200 is just a number: Mithali

By The Assam Tribune

HAMILTON, Feb 1: Back in 1999, 16-year-old schoolgirl Mithali Raj was simply happy wearing the India colours for the first time and not much changed even after two decades as the coveted milestone of 200 ODIs �is just a number� for the 36-year-old legend.

Mithali made her ODI debut against England in Milton Keynes in January 1999 and on Friday became the first woman to complete in 200 matches in the 50-over format. Not to forget, she is the top run-getter in the world with 6622 runs.

�200 is just a number for me but it feels nice to come so far,� the unassuming India�s ODI captain said after completing a maiden 2-1 series win on New Zealand soil.

�I have seen different stages of (transformation) in women�s cricket across the globe since I made my debut way back in 1999 under IWCC (International Women�s Cricket Council). Coming under ICC, we could see the difference. I am just happy to represent the country for so long,� Mithali said.

For Mithali, it is a surreal feeling that she could continue for so long at the top level. � PTI
