Mithali had earlier called for a women's IPL to help the Indian girls cope up with high-pressure situations, especially after the women-in-blue squandered a great start to narrowly lose Sunday's World Cup final by nine runs against hosts England at the Lord's. <strong>ALSO READ: <a title="Mithali Raj to be gifted BMW in Hyderabad" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/mithali-raj-to-be-gifted-bmw-in-hyderabad-627837">Mithali Raj to be gifted BMW in Hyderabad</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>When the same question was put to the 34-year-old right-hander after the team landed here on Wednesday, she said: "If something like this is started in India, it will help players get exposure but it's up to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)," she said. <p></p> <p></p>Mithali, however believed that their performance in the World Cup is just the beginning of good times for women's cricket in India. The Indian eves outclassed pre-tournament favourites Australia in the semi-final and before that thrashed New Zealand by 186 runs to reach the knock-outs. <p></p> <p></p>"It is just the beginning of good times for women's cricket. The win over England in the first match was a big boost for the team," she said. <p></p> <p></p>"I can proudly say that I have led the team well," Mithali said, summing up her own tournament. "The captain is what the team is."
