Hope India Lift the Trophy this time: Mithali
Mithali, who retired from international T20 cricket last year, said, “The 2021 world-class competition will obviously be my last World Cup and I hope India lift the trophy. Apart from being a major achievement for the team, the victory of the World Cup will help advance women’s cricket in India. We saw that the 2017 World Cup also had a positive impact. The victory of the World Cup will inspire many more young girls. Hopefully, the team will go one step ahead.”
