Hyderabad: India’s top woman cricketer Mithali Raj has urged the BCCI to organise more Test mathces for the national women team, which is  set to play its first five-day match in eight year when they tour England in August.The Test match in England will be their first since 2006. Mithali, 31, has played 148 ODIs since making her debut in 1999 but has featured in only eight Tests. “We are touring England in August and we are playing one Test. Though I have scored 214 in a Test match, I am playing a Test after eight long years. It is sad that there are so few Test matches in women’s cricket and I hope the Boards organise more Test matches for women,” she said.
