There was not a single picture of any women cricketer.” - Taapsee Pannu recalls visiting Lords Cricket Ground 

Actress Taapsee Pannu will be seen playing iconic cricketer Mithali Raj in her soon to be released film 'Shabaash Mithu'. The actress underwent intense training to be able to convincingly portray a world class athlete and during the course of filming, she also got to spend time at the Mecca of Cricket, Lord's Cricket Ground.

Although Taapsee had a wonderful time at Lord's, she wasn't pleased by the fact that the stadium didn't have a single photo of a female cricketer. She told IANS, "It’s beautiful, it’s like a cricket museum, when I went there I saw all the stuff, the pictures and the memories that they’ve kept there are beautiful to take you back to the memory lane and make you understand the evolution of cricket, but the biggest disappointment for me in that stadium was there was not a single picture of any women cricketer.”

In a previous conversation with IANS, Taapsee had talked about how challenging it was for her to get in the shoes to Mithali Raj, she had stated, “It was a biggest challenge and especially for someone who has not played cricket ever before to portray a living legend like her-the first woman whose name comes to mind when you talk about women’s cricket."
