Mithali Raj to Retire After Playing ICC Women’s World Cup 2022
One of the legends of women’s cricket is Mithali Raj. India’s ODI captain Mithali Raj says she will retire from cricket after playing in the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022. Mithali Raj was speaking at the unveiling of the virtual package of her book ‘1971: The Beginning of India’s Cricketing Greatness’.
Mithali Raj has been playing cricket since her debut in 1999. She has been in the international arena for 21 years. The 36-year-old cricketer recently reached the milestone of 6,000 runs as the first woman cricketer in ODIs and 10,000 runs as the second woman cricketer in all.
This colorful career is coming to an end at the end of the 2022 Women’s World Cup. “It’s been 21 years in international cricket and I know the 2022 World Cup is going to be my last,” Mithali Raj said. We are going through a difficult time (coronavirus situation). But in the meantime, I have to continue working on fitness. There will be very few tours before the World Cup. So it is important to be in a very stable and emotional state at this time.
