ICC Women World Cup: Mithali Raj wants women’s IPL after loss in final
Mithali Raj has asked for women’s Indian Premier League. Raj said 'this is right time to “create the base” of a female equivalent to the Indian Premier League after her team lost the final against England in ICC Women World Cup 2017. Pressure got to India in the end, but the 34-year-old Raj, who later confirmed this has been her last World Cup appearance, said that would be less likely to happen if they had a tournament to match Australia’s Twenty20 Women’s Big Bash League or England’s equivalent Super League. “Everybody was very nervous and I think that resulted in our defeat,” Raj, the all-time leading run-scorer in women’s one-day internationals said.
