Post Cup hype, BCCI yet to decide on women team's next fixture

It has been learnt that Committee of Administrators chief Vinod Rai wants a committee to be formed that will look into the pay hike and central contracts of the women cricketers.

"Recently, they (railways) have come up with a scheme of excellence where we get 330 days off to work on our game and that has really helped us to improve our individual games and given us more opportunities to work as a team", the cricketer said. "Harmanpreet is there now, there might be Deepti Sharma, Smriti Mandhana...you never know whose destiny takes them, but this bunch of players has the ability to take up the challenge whenever it's given to them", Mithali told reporters here during the BCCI's felicitation ceremony here. However, post the World Cup triumph, Gerald Corbett, the club's chairman, told that "Lord's is changing". "When you are speaking about IPL, that means it's not about exposure but also quality matches palatable for crowd", a BCCI official, who has worked with women's cricket, said today.

Prabhu further said that no one in the country ever imagined the level of success achieved by the women's team and it was their commitment and dedication that has brought them so far.

For years now, the honours board would feature only five-wicket hauls and centuries in Test cricket. In 2005 when we were not under BCCI we also got good reception. I feel that if I am calm and composed while going to bat, I will be able to play much better cricket.




"Playing in the Big Bash was a great experience for me and Smriti".

Vijay Goel applauding the girls said, "Our women's cricket team has done exceedingly well and any form of appreciation will be less for them".

"If one can recall after the India vs Australia series, played earlier this year ended, the CoA had announced a cash award of Rs 50 lakh for the Indian men's team".
