Mithali slid a rung on the ranking with 686 rating points following her below-par performance in the just-ended Women's World Cup. India's experienced captain scored 182 runs in seven games at a strike rate of 26. Additionally, there are worries about the 39-year-ability old to continue representing India at the international level following India's departure from the ICC Women's World Cup.
