No Problem Between Me and Mithali: Harmanpreet Kaur

India T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur has clarified that she has no problems with ODI skipper Mithali Raj after the latter was dropped from the team for the World T20 semi-final against England, which India went onto lose.

“I have met [Mithali] and spoken to her after all these events and we seemed to have moved on. I don’t think there has been any problem between me and Mithali. I can speak for myself. You have to speak to her and ask if she has a problem with me,” Kaur was quoted as saying by Mumbai Mirror.

"When you play at an international level, you are mature enough to not let these things affect you. At the end of the day, what matters is you are playing for your country. A team is like a family where there are troubles and such issues keep cropping up, but they shouldn't be taken personally," she added.

“I still feel that the situation should not have come to this but sometimes such things happen. I don’t think the issues should have been highlighted so much.” Kaur said.

Kaur, who is currently playing in the Women's Big Bash League in Australia, further said that it was important to have a similar league in India as it would give a platform to the younger players to showcase their talent.

"You have to create the depth (in talent). This can’t be used as an excuse to not have a women’s T20 league in India. Even if we don’t have (it now), one day we will have to make a start somewhere. You can’t be waiting for a day when other nations have reached a level where it becomes impossible to catch them,” she said.
