MUMBAI:  Indian veteran Mithali Raj was today retained as the Indian ODI and T20 captain for the upcoming limited-overs series against South Africa starting November 24.

Mithali, who has been leading the national women's side since 2005, had to briefly play under veteran Anjum Chopra and Jhulan Goswami but has led India for most part of her career.
