Mithali Raj receives special letter from PM Modi!!

Legendary Indian women’s cricket captain Mithali Raj took to her official social media account on Saturday to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi after receiving an encouraging letter from him. Mithali, who had a career span of two decades, said that she was ‘honoured’ and ‘proud’ to receive the letter from PM Modi himself.

Taking to her Twitter, Mithali Raj posted two different Tweets to highlight that it was a moment of ‘pride’ to receive words of encouragement from PM Modi, who has been a role model and inspiration for millions of Indians, including her.

She tweeted, “It’s a matter of singular honour & pride when one receives such warm encouragement from our Hon’ble PM Shri @narendramodi ji, who is a role model & inspiration for millions including me. I am overwhelmed by this thoughtfully worded acknowledgment of my contribution to cricket.

She added, “I will treasure this forever. I feel inspired and encouraged for my next chapter and will strive hard to live up to the expectations of our Hon’ble PM in contributing towards the growth of Indian sports.”

The 39-year-old on June 8 had announced her retirement. Mithali Raj has not only been one of the best batters for India but also in the entire world. Since making her debut as a teenager in 1999, Raj has smacked a total of 7,805 runs in 232 ODI games at a brilliant average of 50.7. In this time she has also hit seven centuries and 64 fifties in this format.
