Mithali Raj's cricket record delights Indians

Mithali Raj's cricket record delights Indians

She has become the highest run-scorer in the history of women's one-day global cricket on Wednesday. She took 183 matches and in 164 innings to reach the landmarks.

Hopefully, all these anomalies will be set right in India's final league match against New Zealand.

Not that her batting average of over 50 leaves any doubts about her consistency at the global level.

He congratulated Mithali but posted Poonam Raut's pic. Following a morale-shattering defeat in Bristol, India skipper Mithali Raj has called on her team to step up and improve their performance in "virtual quarter-final" clash against New Zealand on July 15. She scored 69 off 114 balls, yet India lost the match.

Australian Team Members: Rachael Haynes, Megan Schutt, Elyse Villani, Alex Blackwell, Alyssa Healy (wk), Meg Lanning (c), Ellyse Perry, Jess Jonassen, Nicole Bolton, Beth Mooney, Kristen Beams, Amanda Wellington, Sarah Aley, Ashleigh Gardner, Belinda Vakarewa.

"When I went in [at 52-3] and saw Tammy, we knew we needed a partnership", she said. Perhaps Raj's most remarkable stat, though, is that she has averaged over 40 in ODIs in 18 calendar years since her debut - the same number as Tendulkar managed over his own career. The 28-year-old is a far more capable batswoman than her scores of 24*, 10, 20, 0, 23 between Nos. "If we perform again like this, it will not be enough", Mithali said post-match on Wednesday. "But the bowlers didn't look penetrative, it was a slow wicket". She scored 6028 runs and beat Charlotte Edwards, who was in the first position, with 5992 runs. We made a decision to take on the bowling, and we did that pretty well today. She was honoured to be recognised as one of the six Wisden India Cricketers of the Year for 2015.

Perry then joined Lanning and the took the ones and twos and occasional boundaries to keep the scoreboard ticking.

Among the Indian eves Mithali Raj now sits pretty at the top with 6028 runs.

After a bright start against England in their opening game and winning easily against two Asian sub-continent opponents and a lowly West Indies, India's form dipped against South Africa.

Lanning won the toss and elected to field and Ashleigh Gardner's early scalp of the unsafe Smriti Mandhana (3) gave Australia the immediate upper hand in their quest to return to the top of the World Cup standings.
