Last month, the Mithali Raj-led team Indian women performed phenomenally in the 8-team world tournament and reached the finals after 12 long years. They defeated the 6-time world champions Australia by 36 runs in and faced the English team in the finals. Unfortunately, they fell short by just 9 runs and lost the chance to script history.
