During her 20-year career, Mithali Raj has evoked parallels with Sachin Tendulkar for her prolific run-scoring. At 16, she debuted with an ODI century that set herself up as the cornerstone for Indian batting in the years to come; Raj is not only the highest scorer in the women's cricket but has displayed incredible resilience by being its most capped player as well. The 37-year-old, who has twice captained India within sniffing distance of the ODI World Cup (in 2005 and 2017), has now retired from T20s to focus on winning the 2021 edition. A biopic on Raj starring Taapsee Pannu will go on the floors in the middle of 2020.
