Virat Kohli leads in congratulating Mithali Raj

13 July 2017

Raj, who made her debut in 1999, was playing her 183rd ODI and has scored 6028 runs with the help of five centuries and 49 half-centuries. Despite being one of the brightest prospects in the Indian ranks, she couldn't make her mark in the Women's World Cup in 2000-01 as she was hit by a bout of typhoid. In the first ball of the 35th over, Lanning picked up a single off Goswami to complete her fifty.

Mitali Raj is not only a good One day or test player but also has also scored 1,708 runs in Twenty20 Internationals at an impressive average of 37.95. Kiran Baluch of Pakistan broke this record in March 2004, scoring 242 runs against West Indies in a Match.

Late last month, Mithali also became the only batswoman to score 7 consecutive half-centuries in global matches after she slammed 71 against England in the ongoing World Cup. Having lost the chance to hold on to the silverware in 2005, where Mithali-led India lost to Australia in the final, she doesn't want to let this opportunity go.

A rare six straight down the ground off Kristen Beams for Raj took her past a record 6000 ODI runs and took India to three figures in the 30th over of the game.

Mithali was first mentored by late Sampath Kumar and her raw talent was fine-tuned at Keye's High School for quite long.

She said, "Those who think that daughter is a weakness of Prime Minister will find me as the power and strength of Nawaz Sharif".

India captain Mithali Raj has called on her teammates to improve individually. However, under her leadership, the hosts crashed out of the tournament in the group phase.

Raj announced her arrival on global stage as a 16-year-old when she slammed her maiden hundred on debut against Ireland.

"It's a World Cup so every game has an edge to it". Overall, she has been not out 47 times, which is 15 more than any other player in women's ODIs. She also has an elder brother- Mithun Raj.

As an eight-year-old, Raj reportedly loved to sleep.
