Yeh ladki ek din India ke liye khelegi A young girl reluctantly accompanies her elder brother for his crack-of-dawn cricket practice. A 16-year-old smashes a an unbeaten 114 runs in her debut against Ireland. Mithali Raj is the highest run getter in international women’s cricket. When the Indian women’s cricket team made it to the finals in the 2017 ICC World Cup, the country put Mithali on a pedestal and marveled at the record-breaking maverick. But here was a player who had been playing for nearly two decades, quietly persevering at a game which brought her little recognition with a fierceness and determination which is almost chilling. This book chronicles the journey of the greatest woman cricketer in the world—the struggles, the dressing room dynamics, debilitating setbacks, sweat, tears, and the unadulterated joy of playing for your country. Shockingly honest, tender, and goose bump-inducing, Unguarded is a treat not just for cricket-lovers but anyone looking for inspiration.
