Mithali Raj had on July 12 created a world record by becoming the first player to cross 6,000 runs in the history of women's One-Day Internationals (ODIs) during the ICC World Cup match against Australia in Bristol.
This is the not the first time that Chamundeswarinath, popularly known as Chamundi, has gifted a luxury car to Mithali.
The city-based sports administrator had also presented her a car in 2007, in recognition of the women's cricket team reaching the finals of the World Cup in 2005.
The Indian women's cricket team was the runner-up in the recent world cup after losing to England by nine runs. However, the team's magnificent performance to reach the finals won laurels from all quarters.
