Mithali Raj becomes highest scorer in women's one-day internationals

Rao, who sent a congratulatory message to Raj, said she made the country proud with her achievement, a release from his office said.

Mithali Raj has become the highest run scorer in Women's One Day Internationals (WODI). Despite earning the tag of pre-tournament favourites, the desperate need to better their recent record in World Cups can bring in extra pressure and New Zealand would be cautious to not let that deny them another shot at glory. Kiwis won the toss and they have invited India to bat first in a must win the encounter.

Mithali was appointed as the captain of the women's team in 2004 and since then she led the side in more than 100 WODIs.

At Bristol, they were defeated by a dominant Australia by eight wickets, despite a fighting century from Punam Raut, and a record breaking 69 from captain Mithali Raj.

India capitalised the poor start in the middle overs, milking 16-year-old leg-spinner Amelia Kerr for 64 runs besides skipper Suzie Bates leaking 59 from her 8 overs. She joined the elite list comprising of Debbie Hockley, Janette Brittin, Charlotte Edwards, and Belinda Clarke.

New Zealand were never in the chase.

When is the ICC Women's World Cup match between India vs New Zealand? 7 runs later, she became the first to score 6,000 runs and she did that with a six down town.

On the other hand, some avid supporters tried to defend Kohli's lapse by suggesting that the cricketer's intentions came out of respect and he shouldn't be mocked for a mistake, The Indian Express reported. Krishnamurthy was there to give impetus to the Indian innings towards the close and she was by far the most aggressive batswomen as she was always looking for big shots. If it is a very crucial game in the T20s, the World Cup, or even just that dictates a series win, we tend to fall down in that match.
