The skipper of India’s women’s team Mithali Raj has a great idea for fans who are now feeling bored after the end of the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. The comeback season of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) met a fairytale end as they lifted the trophy for the third time in the history of the tournament. But the end of the 11th season of the cash-rich T20 extravaganza has left a void in the lives of Indian cricket fans who are longing for some sports action.
Here’s what Mithali tweeted — “Feeling the void after the IPL? We’re in Malaysia for the #Asiacup2018 🙂 #justsaying See you, India? 🏏 🇮🇳”.
