Indian women cricketers are finally getting much-needed attention in our nation. The last few matches, as well as series, went really great for the women’s team and not just adults but also children are now aware of the names of the women cricketers.
Independence day is just a few days away and schools have already started organizing different events to celebrate this special day. One of the exciting events that schools organize is fancy dress competition. This one event allows you to be anything you want to for a day and that is why almost every child enjoys it.
This little girl from Gujarat had a fancy dress competition in her school. And guess what? She decided to become none other than the Indian women cricket team’s skipper, Mithali Raj.
Her father, Apoorva Ekbote decided to share this on Twitter. He shared a small clip of junior Mithali Raj and everyone on the internet is going “Awww” after watching it. Take a look at his tweet:

Social media has truly decreased the communication gap between celebrities and common people. Apoorva Ekbote’s tweet took no time to reach Mithali Raj. Luckily, Mithali posted a heart warming message for this little angel.
Here’s what the Indian women cricket team skipper said,
This is cute! 😀
May she achieve her endeavours in all the spheres of life! https://t.co/FKJRvWirDi
