Mithali—who represented India in over 200 matches—on June 8, had announced her retirement from all forms of international cricket. “Today is the day I retire from all forms of international cricket,” the Indian cricketer said in her statement and she further added, “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.”
Pannu on her retirement shared a photo of her with Mithali and wrote, “Youngest ODI captain for the Indian cricket team. The only Indian cricketer to captain the team in 4 world cups and reach finals twice! Youngest cricketer to score 200 in a test match. Highest scoring Indian cricketer in the debut international match.”
Pannu then added, “The only Indian cricketer to score 7 consecutive 50s in ODI… 23 years from hustle to glory. Some personalities and their achievements are gender agnostic. You changed the game, now it’s our turn to change the perspective! Etched in history OUR CAPTAIN forever @mithaliraj! On to the next innings of life.”
On the work front, the Looop Lapeta actor will now appear in films Dobaaraa, Blurr, Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan? and Dunki lined up in the pipeline.
