Former Indian women's team captain Mithali Raj said that the women in blue are not taken lightly today because of the reputation they have built with their performances. 

She added that other teams come well prepared to play against India and beating the best sides such as Australia in the ODIs or England in the T20Is, has given the women confidence. 

She led the women's side to the finals twice in 2005 and 2017 but the ‘Women in Blue’ lost to Australia and England respectively. 

Mithali Raj announced her retirement from the shortest format after the T20 World Cup last year to help prolong her ODI career.
