Mithali Raj accuses: People in power are trying to destroy me

Mithali Raj accuses, India’s captain in the ODI format, Mithali Raj has accused BCCI Committee of Administrators (CoA) member and former player Diana Edulji of bias in the fall out of her exclusion 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 by 8 wickets.

She has further hit out at 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 adds “few people in power are out to destroy me”.


She slammed Edulji, a former India captain, for defending the team’s decision to drop her. “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.

“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 to a few people in power who are out to destroy me and break my confidence,” she wrote in a letter to BCCI CEO Rahul Johri and Cricket Operations GM Saba Karim. “I would also like to point out that I have nothing against the T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur except for the fact that her call to support the decision of the coach to leave me out of the eleven was baffling and hurtful. I wanted to win the world cup for my country and it hurts me because we lost a golden opportunity.”


On Powar, she narrated a series of instances where she felt slighted by the coach. “For instance, walking off if I am sitting anywhere around, watching in the nets when others bat but choosing to walk away when I am batting in nets, if I try to go up to him to talk to start looking into his phone and keep walking. It was embarrassing and very evident to everyone that I was being humiliated. Yet I never lost my cool,” she said.
