India’s History in T20

Indian women last played the T20 World Cup in 2018 at the West Indies. However, more than their performance in the tournament, the country’s attention was grabbed by what followed after the team’s exit.

The exclusion of Mithali Raj in the semifinals was termed as the reason for the team’s loss. The exit was followed by a heated media exchange with Raj and the then coach Ramesh Powar at the centre of it all. While the ODI captain accused Powar of doubting her patriotism, the latter claimed that Mithali ‘blackmailed’ him for a position in the team.

The episode culminated with BCCI deciding to not renew Powar’s contract and Raj retained her place as the captain.
