Mithali Raj, India’s most capped ODI cricketer and former captain, has announced her retirement from international cricket. Raj, who is 39 years old, made her ODI debut in 1999 and went on to play 232 matches, scoring 7805 runs. She is the highest run-scorer in women’s ODI cricket and also holds the record for most centuries (6) and half-centuries (64).

Raj announced her retirement on social media, saying that she wanted to “focus on my other interests and spend more time with my family.” She also said that she wanted to “help young girls in their cricketing journey.”

Raj’s retirement is a major loss for Indian cricket. She was a role model for millions of young girls and women across the country. She was also a mentor to many of the current Indian players.

Raj’s retirement comes at a time when Indian women’s cricket is on the rise. The team recently reached the final of the Women’s World Cup, where they lost to Australia. Raj’s retirement will be a challenge for the team, but they will be looking to build on their recent success in the years to come.

Raj’s retirement is a significant moment in the history of Indian cricket. She was a pioneer for women’s cricket in the country and her legacy will live on for many years to come.
