The 2017 ICC Women's Cricket World Cup saw the Indian team make it to the finals and although it lost the game the tournament marked an unprecedented high for viewership for women's cricket in India. The ensuing euphoria that followed including the announcement of two film-deals with the team's leading stars ensured that the only direction where Indian women's cricket could go from there was up.

Free Hit is the untold story of how women's cricket in India got here and casts light on the gender-based pay gaps sponsorship challenges and the sheer indifference of cricketing officials it faced along the way. Focusing on Mithali Raj the world's greatest female batsman and Jhulan Goswami the leading wicket taker in women's cricket author Suprita Das takes us into the lives of the spirited bunch of women who across the years just like their male counterparts also brought home laurels that are worth celebrating.
