Rajasthan, Jodhpur's Star Woman Cricketer Mithali Raj Creates History in Indian Cricket

Posted July 14, 2017

India's star woman player Mithali Raj has been bagging headlines after becoming the highest run scorer in ODI cricket edging past Charlotte Edwards on Wednesday.

Australia assured itself of advancing along with England and South Africa, who won their respective matches against New Zealand and Sri Lanka. It has been 18 years and she is an unstoppable force in the women's cricket world and breaking records like no other has. Her knock, along with a spectacular 106 from opener Punam Raut helped India post a respectable total of 226-7 against the defending champions.

Australia captain Meg Lanning says the secret to her run scoring success with Ellyse Perry is all about understanding, communication and enjoying themselves.

India are due to play New Zealand on Saturday in a must-win game.

Veda Krishnamurthy was run out next ball for a diamond duck, then Sydney Thunder star Harmanpreet Kaur was stumped off the bowling of Megan Schutt. "She was a late riser and to get her into the habit of rising early, I started taking her to a cricket camp where my son was being coached". As a team, we have to step up, as if we perform again like this it will not be enough.

US Marine, Navy Plane Crash Victims
Seven of 16 service members who died in the crash of a transport plane were part of a special operations unit, the U.S. It is operated by three crew members and can carry 92 ground troops or 64 paratroopers, according to a Navy website.

"We started well, but we have not been consistent with the way we wanted to play in the tournament", admitted Raj. Who has scored the most runs in ODI cricket. The slow bowlers have accounted for 28 of the 39 wickets that the Indians have claimed in the six matches. Not only this, Mithali Raj, who had made her debut for Team India at the tender age of 17, has also become the only women cricketer in the world to have maximum number of (49) half-centuries in her name.

Perry finished the chase with a boundary from the first ball of the 46th over, but Lanning said neither had been aware a record was in the offing.

The only encouraging factor for India is that they will take on the White Ferns at the venue where they have a 100 per cent win record in this World Cup.

Much like Tendulkar, referring to the constant burden of pressure and expectations that she's carried all through her career, Mithali said it always played on her mind.

She said: "Lanning has all the shots, and the form she is in at the moment surely will only take her another four or five years to break that record". She was dismissed for 69 (114b 4x4 1x6) by Beams on her own delivery in an attempt to score quickly.
