Post a glittering cricket career, Mithai Raj made her commentary debut with the India-South Africa match on Sunday.

“My predictions for semi-final spot, that is four spots will be India and South Africa from Group 2. From Group 1, it will be New Zealand and a toss-up between England and Australia. And the finalists, there is no doubt, India has to be there, and New Zealand,” she told Star Sports.
