Mithali Raj - From Bharatnatyam dancer to cricket icon

Meg Lanning says her right shoulder will be in good enough shape to lead Australia against England

Captain of the Indian women's cricket team, Mithali Raj created a world record Wednesday by becoming the first player to cross 6,000 runs in the history of women's ODI during the World Cup match against Australia here.

The now deleted post read: "A great moment for Indian cricket, Mithali Raj becomes the highest run scorer in Women's ODI Cricket History today". Mithali has reached this milestone in 164 innings, which is 16 less than Charlotte.

"Even for New Zealand, probably, it will be a do-or-die match".

She tops the woman's batting table with 703 ratings.

Earlier, it was Poonam Raut and Mithali Raj who stood tall as they took India to 175 runs in 40 overs, Raut scoring a scintillating century and Raj 69.

Despite losing her captaincy temporarily, Mithali got her captain's arm-band back in a few years and has already led India in 106 ODIs.

India now faces New Zealand in a playoff for the final semi spot and captain Mithali Raj said all-round improvement was needed to secure it. In the first ball of the 35th over, Lanning picked up a single off Goswami to complete her fifty.

"I don't think Mitahli Raj gets the credit she deserves at times", said Edwards.

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

"We enjoy ourselves, when out there. But the bowlers didn't look penetrative, it was a slow wicket".

That scenario would keep them in Bristol, where they've played four of their six matches, but finishing second or third would see the side move north to Derby.

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.

"We really have to improve all over the pitch, especially producing more consistency from how we are bowling and fielding".

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.

Averaging 51 in both Tests and WODIs, Raj has scored six worldwide centuries and has been dismissed five times in the nineties. The middle-order batsman made her ODI debut against Ireland at Milton Keynes and immediately announced her arrival on the world stage.

After a bright start against England in their opening game and winning easily against two Asian sub-continent opponents and a lowly West Indies, India's form dipped against South Africa.
