Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj on Tuesday said she did not expect such a grand response in her team’s performance.

The ongoing tournament have been tossy tovvy but she hopes the support would continue in future.

In her words,she said “I did not expect that there will be such a reception in India. We lost the match (final) and as a team, we were all very sad,” she told reporters here on the sidelines of an event.


“But, this appreciation and positive feedback, from Prime Minister to the Chief Minister (of Telangana), it’s been really nice. Because, all these years, nobody gave us this kind of acknowledgement,” she said.
