Best Tweets By Indian Cricketers Congratulating Mithali Raj For Her Record

Etching her name in the history books, she became the highest scorer in women's one-day worldwide (ODI) cricket and in the process, the first woman cricketer to reach the milestone of 6,000 runs in ODIs.

England and Australia both moved to 10 points with England placed at the top of the points table owing to a better net run-rate.

Despite, a century from Punam Raut and a fifty from Mithali Raj, a collective effort from Australian bowlers saw them reduce India to 226 for seven in the 50 overs. As country awaits women in blue to bring the World Cup home, we can only hope that Mithali Raj and the team will change the mindset of the people and encourage more girls to play cricket and other sports for India.

India will have another opportunity to qualify for semi-final when they will play New Zealand. Noticeably, in her last 15 innings before the World Cup, Raj scored 833 runs at an average of 104.12. Australia's Meg Lanning has the highest average of 54.12 followed by Ellyse Perry, who has an average of 50.

Mithali said: "There are times when you want to take calculated risks, but I can't really push it because if I lose my wicket, it's a big problem for the team". "As a team, we have to step up, as if we perform again like this it will not be enough", said the India skipper. She scored nine centuries and 46 half-centuries during her career, her highest being an unbeaten 173 against Ireland.

New Britain's Manafort Called To Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee
Trump Jr. said the meeting "really went nowhere" and that he never told his father about it because there was "nothing to tell". Richard Blumenthal, a member of the committee, said it was "long overdue" that Manafort be called to testify.

Australia was much improved in their game against India on Wednesday, turning around a poor bowling performance against England.

Raj, who survived two reviews during her innings, got to another milestone as she smashed an impressive six back over Kristen Beams' head to become the first woman ever to pass 6,000 ODI runs.

Australia maintain their only concern is getting the win and whether they play their final in Bristol or Derby is of no concern. We chose to take on the bowling, and we did that pretty well today. Once they were dismissed, Lanning and Perry completed the task with consummate ease.

Poonam Yadav, the leg-spinner, got the breakthrough, eliciting an edge to the wicketkeeper from a swinging Bolton and Deepti caught Mooney short of her crease with a direct hit. Mithali was named among the probables in the 1997 World Cup when she was just 14 but the selectors were not sure of blooding such a young player.

This also reflects in Mithali Raj's average which now stands at 51.81 compared to Edwards' 38.16.
