Best Tweets By Indian Cricketers Congratulating Mithali Raj For Her Record

He wrote: "A great moment for Indian Cricket, @M_Raj03 becomes the highest run scorer in Women's ODI Cricket History today".

With the win, Australia sealed its place in the semi-finals, while India was left with a must-win clash against New Zealand on Saturday. On the other side Australia have won four out of their five matches and are placed at number two in the points table. Australia's Andy Bichel (ODI v Namibia, 2003) and New Zealand's Mitchell Santner (ODI v Australia, 2016) have returned figures of 2 for 0. After winning the toss, Australian team chooses bowling first.

"Congratulations to #MithaliRaj on breaking Charlotte Edwards's record for most runs in women's ODIs", ICC's official twitter handle read.

The day belonged to Mithali, and her feat overshadowed Raut's second ODI hundred.

However, the fans quickly reminded Kohli that the picture he used on Facebook was that of Punam Raut and not Mithali.

She took two catches against England on Sunday and scored 40 despite being in discomfort, but said she is ready to play. "She has always been very different, very focussed".

By the time the 2009 World Cup came around, she had made a decision to quit the game after the tournament. "Playing for a stronger side with more players to stand up and win games, it gives you the freedom to play your shots and you don't have to think about what happens if you get out", Mithali told Espncricinfo. The fact that she would be the record-breaker in cricket, however, was predicted when she was just 10 years old. Noticeably, in her last 15 innings before the World Cup, Raj scored 833 runs at an average of 104.12.

The biggest achievement of Mitali Rajs's career is her consistency.

"We enjoy ourselves, when out there". Mithali was a late riser and to get her into the habit of rising early, her father started taking to the cricket camp where her brother was being coached.

This is the time she started enjoying cricket and made a decision to continue playing as there was recognition for the women's game. This was visible in England when a reporter asked who her favourite male cricketer was.

But, in a cricket-obsessed nation, the journey as a woman cricketer was not an easy one. "Do you ask them who their favourite female cricketer is?" Off the pacers, she was particularly punishing towards Megan Schutt, who she shovelled and lap-swept to pick off boundaries. "I am more into activities like painting and dancing".

She said: "It feels nice to score runs and pass that landmark, but I would have to say that was not my intention coming into this tournament". The fourth delivery she faced, off Poonam, she used her feet to send it over the bowler's head over the long-off delivery.
