Reportedly former india women's team skipper Mithali raj on Tuesday announced retirement from T20 Internationals in order to focus on the 2021 ODI World Cup to be held in new zealand. Meanwhile Mithali led india in 32 T20Is, including the three women's WT20 World Cups in 2012 (Sri Lanka), 2014 (bangladesh) and 2016 (india).
raj said in a statement issued by BCCI "After representing india in T20 internationals since 2006, I wish to retire from T20Is to focus my energies on readying myself for the 2021 One Day World Cup". She added "I thank the BCCI for their continuous support and wish the Indian T20 team good luck as they prepare for the home series against south AFRICA'>south africa women”. Furthermore she was also the captain in india women's first ever T20I played in Derby back in 2006. Since that win against england, raj played another 88 games in which she scored 2364 runs, the most by an Indian woman in T20Is.
Moreover Mithali finishes as the sixth highest run scorer in the women’s T20 game with the highest career average of 37.52 of any woman to have scored more than 500 runs. Perhaps those ahead of her in the women’s T20 game in terms of runs include Suzie Bates, Stafanie Taylor, Charlotte Edwards, Meg Lanning and Deandra Dottin.
