The woman who laid the foundation of Women in Blue : Shanta Rangaswamy

Today, everyone knows about women's cricket. People know that contribution of Mithali Raj is equivalent to the contribution of Sachin Tendulkar, the contribution of Virat as a batter is equivalent to Smriti's contribution to Women in Blue. Women have made their presence felt in the cricketing world today, with their amazing on-field performances. But the recognition of women cricketers is not an overnight thing. It happened because some young girls were ready to go against orthodox thinking to set an example for future generations. Out of the few names which come to our mind, Shanta Rangaswamy is the first and the pivotal one.
