Many of Mithali's teammates have pointed her habit of reading books during the match. Acknowledging the quirk, the cricketer said, "When you are on the field, and everyone is looking up to you and the entire team to bring back the trophy, (then) it is not just about the game."

She further added, "So, it is necessary for us to stay focused... and we all have our own ways to ensure we give our best on the field. I read books to get rid of pressure during a match. It does help me to keep calm and encourage a good performance."

World's leading run-scorer in ODIs, Mithali has scored over 1000-run in the World Cup games. The determined woman led Indian team through Women's World Cup last year, taking her team to the finals, where they lost to England and became an overnight sensation.
