After beating England , Mithali Raj says that “It’s important that you get a start like that. Brilliant p’ship between the two. Since I had batted in the first innings, I knew the wicket wasn’t assisting the bowlers. So it was important for the spinners to bowl in the right areas. Since both the batters were middling it well, it made sense to take the batting powerplay when they were set.”
