Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote to former Indian batter Mithali Raj to congratulate her on a glorious career in international cricket spanning two decades.

Test and ODI captain of the Indian women’s national cricket team, Mithali Raj, announced her retirement from international cricket on June 8. “Mithali Raj Ji, A few weeks ago, you announced your retirement from all formats of cricket, leaving fans very disheartened. First and foremost, I join crores of Indians in congratulating you on an extremely successful career, in which you made the nation proud throughout,” said Modi in his letter. “You have served Indian cricket for over two decades. You are blessed with the necessary talent, tenacity and

transformative edge needed to excel over the years. This zeal has not only helped you, but also inspired several other budding sportspersons,” he added.

“But, at the same time, your success is beyond statistics and records. You are a trend-setter, an athlete, who has broken many a glass ceiling and a phenomenal source of motivation for others,” he added.

PM Modi lauded Raj’s leadership skills, terming them as ‘exceptional’. “You have mentored and groomed countless cricketers during your captaincy. I can not forget the 2017 World Cup Finals in which our team came very close to victory. During those tense moments, your calm and composed demeanour was appreciated by everyone,” he added.
