After India qualified, Mithali had also congratulated the Women in Blue for creating history by making it to the summit showdown of the showpiece event for the very first time.

“As an Indian, I am thrilled India has made it to the finals. But as a cricketer, I feel for the English girls. I’d never want to find myself or my team in that situation. But the rules are such and it is what it is. Congratulations girls. This is big. #INDvENG #T20WC,” she had tweeted.
