Women will feature at the honours board of The Lord's after the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) approved the decision to introduce an ODI honours boards for both men's and women's cricketers. The team returned from London after their splendid performance in the recently concluded Women's World Cup, ending as Runners-Up.

Talking about the fast-bowling talent in India - a nation whose brand of cricket doesn't quite include the art as one of its core traits - Goswami was optimistic about players like Mansi Joshi, Shikha Pandey, and felt that the road ahead looked positive for the Indian bowling attack.

For sisters Manya and Siddhi Mishra, getting new cricket bats was as exciting as the BMW auto would have been for captain Mithali Raj after Team India's second place finish at the ICC Women's World Cup in England last week. Their win over the Australians in the semi-final was a sign of their coming of age, the team showing the hunger to win like they never did before, and were in control for the most part in the final.

Despite losing the match by mere 9 runs, everyone admired the girls for their priceless efforts during the vital match.

"I can proudly say that I have led the team well", Mithali said, summing up her own tournament.

The minister acknowledged their success had initiated a wind of change in the Indian cricket. He had also tweeted soon after the match to hail the team's performance. The others players that work for the railways are Ekta Bisht, Punam Raut, Veda Krishnamurthy, Poonam Yadav, Sushma Verma, Mona Mesharm, Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Nuzhat Parween. Unfortunately, Mansi did not get too many chances in this tournament, but I definitely have a lot of faith in her because she has a spark.

Commenting on her future at the worldwide cricket, the 34-year-old skipper said: "As a player you want to continue but it all boils down to fitness and form".
