PM Modi's interacts with Indian Women cricket team

England's Heather Knight and India's Mithali Raj pose with the trophy

The Board of Control for Cricket in India, however, since taking over women's cricket in 2006, has largely been reluctant to entertain any thoughts of mooting such a league and remains tight-lipped about a possibility in the near future.

Praising the railways for their support, Raj said that it was the only institution that supported women cricketers.

The 34-year-old credited BCCI for making the difference to women's cricket.

The former BCCI chief further asserted that the Women in Blue will come out with more improved performance if they are provided with more exposure and facilities.

The team returned from London after their splendid performance in the recently concluded Women's World Cup, ending as Runners-Up.

'I always believed if more matches are televised we can attract more people, ' said Raj, who became the leading runscorer in women's One-day Internationals during the event.

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. It is probably because of the leagues in Australia and England.

However, she put the ball in the BCCI's court to decide on the IPL.

After England won the world cup, a picture of their wicketkeeper-batsman Sarah Taylor went viral on social networking websites.

"Telling the players that they had not "lost", the Prime Minister said that 125 crore Indians carried their defeat in the final, on their shoulders, and this was, in fact, their greatest victory", a release from Prime Minister's Office read. "The captain is what the team is". When asked who is natural replacement for Mithali as leader, Diana said "Harmanpreet has done it in the past".

"Definitely, a win would have felt better but I am happy with their effort".
