Mithali was able to get only two correct calls out of eleven times. She said, "I go through a lot of pressure when I walk in for the toss. Whether to call or spin the coin, I'm very bad at it. 

"But today when the match was a little delayed due to the rain, the video analyst said let's try the best of eleven. I think even there in my percentage I won twice in those eleven times."

After Mithali won the toss in the final ODI, she decided to bowl first in the 47-over match. It turned out to be a good call as India finally won a match in the three-match ODI series. They defeated England by 4 wickets and Mithali was the Player-of-the-Match for her unbeaten 75 runs.
