Radhika Marwah, Associate Commissioning Editor at Penguin Random House India, says, “Mithali Raj is a remarkable role model and is testament to the virtues of perseverance and hard work. She is hugely admired the world over for her talent, grit, and leadership on the field, and most strikingly remains a very grounded and introspective person.”
The powerful sporting icon has making frequent headlines this year. She captained the team to the World Cup final in England.
In fact, Raj has been the backbone of Indian women’s cricket. She led the team to two World Cup finals. The 2017 Women’s World Cup in England was India’s best performance ever under Raj’s guidance. Arguably, she has put Indian women’s cricket on the centre stage.
