New Delhi:

Star Indian batswoman Mithali Raj is seeking tips from Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni to prepare better for next year's Women's World Cup in Australia.

The former skipper of the Indian women's team said that since they hardly have opportunities to play international matches before the quadrennial event in March, suggestions from the star duo of the men's team would help them prepare well.

"The level at which they play, their opinion would be significant for us. If I get a chance I would love to take some tips from Sachin about my batting," Mithali, who turns 26 on Wednesday, said.

The former skipper is also an admirer of men's team captain Dhoni and said she would love to learn some tricks of the trade from the Khel Ratna awardee.

"I want to take some tips from Dhoni on leading the side in big tournaments. Advice of all the senior players of the men's cricket team would be helpful for us because they belong to a different league altogether," she said.

The Indian women's team is relying on domestic cricket matches and training camps in the next three months to prepare for the World Cup as no international matches are scheduled in this period.

However, Mithali is not worried as she believes the recently concluded one-day series in Australia has given them a chance to get familiarised with conditions Down Under.
