India’s ODI skipper Mithali Raj has a great idea for fans who feel bored after the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. The comeback season of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) met a fairytale end as they lifted the trophy for the third time. But the end of the 11th season of the cash-rich tournament has left a void in the lives of Indian cricket fans who are longing for some sports action.
Here’s what Mithali tweeted —
