Mithali Raj, the Indian women’s cricket team captain for the One Day format, wrote to the Board of Cricket Control of India, accusing Committee of Administrators member.
In the letter, she accused the COA member and former player Diana Edulji of bias.
It need be mentioned that Mithali Raj was dropped from the semi-final against England in the ICC Women’s World T20.
A controversy had erupted since the experienced batsman’s exclusion from the team and the team’s subsequent exit from the tournament.
Raj slammed the team coach Ramesh Powar for humiliating her in her first reaction to the development.
In a letter she shot off to the BCCI, she said that “a few people in power are out to destroy me”.
She wrote,”For the first time in a 20 year long career, I felt deflated, depressed and let down. I am forced to think if my services to my country are of any value.”
She added that, ‘To put things in perspective, I have always reposed faith in Diana Edulji and have always respected her and her position as a member of the COA. Never did I think she will use her position against me, more after hearing what all I had to go through in the Caribbean as I had spoken to her about it.’>
