The Indian women's cricket team landed in Mumbai early on Wednesday. 

They were met with a rousing welcome from their fans. 

"None of us ever experienced this kind of reception," ANI reported captain Mithali Raj as saying. 

"Good that women are doing really in sports and they should be celebrated," she added.
