On the auspicious occasion of ‘Bhai Dooj’ Mithali Raj, captain of the Indian women’s cricket team, says that her elder brother Mithun Raj has always been a “supporter of most of the things” that make her happy.
“I was in Mumbai and I think he was in Visakhapatnam. He used to write me mails and call on the landline — mobile phones weren’t common at that time — motivating me to focus on my game,” says Mithali. “He said that he’d take care of the rest. I still remember how he’d say that he was there for me.”
