ICC Women's World Cup

ICC Women's World Cup

Indian women's cricket team received a rousing reception on their arrival at a city hotel yesterday.

A state unit representative from west zone, who will be present at the SGM, has said, "I will propose that the cash award should be hiked to Rs 60 lakh for the players and Rs 30 lakh for the support staff".

Though they didn't bring the cup home, they certainly inspired millions. "In 2005, women's cricket was not under the BCCI, so the reception then was [quieter]. But yet your team performed well and the whole nation watched your performance", the release quoted him as saying.

"They always deserved it, now because of broadcasting and televising of the game it is more, coming under BCCI has made a difference". "T20 and ODI are ideal platforms to promote women's cricket", she said, though aware that she has played only 10 Tests in her 18-year-old career.

Skipper Mithali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur and Punam Raut stole the thunder in the just-concluded Women's World Cup in England. "After going through the World Cup and the way women's cricket has responded and improved the standard, they are taking it to different level, scoring more than 300 plus".
