The BBC on Wednesday named Indian women's cricket team captain Mithali Raj as one of the most influential women in India. Mithali is currently the highest run-getter in ODIs and also led the team to the ICC Women's World Cup final in England, where they lost to the hosts by a narrow margin of 9 runs. 

The list has been inspired by the BBC 100 Women Challenge, which will be held in Delhi from October 9-13 where a team will look at the female illiteracy. 

Other places hosting the 100 Women Challenge are: Silicon Valley from October 2nd6th where a group will tackle the glass ceiling; safety on public transport will be the focus for the London and Nairobi team from October 16th - 20th; and finally from October 23rd -27th women in Rio will consider sexism in sport.
