And the 43-year-old former Indian batsman also mentioned about the gender equality, as Sachin believes expansion of women’s cricket is also a catalyst for gender equality and rights.

Sachin added, “The women cricketers have caught the fancy of cricket aficionados around the world with stellar performances and have increased their audience.”

“They have spawned interest in young girls to play the sport and also helping generate a larger following for the game at a time when the game is seeking to expand its footprint globally and become relevant in non-cricket playing countries,” 

“While gender bias has been the bane of many aspects of the world, the sports narrative seems to be different. It is heartening to see that cricket is making strides in helping women occupy their pride of place in the annals of cricketing history,”
