Mithali Raj believes India fans would stand to benefit if the women's cricket matches were broadcasted. India women's cricket team captain Mithali Raj has attributed poor attendance in international matches to the lack of television coverage. Raj was speaking to local media in Potchefstroom on Sunday after beating hosts South Africa by eight wickets in a quadrangular series that also included Ireland and Zimbabwe. It was the fourth time that India beat South Africa in their last five outings, but there was a very small crowd to witness the final. "Back in India, we do have a lot of people coming and watching the matches," Raj told TV channel News. "It is important that we market the sport. If we are playing a series, or a bilateral series, it is important that it is broadcasted because a lot of people back home are so inquisitive to know the result of the game.
