"The way the girls have played, Indian and other teams have put up good standard of cricket in World Cup and it has given impetus to women cricket globally, it has given us more positive feedback". The current women's team squad has as many as 10 girls from the Railways including the captain Mithali Raj and Kaur.

It has been learnt that Committee of Administrators chief Vinod Rai wants a committee to be formed that will look into the pay hike and central contracts of the women cricketers. "I still feel that I have 2-3 years to serve the team and for this country". "I was asking Diana Eduljee (former India Captain) about the time she started playing, she told me that she started in 1971". "From Rio Olympics to Paralympics and in games like hockey, wrestling, badminton, and now the splendid performance in the Women's World Cup, Indian women are leading the way in the global sporting arena". I think Yami Gautam can do justice to the film.

The MoS for Railways Rajen Gohain and chairman Railway Board AK Mital were also present on this occasion. "Now is the time to start some type of league and involve domestic players", said Mithali Raj.

"Our women's cricket team has done exceedingly well and any form of appreciation will be less for them".

Unlike the men's team whose bilateral tour diary is choc- a-bloc till December 2018, the same does not apply for the women's team despite being under the aegis of BCCI since 2006. "It's like reserving the entire train itself", said Prabhu amidst applause.

Mithali is the only cricketer who led the women's cricket team to the finals of the World Cup twice.

Commenting on her future at the worldwide cricket, the 34-year-old skipper said: "As a player you want to continue but it all boils down to fitness and form". Mithali was also asked to react to the recent criticism of the Railways with regards to catering, which she sidestepped.
