With Women’s Day approaching, our Indian woman cricketer, Mithali Raj has shared a video of social media displaying her batting in a saree.
The video has been catching fire with Mithali hitting fine strokes in the Traditional Indian Attire. She is the same cricketer who guided the Indian team to the final of the 2017 Women’s Cricket World Cup.
She shared the video to send a special message to all the superwomen out there who will be appearing in the T20 World Cup final against Australia on Sunday.
“Let’s show the world that we can do it too. Come on, Team India, let’s bring the trophy home,” she said.
Having been posted ahead of Women’s Day, the video also celebrates Mithali having lived life on her terms. “Be a lady, they said,” reads a caption on the video as Mithali bats in a saree.
The text further says, “Every saree talks more than you and I know! It never tells you to fit in, it makes you stand out. This Women’s day, #StartSomethingPriceless and show the world that we can do it too. It’s time you start living life #OnYourTerms.”
Raj has been titled to be the highest run-scorer in women’s international cricket and is the only woman to have had an international career lasting more than 20 years. She retired from the T20 format in 2019 to focus on ODIs.
