A few hours after arriving to a rousing reception in the wee hours of Wednesday, Mithali Raj announced that her team making the final of the ICC Women's World Cup final, and the celebration of the achievement in India, is just "the beginning of good times for Indian women's cricket".

'It's overwhelming to see such kind of reception, it's first of kind for all of us, I faced kind of similar one in 2005, then we were not under BCCI, ' said Mithali, who guided India to the finals of the ICC Women's World Cup.

"As a player grows and gains experience at the worldwide level, each one of them becomes a leader in their own respect", Mithali said.

The emir of Qatar on Friday said he was prepared to engage in negotiations as long as his country's sovereignty was not violated. The Turkish president said he did not discuss the Turkish base in Qatar with Saudi Arabia or Kuwait in his meetings.

"We should start straightaway preparing for the World T20 scheduled next year", Mithali said.

"Mithali has been a great influence on Indian cricket". He also said that this will inspire the country's youth to take up cricket as well as other sports as a career option. There must be a proper balance between Tests and limited overs cricket but the Indian board alone can't do it.

It was also learnt that despite the growing demands for a Women's IPL, the BCCI would like to "wait and watch" primarily because there are not enough women cricketers around who can rub shoulders with the best in business.

"I can proudly say that I have led the team well", Mithali said, summing up her own tournament.

Vijay Goel applauding the girls said, "Our women's cricket team has done exceedingly well and any form of appreciation will be less for them".

Star batswoman Harmanpreet Kaur, who along with Smriti played the Women's Big Bash League previous year, seconded Mithali's call for an Indian Premier League-styled T20 tournament in India.
