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

On Saturday against New Zealand in the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 match at Derby, Mithali smashed her sixth ODI century.

Meanwhile, after the win, Indian skipper said, "I'm extremely happy because for a couple of us, this is going to be the last World Cup".

Mithali is by far the greatest ever woman cricketer to have emerged from India. With the Indian bowlers tightening the noose, New Zealand never looked like winning the match. Priest survived two chances in three deliveries but her luck ran out as Jhulan Goswami caught the wicketkeeper-bat off her own bowling in the third over. The middle order, especially the attacking Harmanpreet Kaur, will also have to take up more responsibility if the top order falls short once again. As a 14-year-old, only 2 months after her provincial debut, she claimed 3 for 19 for the Wellington Blaze against Otago, as the Blaze claimed an emphatic 10-wicket victory to be crowned champions. She found an able ally in Harmanpreet, who made a crucial contribution despite her slow batting. Suzie Bates' decision to put India in to bat first was justified by Lea Tahuhu and Hannah Rowe as they dismissed Punam Raut (4) and Smriti Mandhana (13) respectively.

But if the team fails to go the distance, it might mean curtains for the record-breaking Indians, at the global stage at least.
