Mithali Raj, who led Team India to the finals of the recently-concluded ICC Women's World Cup, was on Tuesday gifted a BMW by businessman V Chamundeswaranath. 

India ended up as the runner-up in the global tournament after losing to England in the finals by just nine runs. 

However, the team did put up a good show and gave a a tough fight through the tournament, managing to reach the finals. 

"This is not the first time, but the second time that he is gifting me a car," Mithali said. Back in 2005, he had gifted a Chevrolet to her after the team reached the World Cup finals where they lost to Australia.  

"He (Chamundeswaranath) is one person a sportsperson can count on for encouragement and support," she added. "Not just this, he has also gifted me many bats, with which I have scored a lot." 

This is not the first time that Chamundeswaranath has felicitated a sportsperson. Earlier, for their stellar performance in Rio Olympics 2016, PV Sindhu (badminton singles silver medallist), Sakshi Malik (women's wrestling bronze medallist), Dipa Karmarkar (women's gymnastics 4th spot finish) and Pullela Gopichand (badminton coach), were each gifted a BMW by the businessman.
