Mithali, who has played just 10 Tests in her 18-year long worldwide career also stressed the importance of playing the traditional format, which she termed as "ultimate test" for any cricketer.

A state unit representative from west zone, who will be present at the SGM, has said, "I will propose that the cash award should be hiked to Rs 60 lakh for the players and Rs 30 lakh for the support staff".

Mithali also hailed her side for giving a fight before narrowly going down in the final against England. But yet your team performed well and the whole nation watched your performance, the CM said."I have also watched the match".

"I hope the BCCI also considers such a tournament here where we can share the dressing room with the foreign players and learn a lot", she added.

The Telangana government has announced a cash prize of Rs 1 crore and a house plot for skipper Mithali Raj.
