As finals are nearing, there are certain points I need to remind you about. These women are powerful, play brilliantly and have actually managed to gain the attention of Indians. The crowd is eagerly watching every match and such recognition is what is required. It helps us as a Nation to take baby steps towards eradicating gender discrimination. While Smriti and Harmanpreet Kaur are taking the challenge to another level, Mithali Raj turns out to be the ultimate captain cool. Here are things you need to know about the 15 women in Blue:
1. Mithali Raj: Besides being the Captain and backbone of the team, she is the second highest run scorer and is the second woman cricketer to surpass the 5,500 run mark.
2. Harmanpreet Kaur: The vice-captain of the Indian team is now the Nation’s favourite for creating a history of historical 171 runs from 115 balls.
