"We are thinking of allowing overseas players to participate in the proposed league", Edulji said on the sidelines of BCCI's felicitation ceremony here for the runners-up team.

Though they didn't bring the cup home, they certainly inspired millions. "The sooner it starts, the better it will be for women's cricket", Sharma said. Mithali has been playing for India since she was 16 and has regularly performed well for the team. "The broadcast and live telecast of the games - and, of course, coming under the BCCI - has made a huge difference".

DEHRADUN: Cricketer Mansi Joshi who was part of the Indian team that participated in the Women's Cricket World Cup in the United Kingdom has said that the team lost the final against England as it buckled under pressure.Mansi, who hails from Dehradun and returned to the city on Friday, told TOI, "We were unable to handle the pressure during the final and probably lost the match because of that". Sania said Mithali Raj has been performing amazingly for many years, she is an incredible ambassador for the game of cricket.

"Telling the players that they had not "lost", the Prime Minister said that 125 crore Indians carried their defeat in the final, on their shoulders, and this was, in fact, their greatest victory", a release from Prime Minister's Office read.

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

This was the second time that India made it to the finals of the tournament. "The captain is what the team is". At that time, I am sure she never would have imagined that one day Indian women will go and give such tough competition at the World Cup, doing so well. But I would have preferred to be a winning captain.
