Mithali Raj features on BBC's list of most influential women

The British Broadcasting Corporation, the BBC, on Wednesday, named Indian women's cricket team captain Mithali Raj as one of the most influential women in India.

Mithali is currently the highest run-getter in ODIs. She also led the team to the ICC Women's World Cup final in England, where they lost to host England.

 

The list has been inspired by the BBC 100 Women Challenge, which will be held in Delhi from October 9-13 where a team will look at the female illiteracy.

Other places hosting the 100 Women Challenge are: Silicon Valley from October 2nd–6th where a group will tackle the glass ceiling; safety on public transport will be the focus for the London and Nairobi team from October 16th-20th; and finally from October 23rd-27th women in Rio will consider sexism in sport.
