Former chief selector of the junior Indian cricket team, V Chamundeswaranath, who famously presented luxury cars to India’s Rio Olympics stars, has now confirmed that he will be awarding a BMW to Indian women’s team skipper Mithali Raj on her arrival to Hyderabad.
Chamundeswaranath had earlier gifted a Chevrolet car to Mithali way back in 2007 but this time, the all-time ODI top scorer in women’s cricket will be given another precious gift for her stupendous performances in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017.
“Mithali has been a great influence on Indian cricket. The way she has led the side is remarkable. For a number of years, she has been the leading light of the Indian women’s cricket,” Chamundeswaranath was quoted as saying by TOI.
“Our girls are performing quite well. We need to encourage women’s cricket in a big way. I think with their brilliant show in England they have brought a lot of attention to the women’s game. More girls will be inspired to take up cricket now,” Chamundeswaranath added.
