“We really need to play some-more games, either it’s T20, ODI to Test format since there has to be smoothness after what we have set after a World Cup. The play and a ICC are positively looking into it,” she added.

Stating that some-more hype and recognition needs to be combined during any shared series, Raj serve went on to add, “When there is any shared array or when India is hosting any series, there has to be an recognition that there is an general array function and people should come and watch us play in stadiums. Usually, that doesn’t happen,” she said.

“We should also inspire immature girls in schools to take adult a competition and have a propagandize team,” she concluded.

“I am not essay off personification a subsequent World Cup though we will have to get by these subsequent 3 years to get into a fourth year for that World Cup,” Raj had told PTI.
