Mithali Raj- Pursuit Of Excellence!

Mithali Raj is one of the greatest batswomen to have ever played cricket. She is the highest run-scorer in women international cricket. She is a recipient of awards of the highest degrees- Arjuna Award, Padma Shri Award, Youth Sports Icon of Excellence Award, Vogue Sportsperson of the Year and BBC 100 Women list 2017. Her determination and drive for cricket is visible in her performance. She is popularly known as "Lady Sachin", although I personally dislike labelling her as "Lady Sachin" for the fact that she is much more than that, inspite of battling gender bias challenges and having to run a lonely ride to the top, she has proved to surpass all inequalities and create a special space for herself in the men dominated sports world. 

She has proved time and again that if one believes in themselves, they are unstoppable. She has created a consistency of sterling attitude and exuberant work ethic. She has the heart to hustle hard. Her approach is to wake up with a smile, with an assurance that she's going to enjoy accomplishing what others are too afraid to even try. For her excuses are useless and results are priceless. For her every run counts, every bit of junk food hurts, exercising and push-ups are lifeline and running is like breathing. For her its not a game but her life. 

Her valiant spirit has earned her great respect and a special recognition in the world of cricket. A right-handed batswoman, Raj has emerged as an incredible batting exports from India. She provides depth to any attack because she can chip in few arm over bowling leg-spinners. She also holds a unique track record of captaining the most matches for India in both WODI and T20I    

Being an inspiration for others is just a natural lifestyle for her. Her courage is not always visible but still can be felt deeply.
