Harmanpreet Kaur lauds Mithali Raj’s contribution to cricket

New Delhi, July 24, 2020.

Indian T20I skipper Harmanpreet Kaur praised Indian ODI skipper Mithali Raj’s contribution to women’s cricket. She also added that there is no comparison at all.

Talking about the controversy that shook the world in 2018, Kaur said that it was due to some people whom she didn’t want to name and added that all is well between them.

There were such people, it’s not the right platform to take the names. Because they are the biggies, some very big cricketers. When a team reaches certain stature, such things happen. Mithali Di is a lot senior to me. I haven’t played half the amount of cricket she has played. She has been playing cricket for 20 years, there’s no comparison between her and me,” Harmanpreet told Harsha Bhogle in a conversation with Cricbuzz.

“I do not want to compare myself to her as I know that what she has given to women’s cricket, I would not have been able to contribute that even if I started playing cricket when she did. She has been contributing from a time when there was nothing for India’s women’s cricket. I started performing when I had a ready platform. Both of us never let any incident affect the team’s bonding.
