The BBC named Indian women's cricket team (Test and ODI) 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.
The list has been inspired by the BBC 100 Women Challenge, which will be held in Delhi from 9-13 October where a team will look at the female illiteracy.
The other women named in the list, according to The Times of India, are Ira Trivedi – writer, yoga teacher and activist, Tulika Kiran – teacher of kids in Tihar prison for the last 8 years, Dr Urvashi Sahni – social entrepreneur, women's rights activist and educationist, and Nitya Thummalachetty – a business analyst at a healthcare analytics company in New York.
