India's Mithali Raj becomes leading run-scorer in Women's ODIs

Here's One Dish that the Indian Women's Cricket Team Skipper Mithali Raj Wouldn't Share with You

India would be aiming for their maiden World Cup win this time around which has been heavily dominated by Australia and England.

"You can't just give up because you lose one game", said Raj. Gayakwad returned career-best haul of 5 for 15, also the best bowling figures of this World Cup, to vindicate the captain's call for change at the expense of in-form Ekta Bisht. Jhulan Goswami won the title of leading wicket taker in women cricket when she got her 181 wicket in a match against South Africa.

At the age of 17, Raj was picked for the Indian team and in 1999, she made her debut in England against Ireland in a WODI match.

Mithali, who in the earlier match against australia became the highest run-getter in ODIs and first batswoman to reach 6000 runs, continued with her purple patch.

Mithali became the first woman cricketer in history to achieve the milestone, and Virat Kohli took to social media to congratulate her on the achievement.

Former Gamecock Jared Cook wins ESPY for 'Best Play'
It's for that fantastic "He went to Jared" catch in the Packers-Cowboys divisional round playoff game. Cook finished with six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the game.

India posted 265-7 after being asked to bat, recovering from a patchy start mainly through a quality 109 from captain Mithali Raj - her sixth ODI century.

Amy Satterthwaite top-scored for the White Ferns with just 26. Even in this match, scoring runs won't be an easy task.

The two veterans, who are more towards the end of their proud careers than the beginnings, have done more than anyone else to raise the profile of the women's game in India. She has been creating and breaking records in a big stage. "This victory will go a long way in boosting our team's confidence with the ICC World Cup title in sight".

Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut, Deepti Sharma and Raj have all been in good touch through the tournament but the batting lineup has not clicked together, except in the opener when they scored 281.
