Mithali said, "T20 and ODI are still the ideal formats to market but it is only Test cricket that can give you quality players".

"It was heart-breaking to lose, especially since we knew that some players like captain Mithali Raj were likely playing their last world cup", Mansi said.Other than Mansi, Ekta Bisht from Almora was also part of the Indian cricket team.

Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao praised the team for the brilliant performances they put up in their journey to the finals.

According to a source close to Mithali, "A player can not be running around to get what was promised to her".

Prabhu further said that no one in the country ever imagined the level of success achieved by the women's team and it was their commitment and dedication that has brought them so far.

"They always deserved it, now because of broadcasting and televising of the game it is more, coming under BCCI has made a difference. I was wondering had we been under BCCI at that time what kind of reaction we would get", said Mithali.

Asked if an Indian Premier League for women would help their game, she replied in affirmative. It is probably because of the leagues in Australia and England.

"Even a couple of our players have improved, and really performed". "We couldn't reach Super Six (stage) at home in 2013 (World Cup) so we wanted to do well this time". Reiterating Prime Minister's vision to involve youth in sports, Goel said the idea is "Kheloge to Khiloge (Those who play, they shine)" to develop overall personality of the youth of India. I didn't expect it.

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