Soon after landing in the country, Mithali met the BCCI officials to talk over the issue. She also admitted that she has never felt this humiliated in her 20 years of career.
“For the first time in a 20 year long career, I felt deflated, depressed and let down. I am forced to think if my services to my country are of any value to a few people in power who are out to destroy me and break my confidence,” Raj wrote.

The entire episode has led to board secretary Amitabh Choudhary writing a mail to Johri and Karim, enquiring how the leak happened.
“I was taken aback by media reports today, obviously based on leaks, reporting content of the email apparently written by Ms Mithali Raj. I am not sure to whom the email was addressed though it remains a fact that the undersigned is convenor of the national women’s selection committee and the concerned recipient(s) should immediately have copied the same to me.
It is clear that the contents are extremely damaging to certain individual persons and therefore to the BCCI. Please let me know the facts of the case at the earliest,” Hindustan Times reported.
