ICC Hall of fame and Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar took to his Twitter and penned his heartiest wishes for cricketer Mithali Raj on her 37th birthday on December 3. Tendulkar posted a picture himself with Mithali Raj and wished her good luck for the upcoming tournaments.

Mithali Raj's career so far

Mithali Raj is one of the most diligent servants of Indian cricket. She has played a vital role in the rise of the women's game in a country that has, for long, been obsessed over their male counterparts. From shutting down gender-biased reporters to disapproving comparisons between male and female cricketers, the Indian captain Mithali Raj (in Tests & ODIs) has helped her teammates in carving their own niche in the sport.

The ICC tweeted some of her stats and records as they wished the ace cricketer.
