July 12, 2017
India skipper Mithali Raj sets a world record by becoming the highest run-getter in women’s ODI cricket. She scored 6002 runs in 164 innings to beat Charlotte Edwards’ record.
Raj, 34, is often dubbed as the Sachin Tendulkar of women’s cricket.
The right-handed batswoman has been a prolific run-scorer and averages a whopping 51.37. She is still the youngest to slam a ton on her debut and youngest ever ODI centurion.
