Was it made an issue? No. Because it doesn't come in the radar because it is not Mithali Raj," Mithali told <em>Cricbuzz </em>in an interview.

While Mithali didn't name the young Mumbaikar, but she had scored 11 off 22 balls in the T20 game against England which India lost narrowly. <p></p> <p></p>"The last England home series, a top-order [batter] had a strike rate of fifty. Did I make an issue? Was it made an issue? Still people are trolling me only! Because from the non-striker s end, I have to go and play. I played four dot balls and I was trolled. That's what I am saying it s not fair. If today I am turning out to be a rebel then you should know which situation has made me like that," said Mithali, who had scored 30 off 32 balls in that match. <p></p> <p></p>"I'm not saying the fact that I am the best T20 player. No! I know where I stand. But to unfairly pinpoint at the only thing you can pinpoint in my whole batting analysis then I can pick out numerous players in this current Indian team and I can question you. But why is it that only I am being questioned?"

That is very sad. I cannot name because I don't want to," Mithali said. <p></p> <p></p>Many in Indian cricketing circles feel that Mithali is pointing fingers at a former skipper, who is now a broadcaster also. <p></p> <p></p>"But as a player you feel sad that at this level you are being singled out for the fact that I stood up for myself. I have not done anything wrong standing up for myself. And I have not done anything wrong in reaching out to the board because I am under the board. I have not gone to the media. I reached out to them [board]," Mithali spoke about her letter where she had alleged that former coach Powar had ill-treated her in the West Indies. <p></p> <p></p>"Honestly, it will take time for me (to get over the controversy). It will because when things happen all of a sudden and you did not expect it to happen the way it has happened, it will take time for me to get over it. Yes, sometimes it still flashes. Eventually, I will get over it at some point."
