes others burst into laughter and Raj sportingly trolls her for the same antics. She also mentioned that Jhulan, who is no mug with the willow, prefers to bat with the lower order and the tail-enders keep on asking her “Didi yaar, aise daal rahi hai ball hi nahi dikh rahi hai, (I can’t properly see the ball she his delivering)
During the chat, the 35-year old also revealed that she doesn’t prefer playing T20Is. Rather, she would’ve played Test cricket more often had the national team got more opportunities in the format. Moreover, the veteran expressed her wish to train budding cricketers in fulfilling their dreams after hanging her boots from the sport.
