Indian Women's Cricket Team Receives Immense Reception: After a great display of their talent in ICC Women's World Cup 2017 in England, Indian Women's Cricket team returned to India. Adding, "I really hope this appreciation that all the girls are getting continues because they deserve it". "Despite ending as runners-up, I feel that the women's team has won the finals because they have won the hearts of the entire country", Goel said.

Speaking about the development of the game skipper Mithali Raj recalled her struggles during the 90's and stated that facilities have improved now thanks to various stakeholders coming together and taking the game forward.

After Team India's stellar performance in the World Cup, the two sisters got new cricket bats as gift from their father.

They said that they felt proud, happy and inspired to know that the prime minister was following their progress, PMO said in a statement.

Prabhu declared team skipper Mithali Raj and her deputy Harmanpreet Kaur as gazetted officers and announced out-of-turn promotions to the other eight Railway players.

'I always believed if more matches are televised we can attract more people, ' said Raj, who became the leading runscorer in women's One-day Internationals during the event.

Asked if there should be a tournament like the Indian Premier League for women in India, Mithali said this was something for the Board of Control for Cricket in India to deal with. "I also want to congratulate the coaches, team managers and supporting staff of the team", he added. "Will felicitate @BCCIWomen World Cup team in a grand ceremony in Bhopal & award a prize of Rs. 50 lakhs". Meshram got three chances early in the tournament, but a lack of consistency meant that she lost her place to Krishnamurthy, who made the opportunities count with her big hitting. "You must ask this to the players who've just come into the side", said Raj.
